2014: LOOKBOOK.nu provides brands and professionals with an instantaneous stream of style inspiration generated by over 4.4 million people every month.
LOOKBOOK.nu was created by Yuri Lee and her boyfriend, Andy Chen. He works on most of the application development while Yuri does the rest. This includes coding, design, community moderation, and marketing/ collaboration efforts.

They knew each other in college and moved to San Francisco after graduating. Yuri and her boyfriend were discussing websites, which led to the topic of fashion, especially street fashion.

They launched LOOKBOOK.nu together from their small apartment and after a month it started to take off.

They both decided to quit their jobs and work on the site full time.

2010: Founder Yuri Lee named #37 in Refinery29's Fashion 50 - The Most Influential People In Fashion
