An online fashion manufacturing marketplace, Sewport has secured £650,000 investment from a venture capital fund, after launching at the end of 2017. The fully-automated marketplace seeks to ‘matchmake’ budding and established fashion designers and brands with manufacturers around the world. It currently has more than 500 manufacturers on board, as well as more than 4,000 brands.
The company connects small to medium sized fashion brands and budding designers with manufacturers at all stages of development, enabling them to bring their designs to life in an easy and cost-effective way. Boris started the company after working with luxury high fashion brands and realising there was a gap in the market for a ‘one-stop-shop’ manufacturing marketplace for both established brands and new designers.
