The Thailand-based online fashion marketplace will use funds to strengthen its brand assets and presence in vertical markets
While the Singapore-based VC invests in “extraordinary entrepreneurs and breakthrough ideas”, its core portfolio lies in oil & gas assets in Asia and the Middle East.
WearYouWant plans to use funds to strengthen its brand assets as well as secure a greater foothold in vertical markets. It is also eyeing expansion in regional markets and will continue developing its native app.
WearYouWant previously secured a US$1.5 million Series A funding in 2014 from Digital Media Partners, OPT SEA, IMJ Investment Partners and Julien Chalté, one of WearYouWant’s co-founders.
In 2015, it raised an undisclosed Series B funding from the Japan-based digital fashion marketplace, Start Today.
Founded in Thailand in 2011, WearYouWant is a fashion and beauty marketplace offering a collection of 500 international and local brands covering multiple categories including shoes, womenswear, menswear and beauty. It currently has a listing of 14,000 products.
