The terms “daily deals” and “flash sale” are ubiquitous, and these days simply hearing those words is enough to make some cringe. Fortunately, with the saturation of the space comes market maturity, higher quality of products and targeting, and a more sophisticated e-commerce model.Click here to the see the limited-edition T-shirts >
Three-month-old design marketplace Fab.com is on a mission to not only bring amazing products to the masses…but also to evolve and refine the model of social commerce as we currently know it.
In addition to daily inspiration emails, Fab.com gives members a public profile and platform to share images through an Inspiration Wall, and most notably through Fab.com Pop Up Shops: carefully curated collections around a specific theme, lasting longer than the standard 3-day sale (30-45 days).
Fab.com’s latest iteration of this, the PopTee Pop Up Shop, embraces this next generation spin on more traditional social commerce, and showcases 18 limited edition T-shirts (from some of the world’s foremost graphic designers and artists), created exclusively for Fab.com members.
Check out 10 of the most innovative T-shirts (and their designers) from the Fab.com PopTee Pop Up Shop, available throughout the month of October.
