We are based in Oslo, Norway. Which makes it natural for us to start with a launch in Norway, global expansion is a part of our strategy.
Only in Norway, it´s over 7500 retail stores selling clothing. It´s over 500 suppliers supplying these retail stores. And altogether it´s over 19.000 fashion brands represented in Norway.
Through researches we came to realize that only almost 40% of these companies are visible online.
Today, people search for fashion using internet more than ever before. They use social medias such as blogs, Pinterest, Instagram. Tumblr, Facebook and many more. Online retailers increase in number and their sales are breaking selling records for every year. Online trading has never been this successful ever before and the trend is very positive for the future.
Nowadays people have higher awareness of what to wear, and plan their shoppings in advance, but not as common where to buy. Planning your shopping can be difficult, you have to ask around, look in magazines, follow fashion blogs, join social medias, get in contact with different brands and so forth. It ́s a very active way of keeping yourself updated but then again, also very time consuming.
The Internet is generally a great source of information, but not when it comes to locate fashion.
Our vision is to change that!
