Check out this awesome article about the birth of The Sartorialist!
Scott Schuman talks shop about why he created the Sartorialist, and the hurdles he overcame to go from small time blogger, to fashion influencer.
The European arm of venture capital fund DFJ Esprit has led a $5 million funding round into Lyst.
Lyst’s format sees the website congregate the inventories of ‘thousands’ of brands and stores, allowing users to follow whichever retailers and designers meet their demands. The service also allows fashion bloggers to link content to the website.
Nic Brisbourne, partner at DFJ Esprit, adds, ‘Lyst is one of the most exciting start-ups harnessing social media in e-commerce, and the company’s expansion potential is tremendous.
'Social networking is part of all aspects of life today and fashion brands are keen to gain exposure through channels such as Facebook and Pinterest, with Lyst converting this exposure into purchases.’
VC firm DFJ Esprit has $1.1 billion of funds under management and has held investments in companies including movie rental business LOVEFiLM and snack delivery service Graze.
Congrats guys! Keep it up!

TRVST is doing an all new series on our weekly favorite fashion startups!
This week: Warbey Parker: The best place to buy Designer shades, without the designer pricing!
A collaboration between four close friends, Warby Parker was conceived as an alternative to the overpriced and bland eyewear available today. Prescription eyewear simply should not cost $300+. The industry is controlled by a few large companies that have kept prices artificially high, reaping huge profits from consumers who have no other options. By circumventing traditional channels and engaging with customers directly through our website, Warby Parker is able to provide higher-quality, better-looking prescription eyewear at a fraction of the price.
We meticulously crafted our first collection of 27 limited run styles, plus one monocle, using the finest custom acetates and materials. The Warby Parker aesthetic is vintage-inspired with a contemporary twist. Every pair is custom fit with anti-reflective, polycarbonate prescription lenses.
Available exclusively through our website and showrooms, our glasses retail for $95.
And we love it!
