Ritesh Attur – Zivogue – Kae Capital
Ritesh Attur seen pitching Zivogue.com –an e-commerce platform for Fashion designers, Fashion bloggers and Fashion users where the Designers create the products, the bloggers help in showcasing them with their reach and the users gets the latest fashion updates from the designers and bloggers they follow.
“When we started out with Zivogue, we just wanted a portal for Designer wear but as we started reaching out to designers and bloggers we realized that there was great support required for Designers not just in terms of online presence but other support functions like manufacturing, procuring fabric etc. Thousands of fashion designers pass out of Design colleges but only a few 100 manage to get to practice their degree as a profession just because they have no support, so that’s a huge number of dresses not being made,” says Ritesh. “This was one of the reasons we decided to make Zivogue a larger platform where the designers will get all the support they need to launch their designs online.”
