Showroom is the leading marketplace for independent designer fashion in Poland. Since the start of the German platform in 2015, the brand has rapidly grown in the market. To further support this path, Burda has raised its stake to 64 percent, while the founders Michal Juda and Jasiek Stasz hold a combined 36 percent of the companies’ shares.


"We see great potential in independent fashion in Europe and in particular in Showroom and are excited to have the opportunity to invest in a strong team and business model. To further support the management’s strategy of growth and expansion into additional countries, Burda has paid in this year’s entire investment round.”
