The Young Enterprise Award was given to a small team and I. We introduced a new fashion brand called Vindæ, deriving from the word 'vintage' in Latin. Here, we upholstered, repaired and restyled unloved clothing and sold these online to give them a new life. The focus of the project was sustainability and charity. All profits made were given to charities which had directly supported team members in the past.
