We are delighted to announce we’ve raised $1.6 million in seed funding, with the round being led by venture capital firm Index Ventures.

We know we’re building something that’s essential for fashion businesses, and with this new capital and the combined wisdom of our brilliant backers, we’re priming the pump with more products, people and information.

Over the last year, we’ve met a lot of amazing people, both through our involvement in Seedcamp and along the way. We’re thrilled some have been able to join us by investing alongside Index; Alex Zubillaga, Fred Destin at Atlas Venture, Shana Fisher at High Line Venture Partners, Sylvie Gabriel and Joanne Wilson.

We’re especially pleased to welcome our new chairman Robin Klein, who brings a lifetime of experience and strategy from the retail, fashion and technology world.
