We have reached the middle of Summer trade shows, which means that the first half of the year has already flown by! It has been an extremely productive 6 months at fashionTrade HQ, as we constantly focus on delivering the smart and simple wholesale trading solution for brands and retailers. Since January, we have released many new features that help our partners trade more efficiently. We cannot possibly list them all here so we decided to focus on the most important ones. Learn more about them, then schedule your demo with our Business Development Team.

An advanced digital showroom
Every brand is unique so when you are building your fashionTrade showroom we give you the possibility to design one from scratch or to use a preset template. In both cases, you can publish your lookbook(s), collection(s) and video(s). Retailers can easily buy from your showroom and get inspired by your latest marketing material.
Retailer groups and prepacks
Do you work with prepacks? Or do you offer different prices, discounts or terms and conditions to your retailers? Our platform now allows you to sell prepacks (in addition to regular units) and to identify and segment your various retailer groups. We understand the flexibility and personalisation features that you need to run your business most effectively!
We want fashionTrade to be the smartest and simplest buying solution for retailers. Since January we have been working hard on improving the overall experience for our buyers. In addition to a general rebranding of the platform, we have been working to deliver the below features.
A new styles page
Our styles page is where all the magic happens for buyers. We rebranded it in order to give you the best buying experience possible and you can now see all the relevant information about a style in an easy overview. You can also:
- instantly add products to your cart by clicking the + sign without disturbing your browsing,
- select variants directly on the style page by clicking on the chart icon,
- click on a style to see the product detail page.
Product detail pages
Our Product detail page gives you all the information you need to buy a product (recommended retail and wholesale price, pictures, variants, etc.). You can add quantities directly from the table and also access your ‘recently viewed products’ to easily navigate from one product to another.
Our light-box feature also allows you to look at the product material and design more closely.
Download your order in just a few clicks
Buyers can download their orders as PDF or CSV files, via their order confirmation email or in their order overview on fashionTrade. This allows them to quickly upload the orders placed on fashionTrade into their own system, for an even more efficient experience.
