I couldn't wait until Wednesday to post this marvellous online hidden gem. Allow me to introduce you to StyleTrek, the crowdsourced e-commerce boutique showcasing the world’s hottest independent fashion designers and the most in-demand but hard-to-find accessories like Finsk platform wedge (heart!). The site used to serve US clients only. But now it has expanded and is serving online shoppers from over 90 countries.
StyleTrek's current roster of designers are located in over 15 countries across 4 continents including Argentina, Australia, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Indonesia, Italy, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and United States.
So what's so special about StyleTrek other than shopping from hard-to-fine designers? The site also mentors driven and talented designers to reach new and existing customers online. You as a client can engage with StyleTrek designers and give them feedback at every stage of the design and production process.
StyleTrek's business model allows designers to retain a larger portion of retail sales in order to use proceeds to fund further growth of their businesses.
