Coutorture has started a new feature called City Guides. They are creating the ultimate shopping guide with more information, maps, pictures and potentially customer reviews for stores everywhere.
Here is more info:
These are similar in concept to the shopping guides you've probablyseen at Superfuture.com, but with a few twists. We're adding a lot more information about the stores (from photos to categories), makingthings super-searchable and cross-indexed (the same channels we use on Coutorture), using high-fidelity, GMO-free Google Maps, and makingeverything bloggable (of course).
Also, we're going to start tyingblog reviews that pass through Coutorture onto the map, preserving your opinions for the ages :)
Our goal is to create the largest, most usable, and public directory of stores in cities across the globe.
It's probably pretty attainable,especially with your help and feedback.We'd also love to start compiling a directory of shops useful to those of you on the production end of things - fabric stores, sewing machinerepair, etc.
So let the coutorture gang know what are the hidden shopping gems in your town. Do not be shy about posting about a store in say...Cleveland(my neck of the woods). It is about all the cities. Not just the lovely and exciting ones.
Perfume junkies....lets make sure all our haunts are in the list.
Question of the day: What is your favorite store? What makes it so dear to your heart?
Mine: My heart races when I enter the Barneys beauty floor. I get giddy when I see the perfume bottles, Tyler and the Frederic Malle perfume chambers.
