A fashion accessories brand set up by two young Scottish entrepreneurs earlier this year is looking to raise at least £15,000 by early September to progress its e-commerce platform and business model.
Nu Blvck is aiming to change the way people shop, only taking items to production on enough consumer demand. Co-founders Andrew Vincent and Becca Flory, who met through the Saltire Foundation Fellowship, curate limited edition collections of accessories exclusively for the brand, then preview each one on their platform with online customers providing real-time feedback.
“This not only makes good business sense but it also makes the business more ethical and sustainable by massively reducing waste in the supply chain,” the co-founders say.
The plan, Vincent adds, is “to build a global accessories label to rival fast fashion brands and change the way people think about their clothes and how they shop”.
