Business Story

Why this business was started

I took a leap of faith, quit my tech job, and invested a little bit of my own savings into Luxe Cartel’s first batch of inventory. I was always interested in fashion – and Luxe Cartel was a way to pursue that interest, while also finding fulfillment as a business woman. Today, the swimwear industry is extremely saturated – and demand for a tightly curated, online shopping experience is not being met. There is currently no clear retail leader in this space – and unlike other multi-label competitors, we have the strong brand identity needed to appeal to a luxury buyer.

The reason of selling this business

A few reasons – 1. Another career opportunity has presented itself. 2. Additional capital and needed for growth. 3. Motherhood, and time commitment

What's involved in running this business

This business was founded: over 9 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 30 hours per week
