NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GLINNT announces the launch of its innovative jewelry and accessories ecommerce platform and taps industry experts to curate the GLINNT Founding Fifty – a select group of designers who will set the bar for future talent.
The expert panel includes: Veronica Glendhill, Senior Market Editor for New York Magazine online; Erin Hazelton, fashion writer with contributions to Vogue UK, Vogue Russia, and Fashion Wire Daily; Kody Pangburn and Jade Furtado -- founders and curators at Wonderland Vintage; and Ashley Owens, fashion arbiter and Editor-in-Chief of Grandpa Style.
In a digital universe flooded with mass-market accessory retailers, GLINNT provides the discerning fashion lover with premium picks in modern accessories from top design talent. Offerings are finely tuned and tailored to the saavy shopper with a penchant for where-did-you-find-that necklaces and can-I-inherit-those earrings.
GLINNT's elegant site layout eliminates the usual dig through bangles and baubles, and Google searches that yield pages of mimics and knock-offs. In addition, each month guest curators – stylists, editors, and other fashion professionals – will offer up their premium picks from the freshest voices in jewelry design.
"We're so excited to work with GLINNT and to support truly talented designers in a way that showcases the best of what they have to offer," says Kody Pangburn, co-founder and curator at Vintage Wonderland. "As a vintage curator, I know what it's like to sift through mountains of mediocre things to get to that one, amazingly designed piece. GLINNT will lead customers straight to those special items."
Once the GLINNT Founding Fifty has been finalized, the expert panel will judge their collections and announce a winner prior to Valentine's Day 2014.
