The Material Wrld Mission
To get this global closet sharing party started! So really, we want to enable fashion enthusiasts to unveil their stylish closets to the "wrld" and make cash out of it. Users can showcase their style, discover and follow cool closets they love, and easily sell items they no longer wear to our community.
We're a curated online fashion community for shoppable closets. We just launched our beautiful beta site this Fall, and in our first month and a half, we've had great traction, orders from around the "wrld," and a warm welcome from fashion and press. Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and WWD have featured us as "Fashion's New eBay."
We are Jie and Rie, two good friends from Harvard Business School (originally from China and Japan), with deep fashion eCommerce experience from Coach, Ralph Lauren, and J.Crew.
Jie leads product and operations, and Rie leads marketing and community. We love to shop, dance, and hustle to disrupt fashion resale on a global scale.
We've been lucky to work with very talented freelance designers and developers to bring our product to life. And now, we're seeking a lead developer to take our product to the next level.
