Zalando to release curated shopping service in spring 2015
Zalando, Rocket’s online shopping website, plans to start a curated shopping service, reports Textilwirtschaft, a German textile industry magazine. The service differs to competitors such as Outfittery, Modomoto, and Kisura in that it curates clothing for both male and female customers.
Zalando is currently hiring to fill the 30–40 open stylist positions, which will provide individual style advice for men and women. Zalando will offer their entire range of products, which includes over 150,000 products from 1,500 brands.
Textilwirtschaft reports that, starting in spring 2015, the service will launch initially in Germany and then expand to other European countries. A spokesperson from Zalando has advised VentureVillage that the company is not ready to share further information about the project, whose name is not yet decided on.
