A new era of fashion is emerging

The fashion industry’s legacy business model is facing new technologies, manufacturing processes, modes of consumption, and demand for sustainability, all at once. The sweeping changes create challenges across the entire fashion ecosystem.

Meanwhile, social media, direct-to-consumer business models, and long-tail marketing empower startup designers. But many lack the business expertise to scale. 

Aesthetic Ventures harnesses these opportunities to custom-design companies for the future of fashion. We create businesses that help reshape the supply-chain, collaborating with impactful entrepreneurs to design, launch, nurture, and scale companies.

Aesthetic Ventures is the first of its kind specifically focused on the fashion industry. We’re creating a platform with an analytical approach based in research and domain expertise specific to the industry.

A new era of fashion is emerging. We're helping to launch it.

We're building and leading local and global networks, connecting some of the industry's most innovative change agents.
