The campaign also involved a noteworthy 58 percent female investors.

Dechert has advised Vestiaire Collective since 2019, during key moments of its development. The firm’s team for the crowdfunding campaign included Adina Mihaescu (counsel), Vianney Toulouse and Mathilde Duchamp (both Paris associates) as well as Federico Pappalardo and Carina Klaes-Staudt (both Munich partners).
