Director of Growth at Maisonette
New York City, NY, US
<section class="utility__main__section">
<h2 class="heading--4">Who We Are</h2>
Maisonette is a curated, one-stop shopping marketplace that services a highly fragmented $300B+ children&rsquo;s goods market. Vogue Veteran&rsquo;s of a combined 20+ years, Co-founders Sylvana Durrett and Luisana Mendoza Roccia started their business after becoming frustrated when trying to shop for their kids online, finding themselves spending an exorbitant amount of time on numerous sites trying to find unique, quality products they needed for their growing children.<br /><br /><br /><br />Maisonette achieves for the kids&rsquo; market what Net-a-Porter and Farfetch did for womenswear and menswear: stock hundreds of brands, from cult and international houses to little-known labels, in one convenient location online. An estimated 90 percent of new parents are millennials, whose consumer behavior has comepletely shifted with a rapidly changing socio-econmoic demographic and social media-led culture. Maisonette combines the high-touch, local boutique shopping experience with the convenience and optionality of e-commerce. In addition to creating the first one-stop shopping destination across all children&rsquo;s product categories ( apparel, accessories, home d&eacute;cor, furniture, toys and gear) Maisonette, in a short time, has become the style authority in the children&rsquo;s space. The deep network both founders bring from their fashion and business backgrounds, along with Maisonette&rsquo;s custom content and exclusive partnerships, differentiate the brand from all others in the market. And Maisonette&rsquo;s blog, Le Scoop, which launched in June 2018, brings an editorial perspective found nowhere else in the market.</section>
