These days mass production has become the standard. It is therefore not easy to buy unique fashion items for a reasonable price and to create your own personal style. Gusto Moda will help you with that.
Buttons, fabrics, zippers, linings, absolutely anything can be customized easily online with the specially developed software tool.
Whether you're a businesswoman, rock & roll chick, bohemian girl, casual or a glamorous woman, you can create your own style through Gusto Moda portal.
SO, WHO ARE WE?
Gusto Moda is a new online fashion portal for women. We bring high quality products in different price ranges and customers together. Gusto Moda offers an international platform for new talented designers, but also fashion brands that already have a name in the industry.
To succeed in our mission Gusto Moda partnered up with The Backbone Company. With 25 years of experience they are the ones who are able to help us realize this concept.
With our tool we can translate the customized orders clearly to our suppliers. Then the products are made to order. As a result, there is no stock required and the prices for the customer are very appealing.
MEET OUR FIRST FASHION BRANDS
Omar Munie is a famous, young and talented Dutch designer. Through his creativity and perseverance he has built a well-known name in the Dutch fashion world. His bags are perceived by more and more people, as the perfect combination of functionality and design. Omar Munie also makes beautiful case holders and iPhone covers. These will be customized to the Gusto Moda platform.
Because we understand that you want to know how products are made we want transparency in the production process of our fashion brands. We also want to make sure we offer fairtrade products only. With pictures and videos we show our customers a sneak peek behind the scenes.
Example: Behind the scenes at Omar Munie
SUUZ is a jewellery brand that truly believes in customization.
‘We believe that personal is always better. What better way to show your love then by designing a custom ring, bracelet or necklace for that special someone, or how about a personalized gift to symbolize a valued friendship’.

The Gusto Moda Journal and portable mobile charger will be exclusively made for this Kickstarter project. The other customized rewards (Ritee shirt, Zazzy 3D bracelet, SUUZ 3D ring and Omar Munie case holder/ iPhone case) will be made by our first participating fashion brands.
When our Kickstarter project succeeds, we can develop the Gusto Moda portal straight away. We strive to go live by December/January.
To celebrate our launch we will organise a VIP openings party for press, fashion bloggers and our valued backers. Depending on the number of backers the party will be given at the Ballroom of Rockstart. Which is based in the heart of Amsterdam: Herengracht 182.
The backers with a VIP tickets reward will be informed by mail.
Without your help we are not able to develop the Gusto Moda portal. Therefore we are very thankful for this opportunity to crowdfund at kickstarter! Even if you´re not able to support us financially, we would be eternally grateful if you could share the project with your friends.
We also like to thank:
- The Backbone Company: for cooperation and the financial investment. They already invested the first half of the funding. We try to raise the second half on Kickstarter.
- Sandro Algra Barradas: for the animation.
- Sonja Allachi: for the voice-over of the animation.
- Zomeya Felter: for the biography photo
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is time to market. To be the portal of choice for all women world wide within the next three years. After we have developed the portal we have to put a lot of efford in marketing and publicity to make this happen.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
