“With mobile game market valued at 120 Billion USD in 2021 with 7.7% year on year growth, it is an unmissable space for a fashion brand like mine to explore and reach new audiences. It’s been a pleasure working with Nordcurrent; I’ve enjoyed the process of transforming my designs into digital fashion items, and I’m looking forward to seeing how Pocket Styler gamers interact with and style our creations. It’s a novel experience, launching the collection as clothing and virtually within the app, allowing more people to own one of my designs than ever before.” – Founder and Creative Director David Koma 

“The lines between digital and physical fashion are blurring. Pocket Styler’s mission is to provide a platform for its players to experience high fashion, develop a sense of style, learn to make decisions, and make new friends. Introducing real fashion brands in Pocket Styler is a natural progression as the game evolves, and millions of players enthusiastically support it. It’s a pleasure to collaborate with David Koma, a fashion designer who is curious and determined to investigate the potential of mobile games as a platform for connecting with fashion fans all over the world. I believe this is just the beginning of a fantastic journey for both of our teams, as well as all of our customers and players.” – Nordcurrent co- and CEO Victoria Trofimova
