Luevo is a Toronto-based company that offers a unique take on letting consumers shop the runway. Inspired by crowdfunding, Luevo solves a major problem that the fashion industry faces by letting people pre-order their favorite runway looks, which in turn gives up-and-coming designers the funds that they need to advance production.
For the Spring/Summer 2015 season, Luevo partnered with fashion weeks across the United States, including San Diego, Portland Tampa Bay and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Heart Arts Fashion. If you happen to spot a look that you're in love with, Luevo lets you reserve it ahead of time. You'll only pay when an item goes into production and to make the process even simpler, garments that are hot off the runway will be delivered right to your doorstep after they've been fabricated.
