A friend of mine just shared with me her new Startup, Project DIY, and its a cool project so I had to share it here. Following the trends of delivery subscription purchases, it is a subscription box of materials to make your own (hence the DIY) fashion accessories inspired by what is trending on the runway. Or as they say: Runway and Street Style Inspired DIYs Delivered MonthlyI I love the fact that it mixes fashion but also creative flair! you can get cool accessories and get your creative juices flowing – Im all about that. The kits are $30 per month.
How do they describe themselves: At M&J Trimming, we’re constantly impressed by our customers’ style and creativity, so we decided to start Project DIY, where every month our talented in-house jewelry designers will curate unique and original DIY projects inspired by the runways and hot trends for the season using materials and trims from M&J Trimming. We’ll help you make your own fashion accessories, providing you the inspiration, ideas, instructions and materials to make a collection of new projects each month based on a fashion trend or runway story, delivered strait to your door. Unlike the typical shopping trip, Project DIY is designed to get your creative juices flowing, providing customizable options and tips from our staff of DIY enthusiasts so you can make your accessories truly your own. And when you’re finished, you can share your custom creations, exchanging ideas with us and our Project DIY community. Explore, indulge and be inspired.
