NEW YORK, NY-- eBay has the pulse of the fashion market because, "It's probably the only place that a person could come to and really see the breadth and depth of style at their fingertips," says Constance White, Style Director for eBay.


Yesterday, Andy met up with White, a former fashion writer for the New York Times,  who explained that eBay is a reflection of real-time fashion trends.  The top trend of the moment according to traffic on eBay plaid, leather jackets, and the rocker-chic look.

In addition, eBay has recently launched a line of mobile boutiques to appear in 13 cities this holiday season.  The 5,500 square feet New York pop-up store will be open today until November 27th and has already been visited by the likes of Kim Kardashian, actress and avid eBay seller. 

In the latter half of the video, White shows us some styles in Kim's eBay store, including some from her own collection.  Some of the proceeds from Kim Kardashian's sales will go to charities, including the Dream Foundation

Online or in store, eBay shoppers can donate to a charity of their choice at checkout and eBay will match
the final donation up to $200,000.  At the 57th Street location, it
will match every purchase dollar-for-dollar, up to an additional
$200,000.

Check here for White's interview with Narciso Rodriguez on his upcoming eBay collection.
