Garmentier was founded in 2018 by professional stylist and retail veteran Lisa Bubes, who recognized the potential for personal shoppers to change the retail world through an entirely new direct sales model.
The Garmentier digital platform revolutionizes the relationship between retailers, brands and stylists and removes the barriers that have prevented a seamless and strong commercial partnership between them and the brands they help support.
Commissions, selecting and sending clothing from stores directly to clients without any need for upfront payments and custom tailoring are just some of the features of this platform.
In my interview today, Lisa and I talk about the industry challenges and how Garmentier was built to remove them in an innovative and intuitive way.
Currently available to US image professionals only, they do have plans to open the functionality and membership to other countries in 2021.

MaryLiz is a firm believer in the power of the stylist to change the retail landscape, AND in the power of the ‘relationship -based entrepreneur’, which was the inspiration behind Goodpix; a digital tool allowing you to create shoppable content in a one-to-many format.
Shoppable boards, collections, affiliate commissions and client micro-sites are all available for a monthly subscription fee to scale your styling or image business.

Anika Walker is an Australian personal stylist who has re-imagined the way she engages with women, regardless of age, size & budget, by launching a monthly subscription service called ‘Style Squad’.
Style Squad subscribers receive an email that contains two educational videos each month, including one using innovative shoppable video platform ShopShare.TV.
The focus is on everyday, smart casual looks teaching subscribers how to style them up & down and how to master the art of mixing and matching.
The move to a regional area prompted Anika’s transition to online styling services, but it was her experience styling thousands of women for major retailers and shopping centres Australia-wide that sparked her journey towards offering a personal styling experience any woman could access.
