StyleRecovery - The New Way to Recycle

The newest shopping website to hit the U.S. is the already-popular-in-Europe site  In the six weeks since they've launched, Style Recovery has accumulated 3,500 new members (compared to the over 60,000 in Europe!) Founded initially in France by Pauline Truchot, the idea was sparked by the realization that is not uncommon to most women: There are so many awesome things in your closet, but you're probably not going to wear or use them anymore.  Enter: Prada, Gucci, Chanel and Alexander McQueen. provides a simple and safe outlet for people who want to sell their high-end clothing to an audience that really understands the value of designer products.  The goal is to salvage the  uber-beautiful by directly selling to buyers who will give said items a pulse again.

The online community is made up of fashion lovers that appreciate and have the knowledge of designer products and their value, regardless of if they are new or used. With this common understanding, sellers can name their price and still make a profit, while the buyers benefit by paying a fraction of the cost of retail prices.
