Membership has its privileges

Modeled after a similar business in France, the Gilt Group [] is a NYC-based online sample sale focused on premium luxury brands. Gilt launched in November 2007 with some big headliners like Zac Posen and Rachel Roy. The team behind Gilt is also marketing savvy --- the online sample sales (which last for 24 hours at a time per designer accompanied by design reels) are *only* accessible to Gilt members. With an invitation, you can sign up and gain membership to the coveted sales. I am already a devotee, having made my first purchase a beautiful piece by Alessandro Dell'Acqua; it arrived in a beautifully packaged gift box that screams "you deserve it". You can email Gilt to ask about membership or a friend who's in can refer you, but you can also click on the following links to get your membership, made possible by the NY Tech Meetup group and the Fashion-y Blog respectively: [] and [] --- scroll to the Jan. 9 entry. Don't wait too long to sign up...sales this week include: Sari Gueron, Erin Snow, and Downtown Mix.
