The company’s e-commerce website and mobile app follows Pinterest’s approach of combining image-heavy discovery and social networking with e-commerce, allowing users to upload items and bookmark products they like. The Fancy raised USD53m in July at a USD600m valuation.

The Fancy’s founder Joseph Einhorn declined to comment on the specifics of the company’s fund raising activities.
