At some point during your daily ponderings of life and other trivial matters, I'm sure you've thought about what Shopbop would be like if it were a physical store. Right before fashion week I was invited to check out some of the new arrivals on Shopbop... in person! It was like reaching into my laptop screen and pulling out the pieces to touch and feel with my own hands. As much as I love a good e-tailer like Shopbop (free express shipping makes them hard to beat), there's nothing like seeing a piece in the flesh, trying it on and taking it home with you the same day, so it was quite satisfying to see some of the things I've been eyeing off in right front of me. The hotel suite turned showroom was organised just like website with pieces arranged on the racks according to their corresponding boutiques. Selected pieces were featured from the designer, workwear, basic essentials and one by boutiques.
Thanks to Shopbop and Torstar for giving me an insight into one of my favourite online retailers.
