About Johanna Moonan: Johanna is the founder of OpenClosit, coined ’the Airbnb for your wardrobe’, which allows its members to shop the designer wardrobes of others to rent a one-time-wear outfit directly from its owner. Similarly, its listers can keep their dressy, special occasion garments in their closet while listing them for rent on the platform. In this way, Johanna aims to extend the life cycle of garments and create a more circular fashion industry. Before developing the OpenClosit platform, Johanna worked at various advertising firms and technology companies. Her educational background is in advertising and technology from Western University in her native Canada.
