Couture Within Reach launches new website

Couture Within Reach has launched an online luxury consignment website. The online clothing and accessory store—known for its high-end fashion items from brands such as Hermes, Chanel, Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton—sells items on consignment.

With the launch of the site, shoppers can easily find new luxury products as well as a variety of pre-owned luxury items that include handbags, accessories, shoes and more.

Based in New York City, specialty items found on come from established personalities, ranging from socialites to celebrities. Items are one of a kind, so speed plays a role.

"Our consignors always surprise us with their unique items," said CEO and Founder Maiyang Kim. "However, what you see now could be gone in a second! And once we began shipping our merchandise to customers on a global basis, we've been finding that people all over the world are simply amazed with our luxurious and unique findings."

The marketplace offers a layaway program, which allows them to layaway one item at a time while requiring a 30 percent to 50 percent discount. Shoppers then have 60 days to pay for the item. Personal shopping is also available plus international shipping.

Couture Within Reach joins a growing number of retail marketplaces that offer apparel, accessories and other fashion on consignment. For example, Pose recently unveiled a new feature of its Web- and app-based digital photo sharing service, creating a unique shopping consignment experience that allows users to trade merchandise directly with friends. And luxury consignment auction site eDrop-Off recently announced it will open its first retail store in Chicago.
