Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Missoni, Pucci—these are just some of the big-time, luxury fashion names that flash sale site Gilt Groupe has built its reputation on selling. The site brings major fashion, jewelry, and accessories discounts to the public. As one of the most successful ecommerce launches in recent history, Gilt is on track to do more than $500 million in sales this year alone.
Recently, Business Insider popped by the Gilt offices in Brooklyn—a 200,000 square foot warehouse and office space that houses merchandise, customer service, and operations.

Check out where your luxury merch lives before it arrives on your doorstep.
