Tagwalk: The Google of Fashion

Tagwalk, calls itself the world’s first fashion search engine. By using more than 2,800 key words, users can search by brand, season, city, trend, color, fabric or style through 128,000 pictures. Le Figaro and The Financial Times have called Tagwalk the Google of fashion. But when she started out, founder Alexandra Van Houtte, who initially tagged every single image by hand (now it is mostly done via artificial intelligence algorithms, though still given a human once-over before going live), encountered considerable skepticism, particularly from potential investors. But Carmen Busquets, the Venezuelan businesswoman and angel investor who found fame as a founding investor in Net-a-Porter, quickly understood Tagwalk’s potential. She put seed funding into the business when it was just two months old.
