Multi-Platform Fashion Marketplace Offers a Simple Way to Discover, Buy and Sell Fashion – Anytime and Anywhere
Threadflip, the leading social marketplace for discovering, buying and selling fashion, today announces the launch of its new mobile app and the close of a $6.5M Series-A round.

Threadflip provides a simple and streamlined way to discover, buy and sell fashion online. Inspired by the reality that there comes a day when even a beloved fashion favorite is better served spicing up someone else’s closet, Threadflip enables users to easily recoup some of their investment and make room for new finds. In turn, Threadflip shoppers enjoy access to style inspiration and designer apparel (from Paul Smith to Prada, to vintage to Vuitton and everything in between) at a fraction of the original price. Threadflip’s multi-platform offering, seamless end-to-end shipping and White Glove Service, have removed all barriers to buying and selling online.
Threadflip’s new iPhone app enables anywhere, anytime shopping and provides a super simple way to create stylish, sophisticated images for your Threadflip closet.
