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
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 Kirondo.de 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
(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.
