Established in 2016 in New York City by an uncle and niece, duo Dominique Martinelli and Ray Shields, Gear Relapse offers women trendy fashion apparel at affordable prices. With the growing demand for inexpensive but highly fashionable women’s clothing, Gear Relapse is a fast growing online retail platform for women’s fashion. The online shop offers a comprehensive database for affordable clothes and dresses.
Dominique Martinelli is the CEO of the company. She loves trendy, designer items that come at reasonable prices. The challenges she faced in having to wait for long periods of time for affordable designer clothing and great deals inspired her to open up a retail store that can provide designer clothing at much lower prices for women. Her degree in Business Administration and background in clothing retail helped in handling all business concerns from marketing to product upload and logistics.
Ray Shields’ strong background in finance and real estate makes him ideal as the company’s CFO. Also a fashion enthusiast, he helped raise the capital and other resources to jumpstart the business.
Gear Relapse believes in quality without compromising the price range including the designer brands it carries. Aiming to build a much stronger online presence, the company employs various marketing ideas to make people more aware of the opportunity they have in purchasing designer clothing at affordable prices. In 2016, Gear Relapse launched a pop-up shop on West Broadway in New York City for three days.
