FASHION FUNDING: Fashion GPS, arbiter of digital fashion week invites, said it raised $4 million in Series A funding. Eddie Mullon, founder and chief executive officer, declined to reveal participants in the round, save for IronFire Capital in Asia. “We’re looking to open in Milan and Hong Kong, and expand the global presence,” Mullon said, adding that the company already has offices in New York, London, Paris and Sydney. As the company readies a move into Italy, Fashion GPS will sponsor the Decoded Pitti conference in Milan later this month. The seven-year-old firm raised a $1.3 million seed round in 2011 from Ashton Kutcher, Guy Oseary, Ronald Lauder and Len Blavatnik.
