  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) August 17, 2011 - On August 10th, NYC local start-up Mobile Marketplace sponsored an art exhibit showcasing local NYC artist at the Chelsea Hotel. The exhibit was presented by "The Art of Fashion", founded by John McMullen in association with Herbert Fox Productions. John developed "The Art Of Fashion" to give artists and fashion designers a leg up in the industry and a powerful voice to be seen and heard before the creative industry by showcasing their art or fashion designs at high-end "Pop-Up" Art and Fashion shows held at top red carpet venues around New York City. "It was an excellent way for us to reach the community of artists. Business for them is creating great artwork. We can help them showcase and sale their work using our app" said Duy Huynh, CEO and Co-Founder of Mobile Marketplace. provides a platform for businesses to reach local consumers. Every business can benefit from a simple and efficient way to attract new clients. With, a business owner can advertise his/her products or services and watch its enterprise grow with a snap of a picture phone. With an iPhone or Android mobile a business owner can instantly share his/her goods and/or specialty with nearby buyers in their community.
    During the event Mobile Marketplace demoed the app to artist and guests. Chris Prandy, one of the artist at the event did not hesitate to sign up and use the app. "This is just my second show ever, I've --more--
    only been painting for about a year and I need all the exposure I can get" he said. More than 40 artists and guest singed up and joined Chris as members of the community. Throughout the night phrases like "This is so simple", "I really like this" and "It is genius" were continuously thrown around when referring to the app.

    The idea for comes from the need to have a fast, simple, and instant way for local businesses to reach out to their local customers, which has not been fully addressed in the market. Right now when local businesses want to sell goods or services, they have to go through either the local newspaper (which is costly and slow) or an e-commerce site like eBay or Craigslist (which is a hassle because you need your computer to post).

    The night concluded with a bikini fashion show by designer Carmen Carriker. The designs used in the fashion show are from her "Bikini Under the Bridge" line. Carmen added some flavor to her show by having the models walk the runway with slick designed t-shirts. Mobile Marketplace is located in Midtown Manhattan with more than 20 employees and continues to grow fast. It was founded by a group of friends, including Duy Huynh, Ha Tran, Tien Nguyen, and Bao Huynh. launched its beta at TechCrunch Disrupt late May 2011, and officially launched early July 2011.
