New York, NY (CNS) – The fashion industry has an awesome new website available to fashion professionals that combines the power of business to business commerce sites with social networking favorites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter that allows designers, buyers, models, editors and other professionals to connect and do business.
Zeeportal.com was founded by Rita Kahn and offers features such as searchable member profiles, designer catalogs, fashion news, expert advice, industry events, online chats, exchange rates, stock quotes, classified ads and online order taking. Designers can also choose which buyers have access to their profiles and catalogs for security purposes.
“While trade shows and industry events are important, they don’t take place every day,” said Kahn, “And, they can be very expensive for many young designers, students and startups to attend. With Zeeportal.com, fashion industry professionals can make connections, get the latest news and conduct business 24/7 in a fun, free virtual environment that’s tailor-made for our industry.”
“When people go to trade shows, it’s easy for forget what collections they have visited,” continued Kahn. “Often, buyers lose business cards and misplace catalogs. Zeeportal.com is a good way to keep products on the top of buyers’ minds, follow up, and to do business after the show, which is when most buyers place orders.”
“Zeeportal.com is truly a one-stop business solution for fashion industry insiders,” said Kahn. “Whether you’re a student, a veteran designer, a model, a buyer or a fashion magazine editor, Zeeportal.com captures the whole industry in one convenient and powerful destination.
