In a recent development of fashion and tech coming together, The Epic group chairman, Mr. Ranjan Mahtani has ventured into the start-up space. He angel funded an undisclosed amount to a Mumbai-based fashion start-up called Fashionablyin.com founded by Tarun Thadani.
Fashionablyin is an online geolocated fashion directory and marketplace. It focuses at bridging the offline-online gap by creating a simple platform for fashion trade. The company aims at organizing fragmented suppliers, digitizing their catalogs and getting them live on the Fashoinablyin website. Users can rate and review listed companies through an intuitive #CPQrating system based on credibility, price and quality.
“It is hard to find good and reliable suppliers who are located in different regions specialized in specific services or products. We wanted to make the search simple and accessible to everyone. We are building a resource base for the Fashion Industry,” states Thadani.
With its beta version live already, the company claims over 2000 businesses from all over the world have already registered. The new version of the site will be running on the 15th of this month with a variety of new features like friend following and social networking. The company has already started making revenues by selling packaged marketing services to its clients.
The collaboration will be mentored by Mr. Ranjan Mahtani who has taken a personal interest in this project. Mr. Mahtani has successfully transformed The Epic Group from a buying agent to becoming a large multinational company that employees over 30,000 people worldwide with revenues exceeding $500 million.
