Pop-Ups Monday: Monday August 27
We’re all about mobile these days—and so is the rest of the world! So this Monday morning, we’re bringing three fabulous fashion tech apps to your attention. If you think your eyes are always glued to your phone now, just wait until you’ve downloaded these apps!
Discover, explore, and enjoy the last Monday of August!
The idea behind Reqoop is simply genius. Featured in WWD, NBC New York, and Fashionista, this app targets stylish shoppers all around the globe. As you shop at your favorite stores, take photos of the best items and share them. The Reqoop Network of Stores includes top brands and cherished boutiques but photos from any store can be uploaded. You can win exclusive rewards by simply taking great photos or even just visiting your favorite stores! The app strives to draw shoppers away from their computers and back into stores to experience the traditional shopping experience once again.
Interested in selling some of those clothes that just sit in the back of your closet? Avoid the hassle of eBay and the stress of bidding wars. Poshmark makes it so incredibly easy! Just snap a photo of the item, filter it Instagram-style, and you now have a cover shot that’ll help you sell the piece! If you’re looking to shop, there are countless beautiful listings to check out. Poshmark shopping parties allow you to shop, sell, and have fun with fashion lovers like you!
Pose caught our eye because of one of its latest investors, Rachel Zoe. This outfit-sharing app takes your beloved “selfies” to the next level. Compatible with iPhone and Androids, Pose encourages users to upload outfit ensembles daily with specific tags specifying the category and brand. The app allows your OOTD (outfit of the day) to be shared on Facebook, Twitter, and your personal blog in a more organized, professional manner. Featured in Mashable, TechCrunch, and Glamour, it’s too hard to resist!

Discover, explore, and enjoy! – and register for our event if you haven’t already!
1. Fashion GPS
Fashion GPS was created to save design houses and PR firms from spending incredible amounts of time managing samples, creating and sending virtual look books, and generating press reports. The system manages the entire process and creates public relations and advertising reports for your company. The system is specifically designed for the fashion world and “works behind the scenes like a virtual employee.” The GPS Radar Network keeps you connected to fashion brands and relevant PR agencies. Fashion GPS clients include Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Fendi, Gucci, and Chanel.
We can’t wait to hear from Jennifer Jann, Director of Marketing, tomorrow!
The goal of this startup program is to provide women entrepreneurs with direction, feedback, and connections. WIM is a three-month mentorship-driven accelerator program providing companies with funding, office space, product development and design support, mobile-marketing promotions, and access to mentors, funders, and advisors.
The founder and managing director of WIM, Kelly Hoey, will be joining us tomorrow evening as one of our panelists!
3. Gilt Groupe
If you’re an online shopper, you’ve definitely heard of Gilt. This shopping experience provides a members-only, insider’s access chance for people to experience top designers at up to 60% off. The site has expanded from clothing to include home goods, exclusive local services, and travel packages. Gilt Groupe allows men, women, and children to make their dream designer purchases with the click of a mouse, at a fraction of the cost. We’re so excited to have Vice President of Mobile for Gilt Groupe, Yon Feldman, joining us tomorrow at our meet-up!
