Fashioning a new industry

EDITD aren’t the only fashion startup leaping ahead in the UK.

Clothing fit visualiser Metail raised £2.6 million in December, and fashion brand ecommerce platform Silkfred crowdfunded £120,000 in October.

Back in August, Fashion Technologist Chloé Watts wrote for Tech City News on how co-working is disrupting the fashion industry.

Retail wagging

And retail in general is leading the way. Britain became the world’s leading e-commerce exporter last month, and retail dominated the second wave of Future Fifty companies revealed in December.

StreetHub are one startup driving this forward with their click and collect system for independent shops.
