Start Up Talk: I Need A Cary Agos
For the second instalment of our Start-Up Talk series on Stylescoop, Stylecab Founder, Charlotte Felix O’Conor explores the difficulties in finding the right business partners for her as she continues on her journey developing Capsule, a members-only online style platform.
Sitting at home, it's tune out time; the three musketeers are in bed and the ad man is out discussing the finer details of the property portfolios of super bankers (or is that super tankers--they seem to accumulate assets at such a fast pace, I get confused). Anyway, I'm watching my current favourite show, The Good Wife Season 5, on iTunes, engrossed and, suddenly, it struck me, I need a Cary Agos!
Now, don't get me wrong: finding the right partners for Stylecab has been a constant action point on the To-Do List, but the question I hadn’t answered was, who was this person? What skills did they need that would complement our core set? I think we’ve definitely got the fashion/style angle safely covered, but maybe this extended beyond their skill-set to their profile. Life is all about yin-yang and I enjoy the play-off of contrasts; just as in fashion, mixing one high-street piece providing a flavour of the current season’s trends together with a luxury brand that speaks to tailoring, fit and subtle elegance.
