9 Fashion Companies From Shark Tank: Where Are They Now?

Shark Tank has served as the world’s quickest MBA for many couch-surfers—it’s nothing if not a crash course in what it takes to develop a product, build a brand, and pitch potential investors. And while show fans will know that all sorts enter the tank (all sorts), plenty of fashion brands have made an impression, too. Here are a look back at nine of our favorites and where they are now.

versakini-bikini
The brand: Mix Bikini
The season: Season 3
The deal: Barbara Corcoran invested $ 50,000 for a 25% stake.
What is it? A reversible mix-and-match bikini that’s constructed so the left and ride sides can be disconnected. The company bills each suit as having eight different possible combinations.
Can you buy? Yup, online and rebranded as Versakini. There is also reportedly a kiosk in a Florida mall.

Can you buy? In the brand’s online shop and at Neiman Marcus.

skinny-shirt-shark-tank-collared-shirt
The brand: Skinny Shirt
The season: Season 6
The deal: No deal
What is it? Meant to be layered or worn solo, the form-fitting top gives wearers the same peek of collar that a layered button-down would, but with a sleeker looking finish.

hip-chix-jeans-shark-tank
The brand: Hip Chixs
The season: Season 4
The deal: No deal (and a Kickstarter from this spring was also unsuccessful)
What is it? “Texas-inspired” premium jeans made of denim sateen that claims to cut way down on recovery time (how long it takes for your skinnies to go back to their original size after taking them off at the end of a day).
