E-commerce investor Clearco has announced Canada-based luxury footwear brand Tiannia Barnes as a recipient of its ClearAngel programme funding. The brand will use the $10,000 seed money to increase e-commerce and wholesale collaborations. ClearAngel is an equity-free capital option for early-stage founders and has funded over 250 companies since Feb 2021.

Featuring Italian-made and expertly crafted shoes, Tiannia Barnes collections walked runways at Paris, New York Fashion Week and beyond. The brand had recently launched an exclusive collaboration with DSW luxury brands.

“We’re excited to fund Tiannia in her mission of providing luxury footwear at an affordable price for women,” said Andrew D’Souza, CEO and co-founder, Clearco. “This latest ClearAngel funding reflects how our data-driven investing is helping to nurture the future of the fashion industry, without the barriers of traditional funding sources.”

“I vividly remember sketching shoe designs in my spare time while I was working as a global consulting firm project manager,” said Tiannia Barnes, founder of the brand. “I’ve already cleared the hurdles of building my business from the ground up. Now I’m thrilled to have ClearAngel support my next chapter as I expand into men's footwear and waist bags.”

In addition to $10,000 of flexible capital, Tiannia Barnes will also get access to a network of over 500 investors, growth teams, agencies, apps, lawyers and buyers; and data-driven advice designed to help scale and hit new revenue milestones.

ClearAngel has also funded Canadian activewear maternity brand Bomaternity.
