New web venture Hello La Mode hosts its preview party in NYC
An array of fashion industry insiders, including staff from Haute Diary, NY Fashion Hunter, and blogger Christine Tsang, came together at 28on27 last Tuesday evening for an intimate gathering to celebrate the pre-launch of Hello La Mode, North America’s first ever online marketplace for certified luxury resale.
The premise is simple: potential sellers list their no longer needed luxury items, whether vintage or new, and buyers may make the option to purchase. At which point, the seller ships to Hello La Mode, which functions as the intermediary and who then verifies the product’s authenticity, and will then complete the transaction, taking care of shipping and payment to the respective members. In essence, it is similar to France’s Vestiaire de Copines but taken to the next level in terms of security and community.
Guests were treated to Parisian inspired treats and sipped on sparkling wine, with some taking the opportunity to show off their style at the onsite photo booth. Hello La Mode will officially launch this month.
