End of Year Message from the Founder "it's been a rocky road!"

By Kal Di Paola on Dec 24 2016

Before we close on 2016, I would like to take a moment to thank you for your continued support and to reflect on what has been a year filled with exceptional challenges!

At points the road has been rocky and at times our future seemed far from certain but through sheer determination and the unwavering support of our team, clients and customers we pushed through and I’m pleased to be finishing the year stronger and better prepared for the future!

Over the last quarter we have innovatively restructured the business to focus on sustainable growth, longevity and profitability. We have renewed our focus on technology with our new CTO, Tim Craft, to help drive the direction of the online platform. We have closed our static Seymour Place store to drive down costs and to increase our flexibility to run regular pop ups and events in different locations. We have streamlined our consignment service to make it work on a larger scale and we have developed deeper links with our business sellers to create a healthy eco-system for fashion resale.

Many more changes and new features are planned for both the online marketplace and the offline events and as we continue to fuse digital and physical experiences we hope to open up exciting new opportunities for our business to grow.

As we look towards a promising 2017, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and encouragement and to wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the coming year.
