Posted on

This story first appeared on Modern Retail, Glossy’s sister publication covering retail’s transformation.

It can be hard to track Amazon’s fashion empire.

The company sells both first-party and third-party apparel products across the main Amazon site, its Luxury Stores offshoot, and Amazon-owned Zappos. Although the exact figures depend on who is measuring, most sources agree that Amazon is the dominant force in the e-commerce apparel space, owning something akin to 50% of the online apparel market. Yet its reputation among fashion brands is more mixed, and the proliferation of knockoffs on the platform has scared off high-profile fashion partners

How Will Kate Middleton’s Fashion Change When She Becomes Queen Catherine?

Posted on

When Kate Middleton’s engagement to Prince William was announced on November 16, 2010, she wore a dramatic sapphire blue dress from the brand Issa. Within 24 hours, the dress sold out online, and “the Kate effect” was born.
