WindowsWear, the window shopping and trend forecasting website that features the world’s fashion windows online in real-time, celebrates its one year anniversary since launching on November 19, 2012. The company also closed a friends and family round of financing.
WindowsWear covers seven major fashion capitals from around the world and features over 20,000 images of fashion window displays from 524 exclusive brands.
“WindowsWear is so thankful to everyone that has helped the company achieve so much in its first year,” said Jon Harari, CEO & Co-Founder of WindowsWear. “We’ve received so much positive feedback. We did not expect to accomplish so much at such a rapid rate.”
In its first year, WindowsWear.com generated over 80,000 visits from more than 32,000 unique visitors. The site has received over 575,000 page views from a growing user base on six of the seven continents. On average, visitors spend over nineteen minutes on the site per visit. WindowsWear has over 100,000 Facebook Likes and has followers and fans such as Sofia Vergara, Christian Louboutin, and Stefano Gabanna. WWD, ELLE, Glamour, Redbook, Lucky, Rue La La, The London Look, HauteTalk, and The Wall Street Jounral recognized WindowsWear as an important tool that every visual merchandiser and creative professional should use.
Glamour (Brazil) called WindowsWear “the Google Earth of store windows.”
Elle (Mexico) said, “You have to see this site.”
Since launching, WindowsWear has developed three business models: WindowsWear PRO, WindowsWear Shopping, and WindowsWear Tours.
“The three WindowsWear business models appeal to the diverse interests of our user base,” said Mike Niemtzow, President & Co-Founder of WindowsWear. “WindowsWear PRO is becoming a premier tool for the fashion industry. WindowsWear Shopping allows consumers to digitally shop the latest products from windows around the globe. And the tours showcase windows just as art is showcased in a museum.”
WindowsWear PRO was launched as a tool for professionals to further their work in the visual and design segments of the fashion industry. It provides inspiration, trend reports, analysis, and exclusive access to the world’s fashion windows and latest styles. PRO features over 20,000 analyzed windows from more than 500 exclusive brands. The site offers the most extensive overview of the global fashion industry's multi-billion dollar window and visual merchandising activities.
WindowsWear Shopping allows consumers to shop from hand-selected fashion window displays created by prominent fashion brands and stylists from around the world. The company has affiliate agreements with 40 global brands including some of the best window display designers in the world such as Bergdorf Goodman, Harrods, Macy’s, and Lord & Taylor.
WindowsWear Tours brings the company’s unique knowledge and understanding of window displays offline to New York City tour goers. Participants have the opportunity to experience and discover New York City’s best fashion window displays from an artistic and creative perspective. They also learn about the latest “must-have” fashion products.
WindowsWear also closed a friends and family round of financing. Investors include individual investors from Barclays Capital, Coach, eBay, Goldman Sachs, Nomura Securities, and others. "We appreciate the support of our investors who believe in our unique concept and results-driven team," says Mike Niemtzow.
