An opportunity to join this unique game changing fashion company is now made available.

We are forecasting a healthy profit potential and project a money multiple of:

The problem this product solves
Research and our own expertise has highlighted:
1) Brand scarcity: many sought after designer brands that appear in fashion magazines and media are not available in Sweden.
2) Personalisation and customer experience: The Scandinavian market is substantially trailing global e-commerce innovators.
3) Innovative retail and customer services: The quality in the local market is not comparable to leading foreign suppliers.
The local women’s high-end fashion market is failing to respond to these 3 key areas allowing huge revenues to be lost abroad. This is a threat to the Swedish fashion market though also highlights an exciting and very real opportunity.
How the product solves it
Mouche, a leader in introducing new international designers to Sweden for the past 12 years, has only been available in the west of Sweden through one boutique in Gothenburg.
With a new focus on 3 key areas: e-commerce, customer experience and innovative services, Mouche is now being launched to the whole of Scandinavia.
The new e-commerce platform is providing a highly visual, content rich, personalised experience. Customers will be taken on an exquisite journey.
Mouche will deliver innovative customer services placing our customers central to everything we do. VIP events, styling, personal shopping, beauty advice and more will be available
Mouche always endeavor to look for the most sought after, though hard to find designers, capitalising on our extensive industry relations and creating a catalogue truly unique within the region.
Unlike our competitors Mouche™ is trademarked and have an ‘own brand’ line offering attractive margins. Satu Manganas- the main designer is also planning exciting collaborations with other designers.
The Apartment/Boutique showroom that invites the public into an inspirational space and into the world of the Mouche-girl is where we offer personal shopping and styling services and host exclusive fashion events.
Product use cases
The Mouche-girl is looking for something different to stand out in the crowd, they appreciate style and quality and have active, busy lives often travelling extensively. They desire quick access to their favourite brands and content while doing so in the company of like-minded individuals. The new Mouche will provide this in store and online, while also providing exclusive events across platforms, for example sneak previews for customers online but also at social soirees. Mouche will provide an exquisite experience to their Mouche-girls, a platform to buy their style and talk lifestyle.

Over 6 million females in Scandinavia shop online more than once a month and clothing being in the top categories, forecast to double in volume over the next 3 years.
Research indicates that these shoppers choose to shop abroad due to brand scarcity though would prefer to shop at local, regional suppliers.
Mouche's customer base consists of 5000 women, 1500 regular customers that are standing on our doorstep within the Gothenburg region. The new model now also opens the door to the rest of the 6mill + female online shoppers across Scandinavia.
The current competitive landscape in the high-end fashion industry in Scandinavia is limited and consequently substantial gaps remain. The two nearest comparable competitors are showing y-o-y increases of between 50-80%. Brands are realising the need to become more social, personalised and to provide richer content though none delivering to a required standard. The consumer in the luxury market appreciates a deeper personal experience when purchasing high value items, an experience that the current competitors do not provide. The Mouche team possess both the skills and experience required to provide the market with the much needed high end shopping experience.
Unique differentiator from competitors
Mouche will define market position by providing:
• access to ‘exclusive’ or hard to find and sought after style
• a high quality own brand line that competitors do not have
• best of class customer service and exceptional personalised customer experience both online and off, driven by flawless retail management and people excellence.
• innovative online social functionality, VIP program and services.
• the most compelling inspirational online content
• a community, a fashion tribe and actively seek to engage, through a variety of means that
competitors do not.
Executed by the most experienced management team in the market.
