Second Time Around & Style for Hire Partner for In-Home Consignment Experience


(New York, NY; September 2012) - Upscale consignment chain Second Time Around (STA) and styling agency Style for Hire, a national network of trained and certified personal Stylists, have teamed up to launch the ultimate style concierge service - in-home closet sessions where the experts evaluate and effortlessly consign clients' high end, designer clothing. Starting this Fall, clients nationwide will be able to enjoy this unique complimentary service, as part of Second Time Around and Style for Hire's Closet Audit & Closet Shopping experiences. Expert Stylists will assess unwanted designer clothing and then bring them to the nearest Second Time Around location, where the items are placed on consignment.

Style for Hire experts work in a "judgment-free zone" to help clients look and feel their best every day. Style for Hire Stylists help clients learn to dress for their unique bodies, budgets and lifestyles while optimizing the investments they have already made in their wardrobes. Stacy and her Style for Hire team believe that everyone should have access to help with personal style no matter what their budget or wardrobe needs.

STA and Style for Hire are a natural style fit as STA maintains its commitment to the selling the finest selection of coveted designer pieces, with a trained staff creating an inventory of new and mint-condition items to bring an exciting element to every shopping experience. Recently featured as the focus of Bravo's reality television show Fashion Hunters, STA gave an inside look at the world of upscale consignment from the perspective of one of its stores in New York City.

STA CEO Bill Soncini says of the partnership, "We are thrilled to have a stylist partner with so much experience with high-end clientele, and hope this service offers our consignors with luxury items a chance to consign with us from the comfort of their homes."
