In eCommerce, What's New, Industry News by Accessories Staff’s online open call pits applicants in a battle for exposure

Boston—Here’s an online twist to the open see concept that Henri Bendel and other bricks and mortar retailers use to find new talent. Members-only streetwear site PLNDR announced Tuesday its latest sweeps: a chance for up-and-coming brands to submit designs to PLNDR’s “Show Off” gallery–a place where their friends and fans may vote and comment on their favorite creations. The most-voted on entries will be submitted to the buying team for a chance to be sold on the site–and “skyrocketed to fame.”

“Let the fight begin,” said PLNDR founder Leandrew Robinson, “Past brand battle contestants are now doing $500,000 in revenue on PLNDR. It’s an incredible opportunity.” Raking in more than 3 million unique visitors monthly, the visibility that PLNDR is offering these young entrepreneurs and designers is unparalleled.
