DIVORCE, AMERICAN STYLE: Newly single women will descend on the Mondrian Soho hotel in New York this weekend for The Divorcée Sale in order to liquidate designer bags, baubles and fashions from their once-married lives. The concept is the brainchild of Jill Alexander, a veteran of Tory Burch, Barneys New York and Plein Sud, who started the traveling consignment sale as a way for divorcées to turn their Chanel, Dior and Prada into cash as they wade back into single life. Consignors receive 30 percent of the proceeds, Alexander’s company receives 45 percent and the remaining 25 percent is donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
