Ready-to-wear clothing from high end designers at affordable prices has been around before, but what is different about this collection is that the public is the one making the choice as to what items are manufactured and made available for purchase rather than a fashion editor and a store buyer. According to Derek, By letting the public choose allows fashion to be exciting and relevant in the moment, it also allows for him to connect with his audience and reach new customer directly.

On eBay each dress is shown on a model and then to view the dress from each angle there is a video that you can view to see how the clothing moves and wears on a live person verses just having still images of different angles of the dress.  This can help potential buyers see what the dress is really like and whether they will make the purchase for themselves. It is a great way to interact with your customers and make sure they are getting the products they like best.
