SAN FRANCISCO– Staying streamlined goes hand in hand with growth for wearable art start-up Vida.
In the 11 months since its launch in November with $1.3 million in venture funding and 75 original designs from 23 artists, the San Francisco-based start-up has increased its portfolio to some 10,000 designs from creators that hail from 500 cities in 150 countries. Each week brings an average of 500 new designs, uploaded image files from the fine artists, sculptors, painters and photographers who use the site to turn their work into garments and receive 10 percent of the net sales.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
