Swipecast is a game-changing startup that enables fashion clients to book models, stylists, makeup artists and photographers directly from their desktop or their iPhone, bypassing traditional agencies, saving 30% or more. 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 $50 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, Top Shop, FarFetch, Gilt Groupe, Rue La La, Nordstrom, Numero Russia, Interview Magazine and Tom Ford.
