Meet Deborah, a Key Account Manager for our UK Consignment Team. She's been a part of the Vestiaire Collective team for 3 years - and she loves it! She always has her finger on the pulse of fashion trends and her eagle-eye for pre-loved treasure makes her the ideal person to find hidden gems in her client's closets. But what are her fashion holy grails? Today she shares some of her secrets...
...a vintage shearling jacket, in hot pink, cropped to fit just above the belly button. Statement accessories like Loewe’s Balloon Beigeal heels, and Daniel Rosebery-era Schiaparelli earrings. A hot pink dress from Miscreant, with matching gloves. Finally, after all the partying in heels I'm after a pair of Nike SB Dunks to step into the new year with!
...getting to access some pretty amazing wardrobes (and beautifully decorated homes!) and finding gems. For me 'gems' means anything from Hermès to Chanel, that I encourage our clients to consign. To be honest: most of the time hardly any convincing is needed as the clients are usually ready to sell their pieces – often to make room for their next purchase. This is my third role at Vestiaire and by far my favorite!
...my mum back in the '80s (of course), as well as '90s R'n'B girl groups and fictional characters, like Hilary Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Fran Drescher from The Nanny. Also I love people-watching, aka IRL streetstyle. The best style advice I've ever received was simple: “Fashion changes, but style endures”.
...that the time to consign is now! Also keep an eye out on the items that are trending on TikTok or on the Lyst Index. Then have a shop in your wardrobe, and book an appointment with the Consignment Team. Our end-to-end service takes care of everything for you, from collection and photography to authentication and storage. We'll get you started and make selling fast and easy!
