VH1 is excited to announce that it will be getting a style overhaul very soon thanks to House Of Consignment. The show takes the cliche about “One man’s trash being another man’s treasure” and turns the trash, in this case Fendi bags and Jimmy Choos, into cash. Chicago entrepreneur Corri McFadden runs a booming store called eDrop-Off and, using her innate sense of style and business savvy, she resells high-end fashion items that have been rescued from her wealthy clients’ overflowing closets. Billed as “part intervention, part fashion lesson,” it’s also part interactive shopping experience, because viewers will be able to bid on certain items seen the show throughout the season. For more information about the show and McFadden’s style pedigree, check out our press release below. House of Consignment premieres Wednesday, March 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
New, Fashion Reality Show Premieres at a New Date and Time March, 21 at 10PM/9c and 10:30 PM/9:30c on VH1
NEW YORK, NY – February 15, 2011 - “House of Consignment” is a new 10 episode, half-hour reality series featuring Chicago entrepreneur and fashion maven, Corri McFadden, and her mission to improve the way women shop. By working with high-end clients at her sleek, Lincoln Park retail store, eDrop-Off, Corri’s consignment business turns luxury brand items into profit. What began as Corri’s senior project in fashion design school has turned her into a young, successful business woman and owner of a booming multi-million dollar company. Watch as Corri and her team of twenty-something fashionistas change the face of the consignment world on a daily basis. “House of Consignment” premieres with back-to-back episodes Wednesday, March 21 at 10PM/9c and 10:30 PM/9:30c.
“House of Consignment” follows Corri’s consignment empire as she gathers fashion items and accessories from the likes of Hermes to Chanel to Louis Vuitton. The secret is Corri’s ability to spot the authentic brands and foresee the resale value in her clients’ closets. Through an open auction platform on eBay, shoppers place bids on exclusive, couture items that will sell at top dollar in the ultimate fashion recycle.
The series also documents Corri’s daily challenges and dramas of running her own business. “House of Consignment” will follow Corri and her team while they make house calls to various clients for much needed “Closet Cleans.” This first-of-its-kind service sends eDrop-Off fashion pros directly into the homes and closets of their most exclusive (and wealthy) clients for an on-site fashion “edit.” Sifting, sorting and exploring her way through clothes and accessories totaling in the tens-of-thousands of dollars, Corri advises her clients on what to keep, toss and sell for big bucks on consignment.
Part intervention, part fashion lesson, “House of Consignment” offers viewers useful fashion advice as Corri uncovers surprisingly provocative and personal stories behind the clothes. Watch as Corri makes high-end fashion brands accessible to even the most budget-conscious, 20-something customer. It is the ultimate “fashion therapy” that never goes out of style.
Viewers can also join the fashion revolution. eBay will host a live auction for fans to bid on one, special item that was featured in that evening’s episode. Go to HouseofConsignment.vh1.com to learn more or on VH1’s Facebook and Twitter @VH1 and #HOC.
“House of Consignment” is executive produced by Stephanie Drachkovitch and co-executive produced by Jennifer Colbert for 44 Blue Productions. Executive producers for VH1 are Kristen Kelly, Jill Holmes and Jeff Olde.
