FashionTrade is an online start-up founded in 2016 and based in Amsterdam. The company is at the forefront of bringing digital transformation to fashion wholesale. They want to simplify the global fashion wholesale industry through an online marketplace where brands and retailers can connect and drive their businesses. They help retailers find the best brands that match their style and segment – whilst giving brands the opportunity to move into new markets by connecting them with shops that operate there. Digital technologies and disruptive innovations have changed the once-traditional fashion wholesale business and FashionTrade.com will lead the way.
FashionTrade responds to a shift in the fashion industry landscape. It is a shift towards digital solutions that enable and improve the scalability and efficiency of fashion brands and retailers alike. Although many fashion companies have vastly improved their online offerings, fashion wholesale has unfortunately remained fairly unchanged. Because they largely rely solely on trade shows to build network relationships, shipments of samples and manual order placement according to fixed cycles, they promote inflexibility and inefficiency.
“We believe the time is right to redefine the value digital solutions have in fashion wholesale, so that brands and retailers can increase their overall supply-chain efficiency. Freeing time and resources to focus on innovation within their segment is invaluable!” – FashionTrade.com
