What We Believe
Personal stylists and Silicon Valley venture capitalists don't mix.
Since our founding, we've seen over a dozen investment-backed tech startups misunderstand the work image professionals do and fail. We are proud to be a 100% founder-owned and profitable platform — not beholden to outside venture capitalists. This has allowed Hue & Stripe the autonomy to remain true to our core values and mission — and we are happy to say we're growing faster than ever!
Our founding team is deeply committed to ethical business operations and we greatly value the personal relationships we have in our community and industry. We take pride in Hue & Stripe's reputation for integrity, authenticity, and friendliness.
The Power ofExperienced
Experienced personal stylists and image consultants wield an incredible ability to transform their client's look.
But beyond this, they help clients to find new confidence, triumph over insecurities, and more effectively convey what they wish with their appearance — whether that's more polish at the office, finding a new "normal" after weight changes, stunning the dating world, or even just learning ways to make the "outside" better reflect a client's identity on the "inside."
We know image professionals have great power to change lives for the better.
in the Image Industry
Software must not replace the highly personal, high-touch experience provided by personal stylists. A one-on-one relationship with an experienced stylist can change a client's life and provide far more than a list of product recommendations.
Technology, instead, can power and augment the high level of service that professionals provide, enabling new touchpoints with clients, opening new revenue streams, and minimizing the time spent in back-office operations.
Hue & Stripe works to stay abreast of emerging technologies to equip our members with state-of-the-art solutions and tools to take advantage of new opportunities as they arise.
Hue & Stripe's story begins in 2011 when our founder and Engineering Lead Jeremy, while preparing for his upcoming wedding, saw his bride-to-be struggling to find bridesmaid dresses in her colors: slate blue and peach. Having seven bridesmaids surely complicated the task, but as Jeremy sat down to help he quickly realized what thousands of bridal parties have experienced before: that there was no efficient way to shop by specific hues online. From that experience, the idea for a color-exact apparel search engine was born.
While finishing up a Masters Degree in Information Systems, Jeremy set about creating a system to extract more precise hues from dress product photos - and make them searchable. He enlisted Craig Nordstrom, a recent graduate from the Marriott School of Management (and the Best Man at Jeremy's wedding), to help with the effort and in Spring 2013 they launched "The Dress Spot" to the public.
As The Dress Spot began to circulate online, the team was approached by image consultants enquiring whether the service could be expanded various ways.
Before you could blink, the team had been befriended by several veteran image professionals and Jeremy and Craig soon gained a deep respect for the breadth of expertise they possessed and the lasting impact they had on their clients. But the team also realized how desperately the image industry needed better tools to modernize.
By Fall 2014, with feedback and help from image consultants across North America, the system that initially powered The Dress Spot had been greatly expanded and transformed into what is today called Hue & Stripe.
Hue & Stripe launched into private beta that Fall to a trusted group of image consultants and has been innovating, evolving, and expanding ever since!
