Founded by three friends on a mission, Asadra is a fashion retailer transforming the industry by bringing ethical and unique clothing to the mainstream. The online platform allows users who love style but don’t want to contribute to the fast fashion market to browse thousands of smaller, high-quality fashion brands. “We want you to know the story behind your clothes and be proud of what you wear,” says Andrew Cameron, co-founder of the e-commerce platform.
Still in the initial stages of carefully curating their product line, Asadra was looking for unique and well-crafted brands to add to their roster.
“It is also our goal to get [a few] fashion influencers and use them to promote our designer products out there [on social media]. When they share a product, ASADRA will give them 5% of any new sales.” Andrew continues. Developing relationships with influencers who are also working to establish themselves helps create a mutually beneficial small business relationship. It’s a win-win situation designed to elevate both brands’ reputation. But how are you supposed to find them? The internet is a big place.
