Summary of your idea

My idea is a fashion boutique where people with growth problems (little people) could buy trendy clothes and accessories, even according to their own ideas.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Nowadays, it is really hard for little people to dress like anybody else because they can buy only childish or foolish clothes. As I see, shops with such products are in great demand, so to build such a business would be a great success.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Financing source first would be from loans and supports, later the business would maintain itself and hopefully make profit from which the business could spread or other businesses could be established. The business model would be a small business with at most 5 people at the start (manager, shop assistant, 1-2 dressmaker(s), designer(s), and other craftswomen or artists).

Your profile

I am a 29-year-old Hungarian girl, a teacher of computer science, and have an elder sister with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis with a side effect of growth problem. She wants to wear clothes like normal-sized women but she rarely finds trendy pieces, and adults-like clothes never turn up. Therefore, we came up with the idea to create a business for this kind of problem as we think that many others have. Beside clothes, we would offer other accessories (jewellery, bags, hair pieces, etc.), and an opportunity to make motifs onto the clothes from customers' ideas (clothes-tattoo).
