WE ARE AN ONLINE MAGAZINE for cultured millennials and creative professionals, a digital resource of the very best in today’s digital landscape.
Launched in 2007, This Is Glamorous gained a strong loyal following for its uncompromising presentation of only the very best of the internets, featuring intelligent concepts paired with high-end visuals, making navigating the vast digital wilderness not only easier, but an undeniable pleasure. We only feature the most exquisite visual stories from across the worlds of fashion, décor, art, architecture, design, beauty, food and travel.
Behind the Brand & A Timeline
The official launch of shop.thisisglamorous.com.
The concept for the new online shop is that it will function very much like a gallery, showcasing a collection of the most beautiful things on the interwebs created by the best artists & artisans from around the world. With a focus on design & craftsmanship, the shop consists of boutiques, with Belgrave Crescent being one, carrying our line of leather goods, and This Is Glamorous being another, carrying our own branded products, as well as things we have always loved, or items just discovered that will become longstanding favourites.
The new design, well ahead of its time, would be met with critical acclaim by design aficionados and readers alike, finding its way onto siteinspire just three months following launch, and be much-imitated for years to come.
The redesign would mark the successful shift of This Is Glamorous from blog to full-service website & online magazine.
While the new shop was quietly live in November 2013, it would not be until the new year until the official announcement. This Is Glamorous would be one of the very first blogs to successfully launch a separate brand.
The ethos for Belgrave Crescent:
The intermingling of design, function, exceptional craftsmanship, and beautiful materials. We are a young, modern company with a deep admiration and appreciation for the care and craftsmanship of the things of yesterday — ornate opera houses and romantic cobblestone streets — and are obsessed with creating and hand-selecting products that withstand trends and the test of time.
