Pimp'up ! The new woman shoe's accesory

CHF 25,612

                                  !!!! Last minute offer !!!!

One lovely December morning, I woke up with an idea to buy a pair of thigh boots. That's right, yes! I live in Geneva and the winters here are very cold !  

Now I'm addressing to you ladies: Have you ever tried to buy a pair of thigh boots ? After many and many trying, same observation: 

  • No choice
  • Heels too high or none at all
  • Too tight around the calves or impossible to slip on, 
  • It is vulgair, expensive

Personnaly measuring 1m81, the thigh boots just turn into knee boots.

Our mission is to create a shoe's accessory that will fit to any woman's shoes and transform it into a beautiful pair of thigh boots. All this, with trendy collections, adapting to all budgets, all body shapes and above all, to each woman. 

In addition to the trendy collections, a web app will also be developed to allow customers to create their own accessories if their minds were to turn to creativity. 

Yes ! Pimp'up deeply believes that every woman is unique.

Pimp'up expresses and believes in true values: A free and independent woman, strong and elegant.

We have designed the collection that we would like to wear every day. This means that depending on the range, each woman will be able to find the accessory that suits her. Or create it!

A Vegan range has even been designed, to be able to offer the same products to everyone, while respecting everyone's ethics.

Size : 3 types of size: S, M, L and the custom-made.

Because each woman deserves a special attention, our labels are composed of a secret pocket where a personalized word, signed by my hand, has been slipped, especially for her.  Because wearing Pimp'up is much more than dressing your leg or wanting to be trendy. Wearing a pair of Pimp'up is joining a community. A community of strong and independant women capable of moving mountains! You will never be alone again! And if you are a little down; this word will remind you of it. Because it will have been written especially for you and only for you.

A web application will allow customers to create their own accessories thanks to a big database of materials, things to customize. Simple and effective, it has never been easier to create for express your personality. 

Our accessory is manufactured in a small but very famous Italian workshop of 20 craftsmen, in the region of Marches. Area known for shoe making. 

This world-renowned workshop also produces parts for major international brands. Our materials are finely selected and/or directly manufactured on site while respecting an eco-responsible production line.

 We visit and study all our suppliers, to make sure that they correspond to our values. Because we sincerely believe that the use of the highest quality materials is the basis of an excellent accessory. We also have 100% Vegan materials, which will allow us to offer the same products to everyone, while respecting everyone's ethics.

We believe in uncompromising quality. By eliminating intermediaries, not using resellers and by talking directly with you, we are able to offer an accessory of impeccable quality, at a price that can be adapted to all budgets, depending on the range. All accessories are finely inspected by us before each shipment.

From the beginning, our objective was to offer a beautiful stylish feminine shoe's accessory, which fits all shoes, but above all, at a great price. The fact is that we don't have to buy the entire shoe, to adapt to any shoe allows us to do this. Indeed, the accessory adapts and re-invent your pair. The fact that we are also in direct contact with our customers without intermediaries or resellers also allows us to offer you a quality product, without costing you a fortune.

Whether you go to work in a skirt or trousers suit, jeans or even a little black dress, the accessory is as versatile as it is functional. A dinner with your beloved? We remove the Pimp'up to let us see your legs. Reinvent your look as simply as a hello!

Choosing your color: We will send you a survey after the campaign ends where you can make your color selections. 

Reaching $50,000 in funding will allow us to create the entire collection but above all to make all the images, videos and whatever we need to create and develop our e-commerce site.

Reaching $100,000 in funding will allow us to create and develop our web application. Because yes, Pimp'up will also be fully customizable. This will allow our customers to create their own unique accessory, just as they are eveyday.

Reaching $150,000 in funding will allow us to make a big global launch, with wild fashion shows organized in 10 cities around the world. Scandalous, pioneering, innovative! 

If I reach 150,000, I will post prototype drawings for celebrities (which for me are the spirit of Pimp'up) saying that every 5000 more I make the prototypes and send them to the star and that it will then be on sale in September. 5000 also for packaging

Fashion designer and always on the lookout for the latest trends, I love being feminine and stylish even in the freezing cold. What could be better than a beautiful pair of boots with a sweater dress for a trendy look? I've never been able to find a pair that can be beautiful, suitable, not vulgar, and without being horribly expensive!

I created Pimp'up to solve this problem. With the fit and waterproofness of a shoe, Pimp'up adapts, keeps you warm and guarantees you a confident look, with a wide variety of choices to represent you. To each her own Pimp'up!

Our mission is to dress your leg, dust off the shoe's world and allow you to reinvent your pairs without having to buy new ones.

Over the past year, we have produced 8 prototypes. At each step of the process, we learned valuable information. We have refined, redesigned and are now delighted to use what we have learned to really launch Pimp'up with the help of the Kickstarter community.

  • The society is deposite in switzerland
  •  The brand is registered in France and Switzerland and will expand internationally

We spend a lot of time in our workshops, working with the staff and preparing our accessories to perfection. We have established a partnership with a workshop that manufactures items for some of the world's leading brands. We are only an hour away by plane, and when the accessories are finished and ready to go, we will pick them up directly.

The possibilities of evolution for Pimp'up are endless! We could think about creating collections of hats, gloves, dresses and even shoes for our accessories in the future! Pimp'up will soon become the essential that every woman will have in her dressing room just like the little black dress or the eternal little pencil skirt.

We expect the Pimp'up accessory to be ready for shipment, for Kickstarter orders, in November of this year. For the realization of the collection and the launch of the e-commerce site, we plan a launch in the beginning of december. We coordinated our different partners; from the workshop to the different suppliers, from photographers to web designers, to make this possible.

Risks and challenges

We have total confidence in our manufacturing facilities.
They have shown reliability and thoroughness throughout the process of developing the various prototypes and ranges.
However, like any other artisanal manufacturing process, there are risks regarding timing.
A machine can break, or a fabric supplier can fall behind, or any of the variants that unfortunately are not in our hands.

However, we are in constant communication with our various suppliers, and our workshop being nearby, we have a look at the entire manufacturing process.
And if any delays occur, we make sure to notify our customers and remedy them as soon as possible.

We have already produced 8 prototypes, so we are not at our first try.
Each accessory is carefully inspected and checked before leaving the workshops. We pay real attention to our product, as if we were the ones who were going to wear it.
We guarantee uncompromising high quality and will do our utmost to maintain it.
