About The Chic Selection
Created in 2014 by a woman entrepreneur with a passion for fashion and luxurious creations, The Chic Selection was the first Belgian platform for buying and selling authentified Vintage articles. Each member of the circle could sell their past impulse acquisitions and fall for new ones.
In 2017, a great evolution in the pre-owned luxury market as well as the arrival of a multitude of new players, prompted the founder to adapt her original concept to create the platform where selling is exclusively dedicated to the professional vintage boutiques. This would give them access to a sphere used to be reserved only to the existing colossi of this internet market business.
Henceforth, The Chic Selection is today the platform solely gathering luxury items from consignment boutiques. Those are carefully selected based on precise criteria and the quality of their offering.
In 2017, The founder created The Chic Selection inc in the USA where she settled her new headquarters but still maintaining its European branch.
The evolution of The Chic Selection was also and mainly motivated by its founder’s determination to growing the company by incorporating essential human values in wich she deeply believes such Unity, Sustainability, Authenticity and Charity.
1 - HELPING THE SMALL CONSIGNMENT BOUTIQUES WITH NO INTERNET VISIBILITY TO EXIST: offering the opportunity to all Vintage local market boutiques who can’t afford to run their proper eshop to benefit from the The Chic Selection platform to broaden their visibility in Europe and across the Atlantic and increase their profits.
2 - FIGHTING CONTERFEIT BY BEING UNITED: when purchasing from a professional merchant for whom authenticity is directly linked to his reputation, plus the transit of the purchased article through The Chic Selection offices for a second authentication before being sent, will seriously limit the risk to encounter a fake article.
3 - COMMITTING INTO THE REDUCTION OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT AND TAKING A STANCE IN A DURABLE ECONOMY: by choosing Greengeeks - leader of the green hosting - as partner as well as using exclusively ecological packing methods and encouraging all The Chic Selection Boutique partners to follow the movement.
4 - DONATING A PORTION OF ITS COMMISSION: on each and every sold article to an organization supporting the ones in need and hopefully be able to create our own Fundation.
« With The Chic Selection we set our sights on the future, we look at today with a viewpoint of tomorow. Far more than a second hand eshop, it’s an innovative way of seing the world and participating in its positive growth with ALWAYS the final aim to fully satisfy your inner fashionista »
