There’s a seemingly endless stream of new and exciting fashion releases constantly hitting the market rivaling for your attention. And frankly, it’s extremely hard to keep tabs on all the latest drops. There are two types of shoppers in the world: those who enjoy the thrill of hunting down the best fashion gems themselves as they endlessly go through each and every option their local department store has to offer, and those who prefer a hassle-free personalized shopping experience tailored to their own individual needs, style and, obviously, budget.
The worst part about being a member of the latter group? Having to scout the whole wide web to come across your new, go-to fashion finds. And, if you are not an experienced personal shopper, chances are that you have absolutely no clue where to actually find them.
That’s where Qatch, the newly-founded personal stylist app comes in to save the day – and right now, you can finally start shopping on it.

Qatch is a Female-Owned Business
Qatch was founded by two sisters, Nicole Phillips and Raquel Phillips after years of having to deal with the frustrating experience of having to go from website to website to see a variety of brands and the overwhelming feeling of thousands of products to choose from. Nicole, the CEO, holds a Masters of Law (LL.M.) in Fashion Law from Fordham Law School and carries in-depth knowledge of how technology was used to improve operations for fashion brands and retailers due to her experience working in-house for several retail clients.
Raquel, the COO, graduated with her Masters in Accounting from Babson College before working in audit at PwC. Her background in business, entrepreneurship, and accounting helped her gained valuable connections with entrepreneurs and mentors within the Babson community since the day she founded a student organization.
Fueled by their love for easy and personalized shopping, they wanted to create a new way to communicate what shoppers wanted-and that’s how Qatch was born.
