Farfetch, the London-based provider of an online retail platform, has priced its IPO at $20 per share, raising $885 million in the process. The listing gives the company a valuation of $5.8 billion and comes after Farfetch raised its price range earlier this week, to between $17 and $19 per share from between $15 and $17.

The float comes hot on the heels of Eventbrite‘s IPO, which has raised $230 million at $23 per share. This again comes after the online ticketing company raised its target price from the original $19 to $21, to $21 to $23. Eventbrite began trading on the NYSE on Thursday.
