Do you have a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear? That’s because women wear only 20% of their closets 80% of the time. We love to shop and keep up to date with the latest fashion trends. What happens to all those great luxury items that we amass but don’t necessarily want to part with? A service where one can temporarily lend out as well as sell their luxury goods to make extra money is the answer!
Luxe Crush offers a unique combination of renting, lending, selling and buying!
Ownership is giving way to on-demand rental services and we are becoming far more motivated by life experiences and personal enrichment rather than possession. Luxe Crush is an online marketplace where you can share your belongings with the entire nation. We offer short term commitments and nominal fees even as luxury prices continue to rise.
Resale in the long-term is better for the environment because it’s not creating waste. Each time you rent or purchase pre-owned instead of brand new you reduce the impact on the environment and help mitigate waste and pollution.
MEET THE FOUNDERS
Co-founders Shirley Chen and Cynthia Hudson have been friends for over a decade. They immediately bonded over fashion, food, movies, and their love for animals. With nearly 40 years of combined experience in luxury retail they understand the pressure of dressing to impress and want to offer affordable access to luxury for all women.
We had always looked up to and admired women business owners but were used to working in corporate retail. We thought of how convenient a service Airbnb offerered and wanted to apply it to our closets. Thus, Luxe Crush was born.
