A&C: You know that frustrated feeling you get when you’re looking for the perfect dress for the Christmas party, you’ve trawled through all of the shops but you still can’t find it anywhere? Well the fashion gods have worked their magic and the problem has been solved! The Hunt app was launched by CEO Tim Weingarten in America back in 2013, and has accumulated over 3 million registered users after being advertised as “The Cure for Outfit Envy” with US ambassadors Ashton Kutcher and Tyra Banks. It’s now been brought to the UK (yipee!) with it’s very own UK ambassador Rosie Fortescue, whom we all know and love from Made In Chelsea and her own blog At Fashion Forte (click here to see her blog and check out her ah-mazing wardrobe).
The Hunt is a ‘community-powered’ app which you can log into, post a photo of what you’re looking for, and let the community of the app help you find the solution to your problem. It homes in on the support we give each other in the fashion world, and it turns trawling through the internet for hours to find your prefect outfit into an easy, fun and social thing to do. And you can even set specific parameters, like price, colour and style to narrow down your search. And it’s free to download on ios7/8! What more could you want?
We were lucky enough to be invited to the the launch party, held at Disco in the heart of Soho – a very swish underground club with a ’70’s Manhattan’ theme (a wall of roller skates and a ceiling full of disco balls…say whaaat?!). The cocktails were sublime, the atmosphere was exciting and the company was fantastic. We had the chance to catch up with other bloggers, like Candy from Owl Girl, and meet new people too like the gorgeous Maria from Chio Photography. We had an amazing chat with Tim, the CEO of The Hunt, who gave us the low down on the inspiration behind the app and the stats that have already been achieved by the community. The best thing about The Hunt is that as it’s community grows, the better it will get – with more and more fashion enthusiasts helping each other track down their most wanted items.
Here’s a few photo’s we managed to get on the night.
(us looking fairly presentable on the train)
We even got the chance to meet Rosie too, who looked as beautiful as ever in a feminine take on the classic tuxedo.
If you’re as excited about this brand new fashion app as we are, you can download it from the App Store here, and don’t worry – if you’re not on the Apple bandwagon, it will be available on android within the next few weeks. They also have a blog too, so click here to keep up to date with their latest posts! We’ve already got the app downloaded and can’t wait to share our finds with you!
We would like to say a huge thank you to the girls at 10PR for the invite. We had such an amazing time!! #twolittleowlsblog

(sorry about the quality of our photo’s guys – we forgot our camera so had to make do with our iPhones!)
A little treat for you guys who made it all the way to the end of the post…photo’s of us looking less presentable on the way home!
