Asos.com earned its latest Webby Award—the Internet’s Oscars—by providing “eminently reliable customer service” and constantly innovating, said The Independent (U.K.). The site “has injected fashion with a more discerning edge” in part through regular collaborations with innovative designers.
Fab.com, winner of a “people’s choice” Webby, may be the fastest-growing e-commerce start-up ever, said Forbes. The site sells everything from T-shirts to whimsical pet bowls—and each well-designed item is “something you’ve never seen before.”
Wantful.com “is like a virtual personal shopper,” said NYTimes.com. When you need a gift, just choose a price range and share some insights about the recipient. The fledgling site curates a list of gift choices that it mails or emails to that person. When the recipient makes a choice, the gift is shipped and you’re charged.
