Style Lend is a fashion rental marketplace. An Airbnb for Fashion if you will. Style Lend helps women look amazing at any event by allowing her to borrow the perfect dress at a tenth of the retail price from another stylish woman. At the same time StyleLend allows women to monetize their dresses by lending them out to other women, without having to sell them.

LAMOU LLC was established in 2015 by architects Ann Clark and Lena Georas. Through the use of advanced printing technology, LAMOU invites the customer to engage in the design process of furniture. Customers can make personalized choices through printing on wood table-tops. The onsite toolkit builder allows anyone to upload a photograph, design, or piece of artwork and design their own personalized table which is then delivered directly to their door. The company is targeting B2C customers through its website: www.lamoudesign.com. LAMOU also sells B2B to furniture retailers and college bookstores, as well as to interior designers.
Two lines are currently available: the LAMOU Classic Line which is available on the e-commerce site and is comprised of eight proprietary collections as well as three artist collections; and The Epic Line, designed for a consumer base with more discretionary income, which is represented by the Golden Triangle in Chicago.
True Gault uses 3D imaging technology via an iPhone, to scan women’s feet and make beautiful shoes that fit. Scanning takes a few minutes and women can browse, personalize and buy all through the iPhone app from the comfort of their own homes. Shoes are handmade in Spain and delivered to the customer within 4 weeks, backed by the True Gault fit guarantee. Women no longer have to sacrifice style for fit, they can truly have it all.
By giving new value to “experienced” jackets, Wm. Williams increases consumer choice while reducing both supply chain waste and carbon output. Our factory/digital platform sells a curated selection of clean and renewed men’s and women’s blazers, bombers and jean jackets online for diverse buyers who are interested in fashion, price and sustainable mission. Our design team improves our jackets with vintage buttons, stitching and embroidery, visible repairs and other flourishes that give them new value. This for-profit social enterprise uses compelling storytelling and movement marketing, such as video, social media and peer-to- peer proselytizing, to gain market share at minimal cost. We believe in transparency, sustainability and profit.
