On March 20, 2013, The Working Group (TWG) hosted a buzzing event ‘An Evening With Everlane” at their 425 Adelaide Street West office in Toronto that attracted a gathering of start-ups, crowdfunders and fashion goers to hear Michael Presyman, Founder of Everlane, an on-line luxury clothing company, talk about his company’s unique Canadian launch campaign.
An Evening With Everlane (Hosted by TWG)
Everlane is a new kind of retail experience, one that exists 100% online and bypasses all middlemen to create beautiful designer goods at truly disruptive prices. To gear up for their expansion into Canada, Everlane launched an innovative crowdfunding campaign that aimed to raise $100,000 in pre-orders and credits from Canadian consumers by March 21. Join Everlane founder Michael Preysman at TWG on the final night of #CrowdFundCanada to learn about life at Everlane and find out just what went into making this successful crowdfunding campaign happen.
NCFA Canada caught up with Michael Preysman a few minutes before the event to talk about crowdfunding market validation and research, breaking new ground and brand strategy.
