The newly raised capital will be used to build cutting-edge features on the app, specifically making the app more ‘intelligent’ so users have a highly personalised high-end fashion experience.

The team aims to build an app that becomes users’ handy guide for all style and fashion discoveries, discussions and decisions.

The app also provides services like giving fashion inspiration, feedback and ideas from experts in the field. The platform is aiming to engage a million users by the end of this year.

Prior to this, in February 2016, Delhi-based startup Styledotme, a social networking fashion app, raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Indian Angel Network. Other players in this space include Voonik, Purplle, Roposo, etc.
