After years of flirting with living on the West Coast, Christian Leone has finally made the move to set up a Los Angeles outpost for Vaunte, the luxury consignment e-tailer he founded last year with Leah Park in New York.
“We have a lot of people buying here. People just also have great closets. They have more space, so they are able to buy more. In New York, people edit more, and in L.A., I think they edit less and that is great for us. We go into closets, and they have so much stuff,” said Leone, formerly vice president of brand relations at Gilt Groupe.
