Fashion Commerce is still up for grabs

E-Commerce keeps growing and growing, and so do all the categories, like computers, media, electronics etc. There are major players like Amazon or ebay sominating their respective markets. But in fashion, both are comparably weak and besides Zalando, market share sits there waiting to be grabbed. Fashion marketplace Farfetch raised 86 million at a 1 billion (!) valuation, and LVMH invests in aggregator Lyst in an overall 40mn round.
