1/3/12Follow @jpruth

New York’s Wantworthy, an online fashion wish list, raised some $860,000 according to a regulatory filing. The company wants to raise about $1 million in total for the round. Wantworthy was among the graduates of the New York TechStars summer 2011 accelerator program.

Wantworthy, founded in 2010, developed a platform that lets users create lists of products they see online but may not be ready to purchase immediately. Users can share these lists with friends for feedback and return at their leisure to the original websites to buy the items. Wantworthy did not immediately disclose who participated in the funding round or how the proceeds will be used.
