OUR STORY

Swipecast is a game-changing startup that enables fashion clients to book photographers, stylists, hair and makeup artists, and models directly from their desktop or their iPhone. We allow users to message each other, review each others’ portfolios, set up castings and send secure payments. Users get paid right away, rather than waiting 60-90 days to be paid by their agencies. We are revolutionizing the $60 billion+ global marketplace for fashion freelancers. Currently, we have users in 26 countries.

Swipecast's business model is reminiscent of Uber in that it uses a simple technical solution to unlock a long tail of supply and demand in a large inefficient $50 billion global marketplace. Clients that have begun using Swipecast include Tommy Hilfiger, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, Saks, Topshop, FarFetch, Gilt Groupe, Rue La La, Nordstrom, Numero Russia, Interview Magazine and Tom Ford.
