WHO ARE WE?
I'M REBECCA MARIE
I started Purpose over the summer of 2018 and worked through the Young Enterprise programme when I was in Year 13 (2019).
I've always loved business and tried some smaller things before deciding I wanted a bigger challenge.
AND THIS IS PURPOSE SWIMWEAR
Purpose came from a love of the environment, sustainable fashion and not being able to find the bikinis I wanted on the market.
All our swimwear is made with EcoNyl.
A nylon made out of plastic collected from the ocean.
So you can look good whilst doing your part.

WHAT ARE WE?
LAUNCHING SUMMER 2020
We will be up this summer.
With a small drop and low production quantities sent in each week.
SO WHAT's HAPPENING?
WE RECEIVED $10,000 FUNDING!
From George FM's Samsung Supersize your side hustle competition.
My friend James sent me the competition and told me to enter.
I posted a promo for Purpose on my instagram and tagged George FM. They got in touch and I had to complete a one minute pitch over the phone - live on radio.
When I got back to Thailand I headed to the studio.
Pitched with the other finalist.
We then had 24 hours to get the most votes through text and instagram story poll.
24 hours later we were back in the studio finding out we had won the $10,000!!
