Kloset Karma App – The average woman spends around 2K in fashion per year but never finds anything to wear, because the most women regularly use only 20% of her closet items, and the other 80% is donated or becomes garbage. The Kloset Karma app allows users to capitalize on the clothing that they don’t wear anymore to get brand new outfits from other users in the marketplace keeping the items’ value vs selling it for only 40% of the original value. Now, with the increase use of social media and self-exposure, fashion consumption numbers are growing even more, since young women need a much faster rotation of clothes than ever before, but their parents or them don’t have bigger budgets to afford it, and that’s how Kloset Karma can help!
