Just a few tidbits of juicy fashion news straight from the horse’s mouth:
Simon Fuller (mastermind behind American Idol and Spice Girls) has joined forces with Sojin Lee (formerly at Net a Porter) to launch a fashion style website called Fashionair. Fashionair will not sell merchandise but will focus on editorial content with lots of fashion and style tips, trends and tricks. They plan on partnering with brands and retailers to have pop up shops so readers can then purchase feature items. The site is not up yet but you can sign up to receive details by going to www.fashionair.com.
Speaking of Net a Porter, they plan to launch sometime next month a designer discount site called TheOutNet.com which will feature over 200 designer brands on sale for up to 40%-60% off. Look for great deals on designers like Christian Louboutin, Diane von Furstenberg, Chole and Oscar de la Renta, just to name drop a few. You can sign up for e-mails at www.theoutnet.com.
