2017: A year of growth for #fTtheFamily

2017 is almost over! As we head towards a well-deserved holiday week, we can say that this year has been rich in events and emotions for the fashionTrade team! Of course, we’ve worked hard on building the best online marketplace for fashion wholesale, but we have also welcomed many new faces to the team (the Class of 2017!) as well as an industry-leader as our newest investor. A lot of happy moments were celebrated together this year! Want the brief update? Take a look at the best moments from 2017 below. 

#fTtheFamily keeps on growing

This year, we doubled the size of the fashionTrade team (from 15 to 30), with new employees joining our marketing, sales, design and development teams almost every month. And as the cherry on top of the cake, we even welcomed Genevieve Kunst as our new CEO, in October. The fashionTrade team now brings together 13 nationalities from 5 continents – making our office a lively (and entertaining) little world. Whether we come from Egypt, Romania, Chile or Australia, we all feel right at home in our office located in the heart of wonderful Amsterdam.

Joining forces with Zalando 

June 27th, 2017 was a big day for the team as we announced that our owner, Anders Holch Povlsen of BESTSELLER UNITED had joined forces with Zalando to share ownership and enable the further growth of fashionTrade! This strategic partnership has already brought us a lot of positive impacts and we look forward to continue learning and growing with the help of both BESTSELLER and Zalando.

It was, of course, the perfect occasion for our Marketing team to throw a party on the rooftop of our headquarters at TQ. With 150 international guests from the fashion and start-up industries, we certainly did just that – celebrate!



Celebrating #fTtheFamily

At fashionTrade, we work hard on building the best product for our customers. But we also take the time to celebrate good news and get to know each other a little better out of the office. This is why we organised several events this year! As fashion professionals, we always take the time to strike a pose. Discover our best 2017 group shots below.
