Start-London the successful womenswear & men's designer fashion boutique based in Shoreditch has just launched its very 'own' in-house Affiliate Programme.

Described by Grazia as having hippest fashion collections for miles, co-owner Philip Start believes that the store's popular hand-picked ranges combined with running the programme in-house creates a unique Affiliate proposition in the luxury retail sector. "I am interested in rewarding the people who drive our sales to ensure it is them that receive our generous 10% commission rather than an agency" he commented.

Successful affiliate applicants will receive a 10% commission on direct referral sales as well as the opportunity to qualify for various sales and performance related bonuses. Once enrolled, affiliates will be granted access to exclusive offers, text links, banners, widgets to allow them to showcase Start's hand-picked pieces on their site.

About Start

Situated in the heart of Shoreditch, Start is a labour of love for owners Philip Start (former founder of Woodhouse) and Brix Smith-Start. Originally a stand-alone boutique on Rivington Street, the Start name has rapidly expanded since opening in 2002. It now comprises a separate menswear and womenswear store, an online boutique and most recently, a men’s tailoring emporium offering a selection of off the peg suiting, shirts and ties as well as a made to measure service. With highly personalised attention and a host of prestigious designer labels, Start is the ultimate shopping experience in East London.

The Start philosophy is simple. We provide what has been described in the press as “the best edited” collection of clothing, shoes and accessories in London along with premium customer service, all within an eclectic environment. We like to think that shopping at Start, both online and offline, isn’t just about the latest 'it' bag or the must-have shoes – it’s about the entire experience.
