farfetch.com: More Than a Marketplace
LONDON, March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Making purchases online is not just about the product but about the "total shopping experience", say farfetch.com -
Boutique fashion retailer, farfetch.com, is a place where style enthusiasts can not only make designer purchases online but share and participate in news, blogs, competitions and more. Fashion lovers come to the site to gain inspiration, engage with others and easily find the brands they adore.
The appeal, for many, is instant access to high-end clothing and accessories ranging from Antonio Marras dresses to VBH bags and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. Curated shopping that is categorised and instantly searchable gives visitors opportunities to discover up-and-coming designers that other retailers do not stock.
Bringing together collections of more than 100 of Europe and North America's most influential designer boutiques as well as smaller boutiques spanning numerous countries, farfetch.com provides a complete shopping experience that covers a wide breadth of designers. Visitors come to the site not just to fill their shopping bags but to discover new talent from around the world; browsing popular categories from women's designer dresses to men's designer coats.
In addition, the website hosts dynamic, magazine-style content with the latest news from the world of fashion, supported by social media. farfetch.com on Facebook has more than 80,000 likes* and nearly 6,000 followers* on Twitter, and a new board at farfetch.com on Pinterest is an opportunity for millions of fashion-forward designers, photographers, stylists and scrap-bookers to pin and share pictures of the latest fashions.
Paul Brine, spokesperson for farfetch.com, comments, "If customers are looking to connect with new designers, as well as the established brands they love, they come to us. It's more than a marketplace; it's a community where people come to get a rounded shopping experience."
