LyAnn Chhay is the Senior Vice President of Community at Poshmark, the incredibly popular social commerce marketplace that has raised over $150 million. And LyAnn was there from the beginning. She joined Poshmark as its first employee in 2011, partnering with its four co-founders—Manish Chandra, Tracy Sun, Gautam Golwala, Chetan Pungaliya —to help create Poshmark’s vibrant and powerful community of over five million Seller Stylists and 40 million registered users. Talk about impressive.
If you spent any time on Instagram last year (which, duh, of course you did), you know Cardi B’s Fashion Nova collection sold out in hours and the Duchess broke royal protocol left and right. So it only makes sense that the biggest Poshmark fashion influencers of 2018 were Cardi B and Meghan Markle, according to Poshmark’s Social Commerce Report.
Awards were given in seven categories. The 2018 recipients are: Manish Chandra, Poshmark (Disruptor).
Poshmark, an app which looks and feels like Instagram, allows you to buy and sell clothing just like you would on eBay. The app has an enthusiastic community of shoppers and sellers who “follow” each other, comment on photos, and star their favorite items.
I guess you could say that an ugly poncho changed my life. When one of my online purchases arrived at my doorstep, I totally hated it and decided to try my luck selling it on Poshmark. Fast-forward to today, and I am running a six-figure fashion business from my phone.
