A wave of local fashion talent hits Asia as boutiques come onboard with ZALORA Marketplace.
ZALORA, Asia’s leading online fashion destination, has brought an exciting array of new Filipino fashion talent to online shoppers through the recently launched ZALORA Marketplace. With ZALORA’s combined 15 million visits per month to its sites across the region, Marketplace gives independent fashion designers and boutiques the opportunity to instantly expand their business and reach new customers online.
To celebrate the launch of Marketplace, ZALORA has gathered the hottest up-and-coming boutiques, fashion media and bloggers in one special event at 12 Monkeys in Century Mall. The ZALORA Marketplace team raffled off over P50,000 worth of prizes from select boutiques.
Jessica de Mesa, Head of Sales & Marketing for Marketplace said, “We connected with the most amazing local fashion entrepreneurs in the process of building Marketplace. As we continue to grow ZALORA Marketplace and seek out new talent, one thing we remain certain of is that Southeast Asia’s fashion industry is alive and flourishing.”
“What we are aiming to create is the biggest online fashion community in the Philippines by connecting designers and sellers with their customers via ZALORA Marketplace,” said Arianne Kader, Head of Operations for Marketplace. “It’s also an opportunity for our team to support boutiques by sharing strategies that will help them become stronger online fashion entrepreneurs.”
