I have to admit that I first have been skeptical: A young entrepreneur, with a passion for fashion but no design background, trying to enter the challenging market of made-to-measure apparel that both fits and is fashionable.
I first met Sibilla Kawala on the CYP2011 event in Berlin, where she presented us her idea of limberry.de. Now, a few months later, her business is up and running.
The site limberry.de is online, and you can order custom-made blazers, skirts, dresses, and dirndls.
I got a personal tour of the site today, and I have to say I am impressed: Good configurator, nice visualization, very professional pictures, clean design. The measurement process could need some improvement, but it is functional and should work (at least for the target group of fashion savfy women).
Also the promised performance is very competitive:
- All products are "Made in Germany" - so local production, local jobs, and good quality!
- Delivery time of 2 weeks.
- No shipping cost.
- Frugal innovation, all self-financed and put together with a great dedicated team.
I wish Sibilla all the best for her new company. I am sure that we still will hear a lot from her in the MC community!
