If you have cable please watch Fashion Hunters for me tonight at 10:30pm/9:30c on Bravo TV. Fashion Hunters is about the Second Time Around consignment shop in Manhattan on the Upper East Side. When I saw on Twitter that Michael Tonello, author of one of my favorite fashion books, Bringing Home the Birkin, will be a guest on the show I instantly linked to Bravo to see the preview and this episode looks like a good one. The sellers at Second Time Around invite a number of Hermès Birkin and Kelly owners to a party, I’m assuming to see if anyone is interested in selling their bag, and Michael tells Ambria, the Assistant Manager, that one of the Birkins brought to the party is a fake!
It’s no secret I am a huge Hermès fan and a Birkin or a Kelly (probably vintage) is at the top of my wish list. After reading Michael’s book about his stint as a Birkin reseller, I know he is an expert on all things Hermès, especially the bags, so tune in to Fashion Hunters to have him show you exactly how to spot a fake.
If the lady with the faux Birkin paid real money for that bag, stand by for the fireworks and the tears, the cuss words and the denial!
Fashion Hunters airs Tuesdays at 10:30pm/9:30c on Bravo TV.
