#MIVReveals - Levi Young, Enclothed
Levi Young, co-founder of the men’s online clothing service - Enclothed - will be joining us on Twitter for #MIVReveals on Wednesday 9th March 2016 at 4pm.
Enclothed was launched just under two years ago and uses algorithms to assess the sartorial requirements of each customer before the in-house stylists put together a box of clothing based on the customer's size, budget and style preferences. This ‘wardrobe in a box’ is then sent to the customer - free of charge - so that he can try on the items in comfort and in his own time.
The items the customer keeps, he pays for and anything he wishes to return is collected, also free of charge. Each item returned provides the stylist with crucial data on the likes, dislikes and clothing preferences of the customer, so that each box he receives gets better.
Levi and her co-founder, Dana Zingher, have recently been selected as finalists in Forbes Magazine's first European list of '30 under 30 entrepreneurs who are changing the world'. They are the only two women leading a men’s online fashion business and are committed to driving their business forward by updating, refining and developing new technology in order to provide an agile and responsive service to each of their 7,000 customers.
Last year, Levi and Dana appeared on Dragons' Den, where all of the dragons opted to invest. They ultimately decided to fund their business via crowd funding, raising just under a £1,000,000 from 425 investors in eight days. Enclothed’s revenue has increased from £200,000 in 2014 to in excess of £100,000 a month.
Levi and Dana have a true entrepreneurial spirit. They started their business by using Dana's sitting room as their warehouse, created and configured their own website and walked the streets of London with a tape measure in order to gauge the sizing of a typical man. In just under two years they are the leading force in a fast growing phenomenon in men’s online shopping.
Ex-journalist Levi Young is the daughter of legendary singer Paul Young and former CapGemini IT consultant Dana Zingher worked and specialised in fashion before completing an MSc from Imperial College where she also picked up the Entrepreneurship Award.
