GLOSSYBOX is profitable

Glossy Box

Beauty-discovery subscription platform GLOSSYBOX ended 2014 profitably with a strong seven-digit figure (in Euro). In fact, the beauty box company that does business in more than 10 countries (including Germany, the UK and France) was profitable every single month of the year. The company’s customer base simultaneously grew by more than 25 percent, while marketing costs were reduced by 33 percent.


For GLOSSYBOX, the most important key to success has been a focus on customer satisfaction, which, on average, increased from 68 percent in 2013 to well over 80 percent in 2014, with a maximum increase of 95 percent. Clearly, transformations within the company, which began in late 2013 and were completed in early 2014, have been far-reaching. GLOSSYBOX is now less centralized, its efficiency and processes improved, and a stronger focus on its 10 core countries has been established.

“The entire GLOSSYBOX team is excited about the great corporate development,” said GLOSSYBOX founder and CEO Charles von Abercron. “We’ve worked very hard for this success and had to make some difficult, yet necessary changes. However, it appears to have paid off as we have opened up opportunities by becoming profitable. We will use these opportunities to work on making our vision – to become the number one source for beauty discoveries worldwide- a reality even sooner.”

MAYA Swimwear Releases 2015 Collection “ MOORISH TALE ”

Maya Moorish

Maya Swimwear founder and designer Carolina Dinardi just released her 2015 collection entitled “Moorish Tale” to the public.

After receiving rave reviews following the preview of the collection during the Mercedes-Benz Miami Fashion Swim Week at the Cosmo Cabana shows over the summer, Maya’s “Moorish Tale” collection is now available to order.

According to Dinardi, the “Moorish Tale” collection was inspired by the magnificence and mysticism of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, whose details — the lights, shapes and colors of this majestic castle fortress — were dwarfed only by the sheer perfection of the symmetry in its mosaics. Add the beauty of a dancer’s arabesque, the delicacy of a single wild rose from the Sultan’s gardens and the light fading into night off the leaves of the Alameda trees and you have Maya’s 2015 Swimwear Collection.


Included in the collection are some of the following prints:

  • Mosaic Arabesque Bleu and Rose: A delightful play of symmetries, this design combines the mosaic’s glance to the infinite through its smallest part with the rhythmic interlacing of flowing lines of a ballet dancer’s arabesque.
  • Alcazar: Inspired by the lights and shadows cast on the walls of the Alcazar during the Andulsian sunset.
  • Aquarelle:  Slowly aged over time, the Aquarelle captures the blues, reds and golden yellows of mosaics that fade away through time into elegant purples and majestic greens.
  • Chimera Skin: Inspired by the Arabian Nights, the Chimera evokes the essences of mischief, valor, ribaldry and romance.
  • Alameda Night:  A bold statement on the beauty and simplicity of the light reflecting on the leaves of the Alameda trees fading into the night.
  • Granada: The sultry colors of Granada combine with decorative interlacing at the ends of this bikini to remind us of the light of the torches, reflecting off the Alhambra fortress walls.
  • Handcraft Bind: Reminiscent of the 13th Century Arabic weavers, the handcraft bind is as soft and comfortable as it is elaborately defined.

Sweat Tailor Announces

Sweat Tailor

Modern-Cut Pants made with Custom French Terry Blend–Designed in NYC, Crafted in California.

NEW YORK — More often than not, men’s jeans or dress pants are not versatile or comfortable enough to wear from morning to evening and beyond. Twelve hours in the office, a bucket of golf balls at the driving range, meeting clients at a restaurant downtown, then a light jog to catch the train home, Sweat Tailor has created an “everywear” solution for today’s young, professional work-horse with its tailored jeans made from custom French Terry blend.  By addressing the hectic schedules and changing trends of this key demographic, Sweat Tailor has created a staple wardrobe item that allows wearers to combine the comfort of sweatpants with the fit and style of a five-pocket tailored pair of pants suitable for everyday wear.

“Sweat Tailor was born out of our own frustration”, says Aaron Hoffman and Benjy Smith, co-founders of Sweat Tailor. “As consumers, were were sick of being pigeonholed into categories of pants. If you want active pants go here, if you want formal pants go there. So, we tirelessly worked to create a pant that you could wear everyday, everywhere and in every style. Any jeans or pants out there that claimed to be comfortable meant that you had tosacrifice style and fit. This is where we differ.”

Fit and FinishSweat Tailor_Social Media Posts_R2_photos logos-05

Sweat Tailor has created a simple solution to problems that come with wearing a pair of leisure pants throughout the day. For example, with a traditional pair of exercise pants or sweatpants the inseam is uniform, not taking height, waist size or weight into account.

For professionals on the move, Sweat Tailor’s initial offerings will come in two cuts including skinny and regular fit, each allowing you to choose from a sizing chart with waist and inseam sizes comparable to traditional dress pants or denim jeans. What makes every single pair stand out is the fifth cellphone pocket. They also offer all of the high-quality hardware and features you would expect from a pristine, tailored pair of jeans or pants, including reinforced belt loops, woven denim pocketing, half-lined back pockets, a locker loop label, custom-molded gunmetal buttons and rivets, and a semi-auto nickel zipper.

Made in the USA

The Sweat Tailor pants will be completely handcrafted in the U.S. with a full-scale production scheduled to be completed by October 2014. The first line of production will be focused on menswear with an ultimate goal of a women and children’s line for Spring 2015. To finance the initial production and manufacturing, Sweat Tailor is using the crowdfunding platformKickstarter. Retail value for a pair will run for approximately $98, while early bird pricing and free shipping are available to Kickstarter contributors beginning April 22, 2014.

About Sweat Tailor, LLC

Founded in 2013 by old college friends Aaron Hoffman & Benjy Smith, Sweat Tailor was established with one simple goal: to create the ultimate pair of everyday pants that are stylish, comfortable and built to be worn from day’s start to end, no matter what life throws at you.

About the Founders

Aaron and Benjy became close friends in college in 2001 but it wasn’t until 2013 when they got together and discussed a shared distaste for the selection of comfortable pant options on the market for men. Traditionally, the only options were either nylon workout pants or old-school sweatpants, neither of which could be worn with any pride. That idea quickly turned into a business endeavor and Sweat Tailor was born. Hoffman and Smith spent the past year working full-time jobs while spending nights and weekends creating Sweat Tailor.
