Big things are happening for luxury fashion marketplace Shop Hers. After joining the online resale scene last year, the Santa Monica-based startup swiftly outgrew its first HQ, moving from a tiny cubicle to a 1,500-square-foot studio. This week, founder/juice pal Jaclyn Shanfeld and her crew relocated once again to a brand-new 3,200-square-foot showroom, just weeks after the site toasted its first birthday. (Congrats!)
We paid a visit to the massive designer-filled space (Hermès! Chanel! Louboutin! Céline!) to check out the label lover haven in all its glory and to talk shop with the startup's stylish founder about the future of the site. In addition to adding just a few more staff members to round out their small (and growing) team, Shop Hers & Co. is also rolling out a new wish list feature next year, plus more interactive tools that'll allow sellers to reach out to potential buyers. That's not all: Shanfeld also tells us iPhone and Android apps are also in the works, too.
Take a virtual tour of the startup's huge new showroom and check out the gallery above.
