STYLE.COM Introduces Style Revival, an Online Consignment Auction for Designer Fashions
NEW YORK (November 14, 2000) -- STYLE.COM, home of Vogue.com and Wmagazine.com and the online address for fashion enthusiasts, today announces the debut of Style Revival, an online auction for previously owned designer clothing and accessories. Shoppers can browse the latest Style Revival fashions on the "Shop" channel of STYLE.COM.
Style Revival features designs from the fashion world's most exclusive labels -- all in excellent condition and no more than two years old. In some cases, exceptions will be made for select, vintage items that have strong timeless appeal.
Style Revival captures the flavor and experience of a high-end consignment boutique on the Internet. From the elegant evening gown to the funky leather jacket, Style Revival inspires sellers and shoppers to create a fun, engaging forum for the exchange of designer fashions from yesteryear. Style Revival breathes new life into previously owned designer fashions and guarantees the longevity of classic shoes, coats, dresses, accessories and more.
DoubleTake Consignment Boutique, widely recognized as one of the country's finest consignment boutiques, will carefully appraise all items submitted to Style Revival, set opening prices and handle fulfillment of goods. Items will be auctioned on Style Revival and sellers will receive 50% of the sale price.
"Style Revival is an excellent way for consumers to add new depth to their fashion collection, whether they are making room for the latest trends or looking for the classic piece that is always in style," says Goli Sheikholeslami, senior vice president and managing director of STYLE.COM.
