No! Girlshop Closes!


Girlshop.com, a pioneering online fashion store based in the West Village, New York City has stopped accepting orders, and has closed. I am truly saddened by this bit of fashion news because Girlshop was one of my first jobs in the fashion business. While working there, I saw bright young, and emerging talent bring their samples in to try to get them on the website. Designers like Alexis Bittar, Nanette Lepore, and Shoshanna, all had humble beginnings with Girlshop.com. But alas WWD reports:

After almost 10 years in business, Internet pioneer Girlshop is shutting down, a victim of the popular formula it helped create.

  1. Wow, it’s kind of hard for me to imagine the Internet without Girlshop. I’ve never purchased from them, but it feels like they’ve been around forever. In Internet years, they pretty much have. I’m kind of ambivalent about it though, because as much as I liked their wide variety of designers and styles, Girlshop was ALL about selling items made from/with fur and other animal skins. I e-mailed them about it a few times (nicely requesting that they at least consider changing their policy to sell fur) but never got a request. I’ll miss them anyway…
