With 450 established and innovative designers, Matchesfashion is one of the world’s leading luxury online retailers, engaging with its customers online, in store, via its app and at its pioneering retail and broadcasting destination, 5 Carlos Place. Matchesfashion delivers to over 176 countries and offers 24/7 advice through its fashion-concierge team MyStylist.
Following our initial investment, Matchesfashion successfully transitioned from a bricks and mortar to international omni channel retailer. Our funding enabled significant investment in operations, technology and infrastructure and fuelled international expansion, particularly in the US and Asia. We introduced former CEO Ulric Jerome and worked closely with founders Tom and Ruth Chapman to build out the senior leadership team. In 2017, Apax Partners acquired a majority stake in the business however we retain a minority shareholding and remain supportive of the company’s global growth strategy.
“Matchesfashion.com has delivered impressive and sustained high growth to become one of the world’s leading luxury online retailers.”
