Amazon on Tuesday morning announced the launch of its Luxury Stores for designer fashion brands.

Designers that have long relied on struggling department stores to get in front of customers are searching for other channels of distribution.

Amazon’s Luxury Stores will also include interactive features like a 360-degree viewing option, which allows shoppers to see items on different body types and various skin tones.
