Online boutique announces funding round for disruptive showcase featuring innovative fashion designers

New York, NY – June 21, 2018 —Sulimon Balogun, Founder & CEO of Gallery La La announces immediate funding opportunity on INDIEGOGO. As a fashion industry disruptor, Sulimon supports independent designers and artists through an innovative online eCommerce platform. Gallery La La fastidiously selects unique, creative and revolutionary designers to be featured on the digital platform. Sulimon is excited to bring his vision to life and states, “Through extensive effort in digital marketing, we intend to elevate these designers and artists onto a global platform to magnify awareness of their talent and boost their careers.”

Through a strategic partnership with SmartSites, an industry leader in digital marketing, Gallery La La will offer a one-of-a-kind platform for artists, designers and consumers, creating an immersive luxury fashion experience. “At SmartSites, we design award-winning websites with the user experience at the forefront.  Gallery La La’s new project is exciting for us, due to the stunning design, quality of the pieces being sold and meticulous attention to detail. The site pops off the screen and will provide an incredibly fast and streamlined experience for buyers and sellers alike.” says Ryan Brew, SmartSites Account Manager. Ryan continues, “I must also say, Sulimon is one of the most passionate people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with and his attention to detail and keen eye for quality make him the ideal person to be running Gallery La La.”

Through dedication, leadership and foresight, Sulimon has always been a visionary in the high-fashion space. In 2007, he transformed a Brooklyn restaurant’s basement into an exhibition space, naming it Gallery La La; there he managed and sold work by local visual artists. After the restaurant closed, Sulimon continued to use the name for popup events, which represented an exclusive group of fashion designers as well as visual artists. By 2013, Sulimon had acquired a storefront building in New York’s SoHo neighborhood; to create a boutique gallery. After recognizing the industry shift to digital experiences and online shopping, Sulimon closed his SoHo store and is putting all of his focus into the next explosive chapter for Gallery La La.

The primary difference between us Gallery La La and renowned platforms such as Etsy (1.4 million sellers) and Saatchi Art (65,000 sellers), is that Gallery La La meticulously selects who they represent and which pieces within each artist’s collection to feature. The process is incredibly thoughtful, with in-person quality control checks to be sure that the products selected are truly extraordinary.

Gallery La La competitors have no control over who and what is sold on their websites. By playing to the numbers game, they are able to charge a smaller commission than Gallery La La, but they do not enable everyone on their platforms to earn a respectable commission from their creations. Their sellers still have to invest in promoting themselves to see even the most modest revenue. Gallery La La is creating a mutually-beneficial experience for the artists and the consumers.

Sulimon elaborates, “We intend on keeping our community of designers and artists small so that we can intensely focus our efforts on providing exquisite items to our customers. We will continuously invest in promoting each featured design through digital and physical marketing to an engaged global market. Our number one goal is to provide the opportunity for our designers and artists to make a living from their creations.”

Sulimon invites you to join the Gallery La La revolution and contribute to their digital funding effort on INDIEGOGO. Through your partnership and support, designers and artists will have the opportunity to showcase their incredible creations to a global audience, and luxury fashion enthusiasts will have the chance to purchase one-of-a-kind pieces.
