Swipecast is a simple, elegantly designed way for photographers, designers, stylists and retailers to book models directly via their smartphone, and it's available starting today via the iTunes App store.
The world of fashion is still ripe for disruption. According to Swipecast Founder Peter Fitzpatrick “Swipecast targets up-and-coming designers and indie magazines who need modeling talent while lowering the costs of hiring talent by 30% or more. Models get paid right away, rather than waiting 60-90 days to be paid by traditional agencies.”
