About Designer Consigner

“A Passion for Fashion.”


Does this describe your closet?

“I have a few items that I wear on a regularly and many more that are taking up valuable closet space. Some items are too small (that I wish I could fit into), some are too big (that I hope I will never fit into again), some still have tags attached that I’ve never worn (and probably never will). I have shoes, jewelry and purses that I spent a small fortune on, but only used on a few occasions. All taking up way too much space.”

The co-founders had this problem as well and that’s where the idea for Designer Consigner came from.
