73. LUX FIX
Luxury discounted brands showcased all in one place for time poor professionals
Founders: Alice Hastings-Bass and Rebecca Glenapp
Founded: June 2011
Last year, LUX FIX made our list as a promising start-up with an exciting proposition – discounted, hand-picked luxury brands for busy young professionals unable to spend hours browsing for the latest trends. The last 12 months have seen the young company begin to deliver on its promise, already organically growing its network to 20,000 members and working with more than 120 designer partners, including leading British names such as Hussein Chalayan, Clements Ribiero and Lara Bohinc. The company’s impressive rise to prominence in less than two years has attracted glowing endorsement from the likes of the Times, Wired Magazine and the Independent, setting it well on its way to becoming an industry recognised brand. LUX FIX has also garnered a growing following in the USA – 25% of its members are American and the company recently appeared on US TV channel CNBC as ‘one of the country’s most exciting start-ups’ with a further expression of support from actress Gwyneth Paltrow. The next 12 months will see LUX FIX continue to grow and focus on expanding its membership base internationally.
