Luevo, the solution for independent designers, launches live at Style Fashion Week in Los Angeles, as fashion takes over the runway. Recently featured in Vogue Italia, this Toronto-based company’s mission is to immediately generate sales for emerging designers before going into production by receiving orders directly from consumers. Lack of funds is often the main reason why talented designers are unable to continue in their dream career, so Luevo created their crowdfunding platform as the answer.
Designers showing during Style Fashion Week will be the first to take orders on the Luevo platform. Guests attending the shows will be able to reserve their favorite items as they see them fresh off the runway, and the designer has a set number of days to collect the required orders before going into production. Luevo helps designers get closer to their audience and forecast demand, while allowing fashion consumers the chance to change the future of fashion.
Luevo has been recognized for its influence, “the starting point for Luevo centers on supporting the local potential of the textile and clothing industry, as well as recovering a sense of craftsmanship” Vogue Italia. Luevo promotes a sustainable model that combats waste as designers only produce what is required to fulfill orders. With a focus on ethical and fair practices, Luevo strives to bring the most promising talent from the emerging and independent fashion scene to the foreground.
