Wow. I just saw Mark Cuban and Robert Herjavec invest $1.2 million for a 20% stake in a company called Red Dress Boutique. Daymond John didn’t get into it at all and clothing is his niche. Wonder why…
Hmm…just checked the website. TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR MAINTENANCE?! Maybe Daymond was the smart one in this scenario.
I love innovation and the concept of angel investing. The sharks have fought over some awesome inventions over the years but this one? I’m not convinced. And I love clothes. But I don’t really see anything unique here. In fact…I kinda see a lot of things I’d never wear in a million. Plus, if I actually WANTED to buy, I couldn’t!
I have an idea for you guys…
It’s called….wait for it….High and Dry!
I’ve got a bunch of clothes that I can’t just toss into the dryer. Some of my jeans and shirts are tight enough without being shrunk further. So I need to air dry them. But a lot of fabrics become crunchy and stiff. What to do???
Well, I came up with a new invention…a mannequin that uses electricity to gently steam dry clothing items. You dress the mannequin and can set the force of air depending on the type of fabric. Because of the way the clothing lies on the mannequin, it eliminates the need for ironing and once dry, you just transfer the item(s) from mannequin to hangar. When you’re done, you just wheel High and Dry into a closet.
