Going down this October in Las Vegas, “PoshFest” will be rolling out a plethora of rad, exclusive events, from hands-on workshops and insightful panels with fashion-savvy experts to eye-opening guest speakers and poppin’ Posh Parties. Pretty much, it’ll be the ultimate getaway for those looking to step into the fashion industry.
You can’t spend more than a few minutes on Poshmark before realizing something big is happening.
Poshmark connects users by allowing them to shop in each other’s closets anytime they wish. One local user, Kenita Calhoun, has already sold hundreds of dollars in merchandise. Not only is she a successful seller, though, she’s hooked on buying as well. She calls it her “Posh Karma” – she thinks if she buys from others, they’ll return the favor.
A year ago, Ashley Diedrich worked 12-hour shifts at a psychiatric hospital near her home in Hot Springs, Ark., making $1,700 to $2,000 a month. Today she makes as much as $3,000 a month peddling women’s clothing and accessories from home. The career change was spurred by an iPhone app called Poshmark.
Poshmark, the used-fashion mobile marketplace, says people are uploading $1 million in inventory each day, and launched an iPad app to take advantage of the growth.
