HauteLook.com is an exclusive club that organizes 24-72 hour private online sales of premium fashion and luxury lifestyle brands. Each day, Haute Look sends an e-mail notifying members of the latest sales, which can be as high as 90% off.
According to the Web site, “HAUTELOOK is an exclusive platform where premium brands reach their consumers directly.” Members can select five friends to send an e-mail invitation to join. While joining is free, the invitation creates a level of exclusivity and plays a significant role.
