WEDNESDAY FASHION NEWS: GUEST POST AIDEEN
A LESSON IN ONLINE RETAILING
Irish fashionistas have been crying out for it, and Blanaid Hennessy is delivering. Many of you already know her from Blanaid.com and her Kilkenny shop and online store Shutterbug…
Now comes Folkster – a hipster/hippy hybrid for the friendly, floaty fashion lover!”
Think vintage without the €€€ price tag, think Jeffrey Campbell without having to pony up for the taxman when it arrives , and think a visual feast for the senses.
Blanaid has creativity coming out her ears. This new venture, sees her along with her team, stocking gorgeous pieces at a fantastic price-point and still retaining the thing that sets her apart – creating a friendly on-line shopping experience that encourages you to play.
“I have always pictured the Folkster customer as someone who enjoys exploring her personal taste, really appreciates other people’s style and just has fun with the whole fashion thing. I tried to choose sixteen designs that I think reflect that playful and somewhat alternative approach to dressing up!”
Anyway, and I’m trying not to gush here, but I just get so overwhelmed by how some people can be so darn fabulous. This is the woman who is picking out clothes and sourcing them for your benefit. Look at her. LOOK AT HER!
