But this month The International Herald Tribune has teamed up with a seasoned online fashion retailing expoert to launch its own online store to sell products to its readers.
The IHT – the global edition of The New York Times – has partnered with Couturelab.com to launch a luxury goods store IHTGiftStore.com.
Couturelab.com was created by Carmen Busquets, a co-founder and cornerstone investor in net-a-porter.com. She planned Couturelab.com as a “laboratory of ideas” and a brand focused on supporting craftsmanship and heritage. Today, Couturelab.com is an e-commerce gift site which sells rare products from around the world.
