For all of you Narcisco Rodriguez fans who love his designs but can’t afford his glamorous gowns, I have huge news. Recently, rumors have been flying that Rodriguez will be designing exclusively for eBay. Yes, eBay. Apparently, the popular auction-based site has not yet to garner respect from the fashion industry and this is the company’s attempt to enter the inner circle. The collaboration will, in turn, benefit Rodriguez as he’ll be expanding his customer base to an audience who normally can’t fork over the funds for his fabulous designs.
Rodriguez’s line for eBay will be called “Narcisco Rodriguez for eBay”. How clever. The pieces will be sold at prices ranging from $75 to $350–which is quite a steal, compared to the price of his original collection. The line will debut in Spring 2010, and I can’t wait to see what the pieces will look like. I’ll keep you posted!
