always know what to wear
We have now worked on Fashionist for nearly a year starting with interviews, development, setting up servers and testing the app back and forth. After all that time and an incredible amount of positive and destructive feedback we are finally ready to enter the first step of the early-access version. Getting all of this ahead we would like to share some info and insights regarding the development and future with you here.
What is Fashionist?
Fashionist is a fashion/ social-media platform specially created for Influencers, small brands, designer, fashion models and enthusiasts to have a platform where they can present their work their outfits and clothes. What makes us so special are the multiple features enabling users to get seen, connect and the likeminded community.
We also provides people who get fresh into fashion, just want a personell daily style-guide or organize their fits with the opportunity to improve their style and always know what to wear with personalized inspiration based on the clothes they own.
Especially with the on going Covid-19 situation and lockdowns in most countries the fashion industry has slowed down and dressing up or showing people your latest styles has been hard. With Fashionist we created a new way to give fashion this social aspect of inspiring each other and connecting back.
How can I access Fashionist?
Due to the fact that we created this network for people who are into the fashion scene we want to give those people the opportunity to get their hands on the app first to set up and connect already before we will make it accessible for the broad public. If you are part of this people there are multiple options to gain access.
Why isn't it opened to the public yet?
Before we can move from the early access version to a general release we want to ensure that the product can handle more people. Among other things, this means having robust community policies and tools to ensure that people have a great experience as the user base scales up.
In addition we believe that creating a community of such amazing and creative people is not something that can happen over night so we rather want to give the people a good experience of first orientating and organizing before it gets over crowded.
Second we are a small Berlin based development team which works on different features and projects at the moment so we just can not ship it out to a massiv amount of users at that time and we want to take time to prevail a good running system and a short and fast communication with all of our community :)
So what is next?
As mentioned above we are working on multiple projects right now, one is the adaption from android because as it is for now the early-access version is IOS only.
At the same time we are working on our algorithms to ensure you an even more personnel tailored experience. Furthermore we are working on standard features as the refer a friend process and smoothen loading times.
