    eBay x WGACA Launch Party
    eBay X What Goes Around Comes Around

    Last night in SoHo, we invited our friends, industry insiders, influencers, and celebrities to help us celebrate the launch of our partnership with eBay on a series of exclusive capsule collections. Our first capsule collection, 'Peace, Luxe and Rock and Roll,' includes over 1,300 exceptionally rare and unique items that symbolize music's influence on fashion, and the evolution of trends and style across genres and musical moments.

    To bring our theme to life, we transformed our SoHo store into a celebration of Woodstock. We set the scene by covering our storefront with a mural from the festival in '69, adorned with whimsical floral arrangements, antique carpets, and vintage stereos. A 60's-esque VW bus turned Photo Booth and a Van Leeuwen ice cream truck allowed our guests to fully immerse themselves into the festival experience.

    To shop coveted items and vintage pieces from designers like Hermes, Chanel, Dior, Saint Laurent, Fendi, Chloe, and more, head to www.eBay.com/WhatGoesAroundComesAround. Our full capsule collection is available on eBay through Thursday, June 20th at midnight, PDT.

    "Peace, Luxe and Rock and Roll"

    We are so excited to announce a series of exclusive capsule collections with eBay, one of the largest and most vibrant marketplaces in the world. Our first collaboration celebrates 'Peace, Luxe and Rock and Roll' with an amazing luxury fashion collection, available here, today through Thursday, June 20th at midnight, PDT.

    Our limited-edition collection includes more than 1,300 unique and coveted items spanning women's and men's ready-to-wear, luxury accessories and vintage pieces from designers like Hermes, Chanel, Dior, Saint Laurent, Fendi, Chloe, and more. All of the items symbolize music's influence on fashion, and illustrate how trends and styles have evolved over genres, generations, and decades. From musical movements and summer concerts to the emergence of festival season, each piece represents important moments in culture.

    To bring the campaign and rock theme to life, we tapped IT girls Theodora and Alexandra Richards, the daughters of Supermodel Patti Hanson and legendary Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. Music is in the sisters' DNA and many facets of their lives; Theodora hosts "Off the Cuff," a monthly music show on Sirius XM, and Alexandra is a go-to DJ for brands like Tiffany & Co., Yves Saint Laurent and Victoria Secret. Coupled with their success as models, Alexandra and Theodora were a natural embodiment of the collection: a mix of 'Rock and Roll' and effortless, modern style elevated by one-of-a-kind items, designer pieces, ready-to-wear and accessories. Key looks in the campaign included the Kamali White Hand Beaded Fringe Jacket, Chanel Yellow Velvet Bag, Hermes Kellys, and a Floral Dior Canvas Saddle bag, which were captured at Urban Cowboy in Brooklyn, NY by photographer Sophie Elgort.

    "We are beyond excited to begin our partnership with eBay, and to introduce our brand on their prodigious platform," said Seth Weisser, Co-Founder & CEO, What Goes Around Comes Around. "For the past two decades, What Goes Around Comes Around and eBay have been the market leaders for the pre-owned vintage luxury space, which makes our collaboration a natural fit. The opportunity to offer our uniquely curated approach to reach eBay's incredible audience of international collectors is unprecedented, and our lifestyle product offerings from Chanel and Hermes to Levis and true vintage are perfectly positioned to excite both brands' fans."

    Renee Paradise, Head of Fashion at eBay adds, "Our partnership with What Goes Around Comes Around offers buyers a special opportunity to shop a highly-curated selection of exceptional luxury pieces. The first collection comprises one-of-a kind items and coveted vintage pieces by Chanel and Chloe, among other labels. Bringing together the best of both brands - amazing, rare luxury inventory and the power of our global marketplace - our collaboration with What Goes Around Comes Around delivers an incredible selection of luxury, fashion, accessories and collectibles from around the world."

    Luxury items and special, limited-edition curated sales are something only eBay x What Goes Around Comes Around can offer, and will excite everyone from seasoned and emerging collectors to vintage fashion enthusiasts. To shop the collection, visit www.eBay.com/WhatGoesAroundComesAround and join the conversation on social using the hashtag #eBayxWGACA.

  3. Denim Recycling

    Denim Recycling

    Here at WGACA headquarters, we have been busy gearing up for the warm days to come. In our denim department vintage Levi's jeans are being repaired and mended on a daily basis. Some wonderful pairs are also being made into shorts, the scraps we have been collecting needed new life...

    EARTH DAY FACT:

    It takes nearly 2,000 gallons of water to produce one pair of jeans. Imagine that this pair of jeans eventually ends up in a landfill. How sad that the water used to produce the denim was also wasted. We wanted to do something about this...

    Earth Day is the perfect time to make environmentally sound choices: Reducing, reusing, and recycling are equally important. Selling pre-owned luxury vintage bags is just one component to WGACA. So, while sustainability is in our DNA, there are additional ways to have more of a cradle to cradle approach within a business.

    That is why we're excited to announce that WGACA is starting to recycle denim scraps via Cotton's Blue Jeans Go Green™ program which is part of their initiative to combat textile waste! Cotton has recycled over 1,200 tons of denim and diverted over 2,400,000 pieces from landfills.

    Our denim will be shredded and recycled into environmentally friendly UltraTouch™ denim Insulation for houses. Additionally, each year - a portion of the insulation collected through Cotton's Blue Jeans Go Green™ program is distributed to help with building efforts in communities across the U.S., often in areas affected by natural disasters.

    Blue Jeans Go Green™ is a trademark of Cotton Incorporated.
    UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation is a trademark of Bonded Logic, Inc.

  4. Celebrating Women's History Month

    Celebrating Women's History Month

    In celebration of Women's History Month, What Goes Around Comes Around hosted a series of "Power Hours" in the Madison Avenue, Beverly Hills and Miami Flagships. The Power Hours featured empowering discussions with a select group of self-made women on what it means to be a modern-day girlboss, and a preview of the ultimate power dressing pieces.

    Read on to learn more about the inspiring women who featured on our panels.

    Mandi Meng

    Mandi Meng, Vice President of Marketing & Communications

    Can you describe what you do at What Goes Around Comes Around?

    As Vice President of Marketing & Communications, I oversee everything that has to do with branding and messaging for What Goes Around Comes Around. I love what I do, and it's so rewarding to creatively work cross-functionally across departments with my team to tell a cohesive brand story and provide a luxury experience across channels. Another important (and fun) aspect of my role is coming up with concepts and initiatives for WGACA, and aligning with the right partners, celebrities, influencers, and events in order to maximize reach and consistently creating buzz for the brand.

    What does "success" mean to you?

    There are so many ways to define success, and I truly believe that it's different for everyone. There's no 'right' answer. For me, success means something unique in each area of my life. It's about finding joy in the small things, practicing gratitude, learning something new each day, watching my team grow and evolve (and hopefully teaching them some things along the way), and always constantly striving to achieve my goals both personally and professionally.

    What do you wear to feel empowered at work?

    I feel empowered when I feel like myself, and my go-to power ensemble outfit formula is to pair a patterned midi or maxi dress with a vintage blazer (Chanel is my favorite, of course), ankle boots, and a killer handbag (usually also Chanel, but working up to my first Hermes).

    What's the best career advice you've never forgotten?

    Never stop reaching - there are so many moments in my career where I could have done the safe thing, but I always chose to follow my dreams, trust in my intuition, and go for it!

    Who is one woman who has inspired you throughout your career?

    Not to sound cliche, but my mom - she is an incredible example of believing and achieving. I grew up with parents who were both entrepreneurs, and my mom was able to somehow manage an amazing and successful career while still being the ultimate mother, volunteering for multiple charities, mentoring other working women, and so much more.

    What would be your ultimate power dressing purchase?

    Hagar Elaziz, Founder & CEO at La Fleur

    Can you describe what you do at La Fleur?

    I am the founder and CEO of La Fleur Bouquets. I primarily focus on product and color development now. I designed all of our rose boxes, rose colors, logo, website, etc. when I launched.

    What does "success" mean to you?

    Success is being able to give back in the form of opportunities to others.

    What do you wear to feel empowered at work?

    There is something so understated yet strong about wearing a pair of sneakers with a suit.

    What's the best career advice you've never forgotten?

    A good reputation is hard to keep and a bad one is hard to get rid of. Continuing to treat every single person with respect and transparency has allowed me to cultivate some amazing relationships that have taken my career to the next level time and time again.

    Who is one woman who has inspired you throughout your career?

    Sara Blakely (the founder of Spanx). I think it's incredible to create an entirely new product, but what's even more impressive to me is redefining a product. Sara was able to do that from her living room and has created one of the most impressive empires all while continuing to own her brand and give back in tremendous ways.

    What would be your ultimate power dressing purchase?

    I would choose a blazer for sure:

    April Mokwa

    April Mokwa, Managing Editor at Fast Company

    Can you describe what you do at Fast Company?

    As the managing editor, I work with the editorial team to produce the print magazine. I ensure that everyone on my staff has what they need to meet their deadlines, that all departments are communicating and working together and that we stay on track, budget and schedule.

    What does "success" mean to you?

    Success has multiple meanings and I think it continues to shift as my career grows. On a large level, success to me is having a positive and meaningful impact that contributes to a product that I'm proud of.

    What do you wear to feel empowered at work?

    I've come to have a "uniform" of skinny jeans with dark toned basic tops such as black crew neck tees, knit sweaters and chambray button downs, usually paired with black boots in winter or a loafer or sandal in summer.

    What's the best career advice you've never forgotten?

    Last year I read Fran Hauser's The Myth of the Nice Girl and while it's still fresh in my mind, I have a feeling it will be a book I read multiple times. She talks a lot about finding a balance between being a strong female lead and remaining kind. There's often a feeling that women have to become "hardened" to succeed and I place a lot of importance on being friendly and approachable in leadership roles.

    Who is one woman who has inspired you throughout your career?

    I wouldn't say there is just one woman but multiple. I admired how my mother was able to "balance" working full time and raising a family. She's worked for the same company for 30 years yet was always there for school events, family dinners and an active social life. I've also admired women like Diane Von Furstenberg, Michelle Obama and obviously Oprah.

    What would be your ultimate power dressing purchase?

    I've always eyed Chanel tweed jackets. Comfortable, classic black pumps have also been on my wish list for a long time.
