Fab Flash: Girlshop Goes Out of Business

Girlshop.com will reportedly close its virtual doors after nearly a decade in business. The shop's literal doors at the store in the Meatpacking District will follow suit on Sunday.

This is sad news for fashionistas who came to love the boutique whose claim to fame was featuring clothing and accessories by small, emerging designers. What set Girlshop.com apart from other online retailers was its magazine-like look, thanks to founder and graphic designer, Laura Eisman.

"When we launched, the reason we were successful was, we offered unique products and we started this trend for emerging fashion," says Eisman. "Now that it's everywhere, it's made us less unique.

New Yorkers can take advantage of the liquidation sale from Thursday through Sunday at the Meatpacking District store at 819 Washington Street near Gansevoort Street.

Some of my first web purchases were from Girlshop, but I agree with what they are saying about it not being so unique anymore. There are so many sites that feature emerging designers now. Many that are much easier to navigate than Girlshop. Still sad news ~ Peace the spork out Girlshop

I used to like to look but I never bought. Hmmm... well, I doubt anyone will stay sad for too long cuz there's always something new to check out on the web. It's just the nature of the beast!

I know, MallRat. If you visit their site, there is no indication of them closing down. I think they stopped taking order 2 or so weeks ago.

Wow, I can't believe that! I'm surprised it doesn't say anything on their site about it.

Aw, that's sad. I love the stuff they sell. Not like I ever bought anything, though. While I loved the merch, the site itself was complicated and not very user friendly. Still, this is crappy news.
