Egyptian fashion-focused social network, Slickr has added an e-commerce layer to its social networking platform, Disrupt-Africa reports.

Slickr was founded in January 2015 as a social shopping network that allows users to share their fashion taste and shopping experience with friends. The new marketplace functionality will allow designers, and fashion brands to create their own free digital storefronts.

“We are really excited about the market.” Maria Munoz, co-founder of Slickr says, “the opportunities for success and growth in e-commerce and fashion e-commerce are endless if done right.”

Slickr earlier in the year raised an undisclosed amount from angel investors, and hope to raise a further USD1.5 million by 2016.
