Recently the company has launched two other fashion platforms, Mr Voonik, an exclusive app for men fashion and Vilara, a market place for designers and boutiques.

Voonik had raised $500,000 in seed, $6.5 million in series A and $20 million in series B for a total of $27 million in funding.

We have the highest engagement and conversion in the fashion industry. Series A helped us in gaining scale, and now with this renewed investor confidence through Series B, we are all set to consolidate our leadership in fashion commerce. Our other teo ventures are already paying off – Mr Voonik has crossed 5000 shipments a day and Vilara is getting good traction from both high end users as well as from many designers and boutiques. This funding has happened at a very opportune moment.”
