Gilt has exploded onto the scene with many fashionista-types wired tight to their computer counting down the seconds for a particular sale to go up on the site. Now, from the people that brought us Gilt.com, comes Gilt Fuse! Gilt Fuse, which fuses fashion and affordability, stocks more contemporary brands with prices mostly falling in the $75 to $150 range.
Gilt Fuse has quickly garnered a devoted following that have embraced the site’s motto of mixing and matching — whether it’s jumpers, shorts and skirts to wear out all night, hoodies and shades to wear to brunch the next morning, or simply mixing high and low price points or designers with vintage finds.
To boot, the site recreates the same adrenaline, sample sale rush that made Gilt so popular: you have 36 hours to shop styles at prices up to 70% off retail before the sale goes down and another designer’s merch goes up.
The designers and pieces on the site are very well curated, and given the site’s popularity, they’ve usually got first dibs on the most covetable styles.
Membership is by invitation only, but if you’re a Gilt Groupe member, you’re hooked-up already, otherwise you can apply for membership at www.giltfuse.com.
