Explain your idea in details:
The main goals are: - Contribution to Gender Equality - Contributing to decent work and economic growth. Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Providing women and girls with equal access to decent work, and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large. That is the goal of this business idea; to produce clothing for business women with the intent of promoting gender equlity, decent work and economic growth. Activities: 1. Identify the potential suppliers of fabric and the necessary accompanying accessories, 2. Identify potential actions for dressing and sewing clothes, 3. Perform a craft registration (startup firm) 4. Rent a space for craftsmanship 5. Perform decorating arrangements and obtain the necessary equipment and furniture 6. Sign the Contract with the Suppliers 7. Sign the Contract for Sewing and Sewing Works, 8. Make the first models 9. Set up a contest and receive an employee 10. Identify the first "brand ambassadors" and agree on co-operation 11.

Create electronic invitations 15. Plan and conduct the opening ceremony Innovative approaches: After establishing a business and for the innovative approach, I want to link the IT and Textile Sector with the goal of using software solutions to create the perfect tailor-made sketch. I have already talked to Andrea Murani (https://andreamurani.com/) who has developed the programming language and tools that generate a 3D modeled heap in accordance with 32 measures. They only currently wear shirts, and I want to work with other IT experts in the same way as other clothing items.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The business idea will have a positive impact on sustainable development through representation of gender equality and decent work and economic growth by working with business women from all business sectors. Sustainable economic growth will require societies to create the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs that stimulate the economy while not harming the environment. In the first phase (first year) of business, I want to create a condition for direct employment for one person (working with clients, taking measures, communicating with suppliers and tailoring and sewing shops), as well as creating indirect income for those with whom I will cooperate. In the coming years, as business develops, my desire is to start self-production (cropping and sewing), open shops throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina, and later in the region and in the world.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The business model implies the registration of a small company that will initially hire a person who will work directly with clients (take measures, communicate with suppliers, communicate with the grooming and sewing work ...). Linking with the IT sector will improve tailor-made garments. Funding is planned from personal sources and preferably by organizations willing to fund sturtup ideas. The cooperation will be established with suppliers of fabrics and materials, knitting and sewing shops, and IT sector experts.
I'm 32 years old business woman. I'm working as a municipal advisor for local development. Through my business I daily meet with business women with whom I have come to the conclusion that in B & H there is no concrete clothing for business women, there is no clothes that can be worn throughout the working day, which will feel comfortable, beautiful and professional. For this reason, I have been researching the market for a year and trying to explore IT solutions for designing and tailoring tailor-made clothing for business women. I've been designing and crafting some items for my self and I've been thrilled by the many business women, and I believe that the need for such a business really exists and that this business will be very successful.
