Ukrainian mission-driven digital fashion company DRESSX is in a Newsweek as one of the America’s greatest disruptor (fifty visionaries, innovators and pioneers who are transforming the world through technology)!
It’s a familiar trend to fashionistas: Buy an outfit, show it off on Instagram, then return or trash it—an often expensive and environmentally destructive habit (the fashion industry is one of the world’s biggest polluters). Shapovalova and Modenova are hoping to change that cycle, working with high-fashion brands and 3D designers to create a marketplace of digital styles that cost a fraction of what consumers would pay for physical clothing and accessories (prices typically range from around $20 to $50).
- Founded by Ukrainians Daria Shapovalova and Natalia Modenova, DRESSX has raised $2 million in a priced Seed round in 2021 co-lead by The Artemis Fund and Alpha Edison, and supported by Unlock Venturepartners, One Way Ventures, Signal Peak Ventures Flf Ventures, Startup Mavericks and strategic Angel investors from fashion, tech and blockchain industries.
- It helps DRESSX to scale its vision to make digital clothing accessible to consumers across multiple channels and multiverses.
- Since August 2020, DRESSX has become the largest digital fashion retailer and the leader in the rapidly growing industry for 3D apparel.
