In a month of fashionable May: Fashion Flipboard apps, Barneys got a makeover and 5 Start-ups making waves

Only 4 months late, I found these bad boys back in May. They’re so bad (in an MJ way not an over ripe pear way) that I wanted to share them with you anyway.

1. Personalised Fashion

Betakit have honed in on Shopmox, Stylmee and Monogram as doing it personally for the ipads.
Shopmox lets you browse all your favourite stores from one place and creates a daily boutique for you.
Stylmee is the FarmVille darling of the fashion world and is also available as an html5 web version. Users can create their own boutiques and earn rewards when others like their real life inventory. Retail Pinterest may have thrown a curve ball but they may have overcome by simply joining in the Pinterest fun.
Monogram is supposed to be truly focussed on the UX and presents users with dashboards curated by algorithms and human beings.

2. Barneys New York

Lady Lux let us know about the make over. It has all the features and functionality that we would expect social shopping sites to have but all wrapped up in soft cashmere labels: ‘Most popular’ becomes ‘Most Loved’, ‘Exclusives’ becomes ‘Exclusively Ours’ and ‘The Window’ is their blog-esq editorial content. The best bit? Lovely big product images. Just feel Barneys’ love!

3. Fashion start-ups

TNW collated these 5 beauties:
a. Osmoda
Allows up and coming luxury boutiques who don’t want to get left out of the search and buy race to have a presence by taking care of the inventory, photography, payment and logistics.
b. Lyst
Kinda like Polyvore minus the moodboard element (soon to come?:)) where the fashion community, users and brands alike come together to create, share, follow and buy from each others Lysts.
c. StylistPick is not so new, so I won’t go into it.
d. Covetique
Facilitates the selling and buying of preloved lux. They make consumers feel safe by helping to authenticate items and ensure that they are of good quality and make sellers feel safe by taking care of the transaction and logistics.
e. EDITD
Finally one for the brands, retailers and suppliers! Editd features trend science, runway reports, social monitoring, product, trend and competitor tracking tools, and visual merchandising libraries to help with those merchandising and buying decisions.
