BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
Knowing that the fashion world is difficult to break into, Sam Sisakhti had an idea: to create a platform for independent designers to show off and sell their lines of unique clothing. His website, UsTrendy, started out as a website for designers to share their portfolios and reap rewards, but graduated to an online marketplace which is now more successful than ever. With an impressive 14,000 plus designers, the spotlight is definitely on Sisakhti and his brainchild now, which is featured in places like The Boston Herald and only continues to grow.
The Herald mentions that the original idea for the website, which involved designers creating portfolios to show off their work and visitors voting on the best pieces in order to help them get rewards and push forward, didn't last very long. It was a short amount of time before prospective buyers began to complain that they wish there was an option to make a purchase, and thus, the online indie fashion marketplace was born.
What's really impressive is that his goal to help independent designers break into the fashion scene was accomplished in the fullest sense of the word. Some designers have raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales using UsTrendy alone – a feat that would be a far-off dream for some designers who don't work under a label.
According to the Boston Herald, rewards are still being given to the top designers. The clothing designer who procures the most sales through the end of the year gets their own place on the runway at London's Fashion Week this coming February. The site provides designers with all the tools they need for success, from tips for selling to a system for easily implementing descriptions of products. Designers are more than eager to join in on the competition, and Sisakhti can't wait to see who comes out on top.
UsTrendy flaunts hundreds of thousands of independently produced garments and a system that allows fashion-loving consumers to partake in a style democracy, deciding what is "in" and "out" for themselves. It's the perfect place to buy and sell for fashion aficionados and designers alike.
