Aileen Carville is a fervent trailblazer of the fashion-tech revolution. Drawing from over two decades worth of immersion in fashion wholesales, supply chain management and public relations, she conceived SKMMP with a blueprint catered to her own needs; a digitally-charged streamlining of the showroom format.

In three short years, the platform’s general growth (both domestic and international) has been exponential, taking on equally-innovative clients like Electronic Sheep and Natalie B Coleman for their showrooms across London and Paris (the latter accumulating around 70% of global wholesale orders during its fashion weeks).

Having had a hectic 2018, the second half of which saw Carville participate in FashionTech Week, a key Parisian event for initiative-takers in this field, this AW19 season will prove to be one of SKMMP’s most prolific.

On Sunday 17th, in the British Fashion Council’s DiscoveryLAB, Coleman will unveil a special collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund that celebrates 25 years of women’s sexual and reproductive rights – a new collection named SISTERS, characterised by mother-daughter heirlooms, hand-craft techniques and Carrickmacross Lace, all tied together by Coleman’s signature contemporary rhetoric.

With Carville automating it all behind the scenes – alongside the imminent signing of a multi-brand showroom agency – SKMMP is truly swinging from strength to strength. @skmmp
