Riya Collective

Riya Collective is creating the first global platform to consign and rent South Asian clothing online. On one side of the marketplace, Riya is providing the first large-scale option to sell used South Asian designer clothing (e.g. the RealReal) and on the other they are giving guests of South Asian weddings the first option to rent these clothes online (e.g. Rent the Runway), saving them time and money. Riya Collective is starting in the U.S. with ambitions to expand to the UK and Canada within the next year, and eventually to India. Riya is led by two talented founders from MIT and Harvard, and with experience at Bain & Co., Funding Circle, HomeJoy and Citigroup.
