A Website Dressed to Impress with Black Edge Style


Here at Platform81, we work closely with our clients to achieve their desired goal so when we were contacted by owner of local business Black Edge Style, with the prospect of making their visions for a e-commerce website become a reality, it was a project we didn’t shy away from.

Aimed at the professional woman, the website needed to showcase their bespoke and personal services in a sleek, sophisticated manner whilst appearing stylish and confident; exactly what client Laura wanted to instil in her customers.

Laura, Black Edge Style Owner explained, “When starting my journey to find a web designer I spoke to a lot of people. From the outset, I had a clear vision of what I wanted to achieve and after my initial consultation with Platform81, I knew they were the team I wanted to work with. They listened, they understood, and they delivered.”

With the target audience also short on time, we developed the client’s idea of a ‘wishlist’ to allow users to save desired products, without the need for checking out instantly. To also emphasise the personal service that Black Edge Style wanted to offer we incorporated a ‘Personal Profile’ section with a members area, where customers would be invited to login and access exclusive ranges to shop before the rest of the public.

Head of Web at Platform81 David said; “When a client comes to us with a strong vision of what they want, it’s always an exciting one for the team to ensure we achieve what they had in mind.  Alongside this we also always want to offer new ideas and solutions to the process and the client was open to hearing our recommendations. The vision and final design was unique and had a flair to it that made it different to any traditional eCommerce website we’ve produced before.”

Laura continued; “Nothing was ever too much trouble and the team gave good advice, spending time to get it perfect. I love the finished product of the site; it meets all my requests and just looks fantastic.”
