    ABOUT VIDA

    VIDA is a global platform that brings together creatives and manufacturers from around the world to create unique, original apparel and accessories - on-demand, at mass-scale. A curator of creative voices, VIDA showcases Art x Fashion from New York to LA, Mumbai to Madrid, and Tokyo to Tel Aviv. Our designers include world-renowned artists from 150+ countries around the world and our manufacturers range from textile mills to cut & sew units across India, Turkey, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and more. We've launched over 2.5M unique products on our platform and have grown our business 10x+ year over year. Additionally, we've proudly partnered with the Museum of Modern Art, Cher, Steve Madden, and Iris Apfel, amongst others to launch exclusive collaborations.

    Each of our products is custom-made, on-demand, and has a unique story - from the inspiration behind its design to the personal stories of our artists. For every product made, VIDA offers education and empowerment programs to our factory workers so they can build a better future for themselves and their families. Our goal is to rebuild commerce from the ground-up such that everyone in the ecosystem wins.
