yourbrandspace, the first B2B virtual showroom for fashion retailers to connect and view products from hundreds of brands 365 days a year is now helping over 1000 fashion wholesale buyers. The site founded by Samantha Bleasby and Louisa Valvano, which launched in December 2011, has today announced impressive user statistics following its first six months of trading.

Over 1000 fashion buyers from independents, multiples, online and department stores have made the most of this free service by signing up from the UK, Europe and as far and wide as the States, Canada and Australia.

Around 75% of the subscribed buyers are from the UK ranging from Womenswear, Menswear, Footwear & Lingerie stores including; The White Bicycle in Belfast, Jules B in Newcastle, Whites of Harrogate, Accent in Leeds, Coco de Mer in London, The Jacksons in London, Badger in Brighton, Abrahams in Kirkby Lonsdale, The Dressing Room in Tywford, Watson Hogg in Scotland, American Pie in Kingston, The Marmalade Tree in Beccles amongst many others.

Fashion buyers from online and department stores have also signed up, including asos, Amazon, Secret Sales, Hoopers, Fenwicks, Oldrids, Galeries Lafayette and more.

Louisa Valvano, Director of yourbrandspace, puts this down to a need to find new ways of operating in these challenging times. “We wanted to provide a free service for retailers that helps them in this tough climate. There is a great deal of pressure on their time and budget and it is hard to meet the constant demand to source new products and connect with existing suppliers more easily.”

This is a thought that is echoed by retailers using the virtual showroom, including Sarah Northey, Director of Naughty Knickers. “With the state of the current economic climate and with retailers struggling, in some cases closing their doors, yourbrandspace has come along at just the right time for us. With just a visit to the website, it will be a fundamental part in saving invaluable time and money, helping us to meet the constant demand of new products.”

Samantha Bleasby who co-founded yourbrandspace is delighted that so many retailers are using the service and “that many of them are requesting to stock brands through the site. It shows how responsive the market has been to the service we offer and that we can help businesses on both sides. We are gaining positive feedback from both established brands and new designers, telling us that new retailer enquiries through the site are allowing them to open up more wholesale accounts in this tough climate.”

Brands on the site seem to be enjoying the steady growth of users too and the amount of new business they are receiving through the site; Kinsie Sidalle, Sales Manager at TCA Showrooms who have brands such as Gaudi, Garcia and Klaya, has found yourbrandspace to be “a clever service that allows us to show our brands' ranges online anytime. It is useful to increase brand awareness and catch buyer’s attention! We didn't expect so many enquiries and we could not be more happy with the service provided by Louisa and Sam”.

yourbrandspace is a new revolutionary service for the fashion trade. Headquartered in London, yourbrandspace connects fashion buyers with fashion brands in this virtual showroom.
