Every so often, a new concept in shopping comes along to excite and invite, Couture Crush is just one of those websites. The concept is really simple, Couture Crush offers you the means to sell your unwanted designer and vintage buys in a safe environment, you can also look for a designer bargain at the fraction of the RRP. And, most interesting, if you have something to sell, and want to buy something on the site, you can always offer a swap, hence the fabulous motto ‘see, seek and switch’.
Kaley Beardsmore, the brains behind Couture Crush describes some of their clients on the about page, saying ‘Our members are an eclectic mix of fashion conscience students looking to add a pair of Louboutins to a high street look, to young professionals seeking a Chanel handbag for the big boardroom seminars, to socialites and fashionistas looking for a rare find and something completely unique from our handpicked vintage collection.’ I would agree that all these ladies would love and gain from the Couture Crush service, but I think a group has been missed out.
In these label obsessed days, moms often spend a fortune on clothing for their young children, with designer labels being more popular than ever for fashion-conscious mothers with fashion-conscious kids. Labels such as Burberry, Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs all design ranges for children, with Ralph Lauren and Ben Sherman being amongst other labels that are child friendly. The main problem with these ranges is that very young children grow very quickly, and so often the designer wear has hardly been worn before it is consigned to the pile labeled ‘no longer fits’. The idea solution to this is to be able to sell it on, and Couture Crush is a great way to be able to do this. You can either sell the items on at the price that suits you, or you can swap for something else, maybe clothes in the next size up for your child, or even a little treat for yourself!
Membership is free, and there is a pre-sales authentication service from Authenticate4U. This is definitely a great way to make some money from items that no longer fit, you no longer want, or no longer need. Couture Crush is a great idea that I expect to grow and grow. Why not join today?
