Press Release: February 09, 2010
Designer Auction (www.designerauction.co.uk), the upmarket fashion auction site, offers shoppers the latest in-season designer styles as well as all-time classics, with auction winners able to win goods at 90% lower than their retail price.
Bid or Buy
Every day Designer Auctions top style team scours the $300 billion fashion industry for the latest fashion and street styles to auction everything from that blouse to getting the red carpet look and accessories to-die-for. Visitors to the site can then place their bids and last bid in the auction will strut away with the hottest fashion fix. Unlike other auction sites, those that miss out on the winning bid are not disappointed. If shoppers dont win a bid, they can go ahead and buy the item at a discounted price.
The founders commented, It hit me when I was shopping on Regent Street that theres no dedicated five star shopping experience online where a real slavish dedication has gone into making sure youre bidding for top designer names and avoiding poor imitations. There is nothing more disappointing than winning your bid and receiving a garment that turns out to be out of season or, even worse, a fake far from the genuine article.
The fashion world moves so fast that we wanted to create an auction site that reflects that, making sure youre always bidding or buying in season collections. With a team obsessed with fashion were proud to say our site offers a little more than other auction sites as were truly dedicated to only providing up-to-the-minute fashions.
Luxury designer brands now have an exclusive auction site they can call their own, away from the hubbub of mainstream auction sites which have been notorious for selling fakes. Last year a French court fined eBay £31.6m for selling counterfeit goods from Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Christian Dior and Givenchy.
Designer Auction will also be working directly with designers and celebrities to come up with special auctions of world-class designs that wouldnt look out of place in an Oscar goody-bag. Designer Auction supports several charities, donating a significant amount of the proceeds.
Designer Auction features major designer names including Chanel, Prada and Bvlgari and offers not just clothing, but perfumes, accessories, lifestyle items and stylish gadgets, all available for below high street prices. The site includes special offers on the latest looks hot off the catwalk as well as hard to find retro classics.
People can bid for the latest fashion items in online auctions, and if they dont win the auction, can use their bids as credit to buy the item directly at a credit-crunch friendly price.
