The E-Commerce Symposium at Haus Wittgenstein offered the opportunity to explore the functionality of new distribution channels on the internet.
Today webshops offering luxury and designer goods are flooding the online market. In some cases, international designers even offer their collections for sale on their own websites. Luxury Internet auctions lure customers with luxury items at bargain-basement prices. The dark side of this development is that spams touting counterfeit luxury goods are inundating inboxes, becoming a serious threat for consumers. This topic was addressed by Imran Amed - businessoffashion.net - in discussion with representatives of Internet portals that sell contemporary fashion: Sarah Curran (my-wardrobe.com), José Neves (farfetch.com) und Stephanie Phair (theoutnet.com)
