Our Fashion Passion
As the world began to grapple with the covid 19 pandemic and all business came to a screeching halt Mr Troiano began to collaborate with a retired IT professional Henry Hall and a web designer located in the Philippines Jenelyn Impis. They envisioned a social network where the members could make some extra money. After careful consideration, they decided to focus on the fashion niche as there seemed to be a largely untapped segment of the market with a worldwide audience that the concept would appeal to. After roughly 12 months they began testing a working prototype for the site and optimized it to run smoothly. AS beta test was run in April of 2021 and by late June true enrollment began and in late July the app was also introduced. Marketing of the network began in earnest in August 2021 and really started gaining traction in September where growth topped 300% in the first two weeks.
