Chicisimo, a NYC-based social website and worldwide community for fashionistas and fashion brands, has officially launched and has raised $800k in angel funding.
The round was led by VitaminaK.
The company intends to use the funding to accelerate user adoption.
Co-founded by Gabriel Aldamiz-echevarría, Chicisimo is a website where fashionistas around the world share ideas and connect with their favorite clothing brands, upload photos of their stylish outfits, provide feedback to other users, and earn virtual awards known as “flowers.” It also provides rankings of the brands that users wear most often. Companies have the ability to see which brands and items their customers are actually wearing.
