Hello from Buenos Aires! I recently joined the Forbes Travel Guide / Startle.com team as the outlets’ Buenos Aires correspondent, which has given me even more reason to continue exploring the city. For one of my first posts, I enlisted the help of some Buenos Aires-based fashionistas to help me—and therefore, I hope, readers—break down the city’s shopping scene, which I have always found a bit overwhelming and challenging to navigate.

Your Personalized Buenos Aires Luxury Shopping Guide

An excerpt (from the above link):

Be it a custom-made leather jacket, handcrafted jewelry or an edgy, au courant design that willowyporteñas (Buenos Aires residents) wear so well, tourists tend to arrive in Argentina’s cosmopolitan capital with room for purchases in their luggage. Potential language barrier aside, shopping inBuenos Aires can be daunting for outsiders. Big-box stores are noticeably absent, substituted instead with scores of bijoux boutiques, curated with only a few pieces of every design. The same goes for private showrooms, where much of the city’s best design work is being executed behind closed doors. It requires simply knowing they exist and then making a reservation to visit.

Fortunately for out-of-towners, a few Buenos Aires-based fashionistas have stepped up to guide you directly to the city’s best designer duds, boutiques, showrooms and the designers themselves, offering tailored tours and handy shopping resources.
