Fernando Cuscuela – “No Better Location Than Miami”

There are amazing businesses in Miami that aren’t getting the exposure they deserve. I had to move to San Francisco just so I could introduce my company to investors over there. They would never have known who I was otherwise.

I’d have a backdoor to my friends’ closets and they would have access to mine. A much more efficient way to consume fashion.”

Paula Celestino and her partner Christopher Rivera founded Kloset Karma to allow young women to continuously update their wardrobe by trading articles of clothing with other women, thereby extending the life cycle of their purchase and minimizing expenses.
