Wintour would wince; you can shop high fashion whilst relaxing in your pyjamas. Avenue 32 is a high fashion, online department store, with dozens of celebrated designers showing their latest collections.
Roberta Benteler founded the site in 2011, and already it's made a name for itself as the place to click to for luxury fashion. Avenue 32 was voted the second best online fashion store by Vogue UK, high praise indeed.
The website isn't simply a shop either, each designer curates their own department. There are videos, behind-the-scenes features and an insight into the thought behind the various collections. They also make available their Little Black Book.
If you've been following New York Fashion Week, you can compliment your wardrobe with pieces chosen from Avenue 32 in the same vein as the collections seen on the run way, thanks to a current feature put together especially for the site.
If you already know your stuff, then you'll want to jump straight into the shopping, and visit a globe s worth of talented designers, without leaving home. Up and coming folks like Thakoon Addition, Pinky Laing, Carolina Bucci and Oliver Peoples have stores nestling side by side on the virtual shopping avenue.
I adore high fashion, as it often is more quirky than high street, and I dress as weirdly as my personality. Unfortunately, I do not have the budget for high fashion, but now and then I do invest in one pricier item. Having one or two good quality, designer pieces means you can look smart by pairing them with high street items. For example having a leather handbag, can set off any outfit. I enjoyed having a browse round Avenue 32 and choosing my favourite items to share with you.
