Fashion 2.0: A Quick Look at eTailing
Fashion Fox has a brief overview of the growth of online retailing in the recent months/years, pointing out the fairly obvious (but still important) fact that “eTailing” is now an indispensable part of the fashion industry:
Yoox.com is a virtual boutique that saw over 3 million visitors per month in 2007; that number is staggering. What’s more, they’ve recently added to their offerring by partnering up with a new high-end designer menswear store, who is also available, only online; thecorner.com keeps its virtual shelves filled with Marc Jacobs and Viktor & Rolf. And even with all the fashion sites popping up, the most popular, Net-a-Porter, continues to see growth and amazing success; due in part to their ever increasing partnerships that they forge.
