Every so often, we’ll highlight fashion industry news that we are excited about. A lot is happening in the next week, so we thought we’d aggregate some of the most noteworthy headlines.
Rue La La Seattle Launched Yesterday
If you’ve heard of of Gilt, Haute Look, Swirl by Daily Candy, and so forth, you know what to expect from Rue La La. Designer items are available for up to 70% off, which makes these labels available to the masses. What distinguishes Rue La La from the rest is that it also has features like Groupon, Living Social, Deal Pop, etc., where it gives discounts on local “luxury” experiences. For example, besides sales for designers like Betsy Johnson, it also has deals for the Seattle Ballet, luxury vacation packages, and Seattle chocolate companies. Started in Boston, Seattle is only it’s second city-specific deal locator. If you’re not from these two cities, you can still check out the designer sales and vacations.
