Marie Blanchard – the Founder and Chief Executive Officer – had an affinity for collecting rare designer handbags. Her hobby laid the seeds for the inception of DBE.
She recalled, “Right before the time of Covid, my husband and I discussed the variety of bags I owned and how knowledgeable I was about designer bags. We came up with the idea of creating a platform that brought buyers and sellers together on a global scale.”
Marie Blanchard laughed, commenting on her bag-collecting hobby, “I have more bags than I would like to admit. Some may call it an addiction, but I consider it a healthy habit.” One of her favorite quotes about bags is ‘My biggest fear is when I die, my husband will sell my bags for what I told him they cost!’
The mechanism of Designer Bag Exchange
Her DBE platform is quite different from working concepts like Farfetch or Rebag. DBE does not purchase products nor carry inventory. Bag owners who want to sell their designer bags on DBE can simply create an account by providing email addresses and answering a few questions. They would then be prompted to upload 8 to 10 high-quality images. After reading and accepting the platform’s terms, they are ready to go.
DBE also highlights upcoming new talented bag designers such as Razabra.
Designers, high-end boutiques, and luxury consignment stores can showcase their products on DBE by creating a vendor account.
