PhilaU fashion faculty Wyatt and Faust address designer handbag aftermarket: Philadelphia Inquirer

Fashion merchandising and management faculty members Nioka Wyatt and Marie-Eve Faust were featured in a March 24 Philadelphia Inquirer story on the consumer market for secondhand designer handbags.

Wyatt said selling used designer bags is “a new fashion construct that is gaining popularity because it gives consumers an opportunity to buy into a certain class with less money.” Faust said there are no fit issues with handbags and less stigma associated with buying secondhand pocketbooks compared to buying used clothing.

The story also ran in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on March 25.
