We grilled the CEO, Thomas Weikop, of SpaceRebel.com about the new designer’s haven. SpaceRebel brings together designers and store-owners from around the world, so designers can rent space with ease from stores across Europe. SpaceRebel is all about sharing space and making the retail process easier for designers everywhere. This online fashion showroom has upped the stakes in the design world and created a philanthropic opportunity for change. Read on to find out more about the ethics behind the process.
Where did the concept for SpaceRebel.com come from?
The concept for SpaceRebel evolved out of our work with mytrnd.com, which is a large global showroom for more than 3.000 of the best fashion brands worldwide. We have had many talks with fashion brands across the globe and the need for a direct contact with buyers, which in this case most often are store owners, became more and more explicit. We talked about stretching the basic concept of mytrnd but realised that a new platform with the contact as the main focus would be the best solution.
