A Royal Expansion
The leading ladies of designer resale are expanding their empire. Women’s Closet Exchange, subject of the Style Network series “Resale Royalty,” has opened a second location in Brentwood. The 6,000-squarefoot store at 2325 Brentwood Blvd. is significantly larger than the current South County location, with lots of bonus shopping opportunities on the designer front.
Owner Sue McCarthy and daughters Diana Ford and Laura Maurice captured the public eye last year when they became the subjects of the Rachel Zoe-produced reality series, which focused on their lucrative business and the ins and outs of highend resale.
The new Brentwood WCE houses an event space as well as Purple Cow, a resale shop for children and expectant mothers, which moved out of its South County location. It is also home to “The Vault,” a specialty space where McCarthy and her daughters keep exclusive couture pieces. With 15,000 suppliers from across the country, WCE has also launched online shopping at womensclosetexchange.net to support the new Brentwood location and the flagship store in South County. The opening of the new location was marked by a fab “Bag to the Bone” runway show, featuring designer handbags by Gucci, Prada, Chanel and more.
