How did you get started?
When I was doing my research I found that there wasn’t a one stop shop for independent streetwear brands. A lot of these brands were forced to sell through their own sites, social media or traditional events like tradeshows. We wanted to create a community were brands could showcase their gear and give the consumers access to the hottest fashions from around the world.
What is the Royalty Team all about?
We created the Royalty Team for a few reasons. The first being we wanted to create a network were people who could rep YC. We would get tons of emails from people asking to be brand ambassadors or wanting free gear, so we created the team as a way for people to be a part of the company. The second reason for the Royalty Team was to give our customers a chance to receive discounts. If you know a rep you get access to an automatic 10% off merchandise, we understand that sometimes its expensive to look good but we wanted to make sure that everyone got a chance to rock some of brands gear. Finally the last reason is I am entrepreneur and I wanted to create an opportunity for the reps to make some cash on the side. We aren’t wanting people to quit their jobs buts its a great chance to market themselves through social media and earn some gear.
