I am happy to announce that one of LGiLab's portfolio company, StyleShake has officially open its doors.
StyleShake enables you to create and order design dresses and receive them at home a few days later (available in the UK for now). Call it User generated fashion if you want. Mike Butcher has covered the launch and i do not have more to add to it.
StyleShake's team has done a lot within a very short period of time and given the level of complexity behind what you see it could be considered as a good beginning.
Fashion is a big piece of cake. There is a very clear trend of products created or assembled by the users in all kinds of verticals (furniture, consumer electronics, design, ..). Not only in fashion. Cafepress and Zazzle have proven successful in the past with simple tshirts (and other products). StyleShake is stepping up the stairs and wanta to give you the possibility to do that with higher end type of cloths.
This will be an exciting period to follow up. Even if you do not plan to buy a dress you can start to play with the studio here. Yes i know, I am not very good at designing a dress and i am definitely not a target user for the service, but it took me a few clicks to do that one below.
