Hill said: “The landscape of luxury is changing, our experience has proven that combining relatable inspiration with a convenient client first service has answered the needs of the new gen luxury shopper. This new round of investment will drive further expansion of our model through our new e-commerce platform and live shopping events on social media.

The funding round forms part of a dual-raising strategy that sees Threads give customers a unique opportunity to invest in the company through a crowdfunding campaign with Crowdcube, due to go live later this month.
