Since there is a big population of smart phone / SNS users in China, and the infrastructure was already prepared, in addition to the feedback we have received from launching our services in other Chinese regions (Taiwan and Hong Kong), we have decided to launch WEAR services in mainland China. WEAR users in China can enjoy the same contents just as our Japanese users; the Coordinating recipe function, the My closet function, the SNS function and the recommend function.

In addition to the WEAR of launch in China, more than 40 celebrities known for their sense of style, as well as their strong influence on the fashion industry, such as angelababy (4,980 thousand followers on weibo(*2)) and Dada chan (213 thousand followers on weibo(*2)) will join WEAR as WEARISTAs (*1).

(*1)Celebrities known for their sense of fashion and influence in the fashion industry, such as models, designers, bloggers who are official trend setters / fashion leaders on WEAR are called WEARISTAs.

(*2) weibo is China’s largest SNS with over 4 million users. The service is provided for free, Japanese is available as well.

WEAR users can cross-search stylings / outfits posted from over 26 countries and communities, therefore WEAR is a global outlet where users can express their fashion to other users all over the world.
