Rebelle (operated by StyleRemains GmbH), a Hamburg, Germany-based online platform for second-hand designer fashion, raised a “medium single digit million Euro” in funding.
Backers included new investors HCS Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH and unnamed media and logistics managers as well as existing shareholders, such as Hanse Ventures and High-Tech Gruenderfonds.
The company intends to use the funds to further develop its business in the German-speaking market and expand abroad.
Launched in August 2013 by Managing Directors Cécile Gaulke and Max Schönemann and Hamburg-based start-up incubator Hanse Ventures, Rebelle allows individuals and operators to sell used luxury and high-end fashion and accessories on the website. The company, which assesses the authenticity and quality of all the products, currently offers over 7,000 items and 600 brands.
