Last night, shopaholics celebrated the grand opening of luxury e-tailer Gilt’s first brick-and-mortar shop inside Manhattan’s Saks OFF 5th.

Guests sipped champagne with blogger and actress Jamie Chung while browsing designs from over 800 brands, as well as carefully curated pieces from Zadig & Voltaire within the Gilt shop. The French fashion brand was chosen as the shop’s first flash sale in honor of Paris Fashion Week, and new brands will be introduced every Wednesday.

“Our customers keep up with these fashion moments and we know inspired sales—in addition to our amazing deals—will make them even more excited about shopping,” said Jonathan Greller, President of Hudson’s Bay Company Off-Price.

The flash sale concept provides a thrilling shopping experience, but that doesn’t mean in-store Gilt shoppers will be limited in what they can buy. The sleek outpost is home to numerous iPads where visitors can shop gilt.comwith the help of on-hand Gilt associates. Additionally, Gilt merchandise purchased online can be returned at Saks OFF 5th for store credit, providing a more seamless experience for all.
