The Own The Couture website offers a new twist on consignment shopping. The recycled, second-hand top of the line apparel is all authenticated prior to listing on the website. Access is also heavily restricted as it is a members-only platform, adding an element of exclusivity to the already chic concept.

Brands featured on the Own The Couture site include Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Tory Burch and Kate Spade, amongst others. The pre-owned policy is enabling items from these labels to take up residency in new closets. As the pieces are high in quality and non-damaged, they will likely be worn well into the future.

Styling pointers are also provided by the Own The Couture team. In this sense it is much like a retail store as users get a personalized shopping experience.
