Caroline and Vivien recently graduated from Imperial College London with Masters degrees in Chemistry. They worked together as lab partners, at Imperial College, but a few months later came up with the concept and upon graduating decided to start Clotho London, to solve the problem of clothes that sit in one’s closets and at the same time address issues of environmental impact of fast-fashion.

In less than a year since they began developing their concept they have attended two startup accelerators: Entrepreneurs First, and now TrueStart, which specialises in startups in the retail sector. They seek to disrupt both the fast fashion and online peer-to-peer fashion marketplace industries.

They aim to do this by providing a consumer-focused, sustainable e-commerce solution, Clotho London.

Helping to build Clotho London is Diana K. Lee, a second year Mathematical Physics student who started collaborating as a university brand manager at UCL, and now manages web design, development, marketing, and communications, working part-time for the company.

The Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine is a public research university located in London, United Kingdom. Imperial is consistently included among the world’s best universities, ranking 2nd in the world, in the 2014 QS World University Rankings. Imperial is the only university in the UK to focus exclusively on science, medicine, engineering and business.

Vivien Tand and Caroline Wood received the Mayor of London’s 2015 Low Carbon Entrepreneur Prize.
