At What Price Luxury? On the Hunt for Fast, Fake Fashion in Tbilisi, Georgia

"We’re going to Lilo Plaza, a bazaar located on the outskirts of the city. The outdoor shopping center is the ultimate destination for all-things-knockoff, as well as a still-standing symbol of the pursuit of logo-ed luxury goods that saturated the post–Soviet Union in the early ’90s, when the free market filtered in and the ex-USSR was flooded with imported counterfeit designer garb from countries like Turkey and China."

How Revolve Became the Biggest, Trendiest, Most Profitable E-commerce Startup You've Never Heard Of

"Revolve is a Los Angeles clothing company on track to sell $400 million worth of dresses, hats, and other trendy young women’s apparel this year. That’s a multiple of what e-commerce peer Nasty Gal pulls in, and more than British luxury site Farfetch, which investors recently valued at $1 billion. It’s more than twice as much as Jessica Alba’s Honest Company, valued at $1.7 billion, is predicted to earn this year. And Revolve is profitable, having grown more than 50% each year since 2012."
