Spanish fashion startups are in "fashion".

Integral service around a transaction
BY : Diego GutiérrezDecember Wed, 2015
Taking advantage of the fact that Vudoir has recently received a round, we wanted to review Spanish startups in the fashion sector that have aroused the interest of investors in 2015 and are having great success. Among the most successful business models we find collaborative consumption, and we have also detected that artificial vision is gaining a foothold in the world of fashion.


Vudoir raises €90,000 in a round of funding

Vudoir is a fashion social network, which works like a stylist. Users of the application can publish two photographs with different outfits to be advised by the community, which votes on which proposal they like best..

The startup, which participates in the incubator Connector, has raised 90,000 euros in a financing round and counts among its mentors figures such as Manel Jadraque, former CEO of Desigual, Micky Ribera, founder of Be AdAgency and partner of Globally, Marc Vidal and Vanessa Estorach.

Among the investors who have already entered Vudoir's capital are Carlos Blanco and Eduardo Navarro, CEO and founding partner of the venture capital fund Sherpa Capital.

E-shop Ventures buys The TV Closet

The TV cabinet merged with E-shop in January 2015.

 "El Armario de la Tele has been owned since mid-2013 by Atresmedia, which joined the company's capital in a €9M financing round in which the wealth advisory firm Attitude and the Bonsai fund also participated. Venture Capitala shareholder of El Armario de la Tele since 2011" says Diego Gutierrez from Abra-Invest.

E-shop ventures already counted fashion companies such as Molet and Matby in its portfolio.

Buy it closes a round through crowdlending

Buy it is a mobile application that allows you to find out about all the current offers of your favourite fashion brands, both in their physical and online shops, such as Springfield, Pull & Bear, Bershka, Mango, Pedro del Hierro or Hollister among many others.

Last February this startup received €42,000 in the crowdlending platform Lignum Capital.

In the US there are platforms with the same business model that are proving very successful, such as Shopular, which in a year and a half has achieved 5M downloads.

Percentile and Chicfy fashion and collaborative consumption platforms get funding

Percentile, the e-commerce of second-hand women's and children's clothing, closed in November a €3.2M round led by Seaya Ventures in which I also participate ACTIVE Venture Partners.

The round will be used to consolidate its expansion in Europe - where it already operates in Spain, Germany, France and Austria - and to grow its new women's fashion line.

"As we told you in a previous previous postPercentil bought its German competitor in March this year. Thanks to this acquisition, the company now has a processing centre in Berlin with a team of 25 people, 35,000 garments in stock and thousands of sellers and buyers in Germany and Austria," says Diego Gutierrez of Abra-Invest.

Chicfy, a competitor of Percentil, also raised €360,000 in 2014, led by Cabiedes and Partners.

Shot and Shop and Chicismo, Spanish startups applying technology to fashion

Shot & Shop (shoot and buy), allows you to photograph clothes, shoes or accessories with your mobile phone to find the same or similar items and buy them in online shops. This is achieved from a database that already includes more than 1.1 million fashion products from more than 5,000 brands. In addition, with this app users can choose the most appropriate combination to go aesthetically matched.

The company has just moved to Silicom Valley with the aim of finding more opportunities to grow, improve the search engine and perhaps take the company public, "although another option is that another company buys us first," says the founder.

Chicism is an application with a search engine that allows you to combine a type of garment and a colour, and returns suggestions in the form of photographs uploaded by users, as well as filtering whether you need an outfit for work, going out for a drink, going to a party, going for a walk, in summer or winter.
