At last, a popularity contest we can get excited about: Derek Lam just announced he's doing a crowdsourced capsule collection for eBay. The designer will unveil a ready-to-wear collection of original designs at a presentation during NYFW in February 2011 and invite shoppers to vote for their favorites on eBay.com. The final collection will be available for purchase in Spring/Summer 2011 -- all at fixed prices, no auction action required. [Racked Inbox]
