The Hunt‘ is an online community dedicated to helping users track down fashion items they’ve seen online but don’t know how to find.  Aiming to bridge the gap between popular social content on platforms such as Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest – and often unlisted brand or retail information – the community-driven start-up is open to anyone.

Users can start their own hunt by listing a website or linking their profile with their Instagram, Tumblr or Pinterest account and selecting their converted item.  Additional description and budget details can be set to guide the community with the search.

Members can browse and follow other searched-for products in the community feed, and help solve hunts by listing exact or similar online retail information directly to the image.

A promising referral driver of eCommerce, The Hunt has already gained huge traction with the fashion community prior to its official launch – reportedly generating more than 65,000 active members, with an average 24-minutes spent on site, per day.
