"HOUSE OF CONSIGNMENT" SETS TO RULE VH1 WITH ITS RETAIL REVOLUTION
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 16, 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 foresees 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 Clean." 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.
