Narciso Rodriguez = affordable?? Not until now!
The Cuban designer’s name made front pages nationwide after dressing Michelle Obama in her red and black election-night dress. I vividly remember scratching my head in contemplation and eager anticipation that evening as I guessed which designer she was wearing – and then saw his name everywhere the next day.

Yesterday, at his Bryant Park Fashion Week show, Narciso Rodriguez confirmed that eBay will offer a capsule collection of his styles this coming Spring 2010. Did you hear correctly? Yes — the designer whose dresses typically go for $1,800 and up is offering eight styles (3 dresses, 2 tops, a skirt, jacket, and trenchcoat) to be sold on an eBay exclusive store ranging from $75-350. Interestingly, according to the WSJ, the designer has previously shunned the idea of doing collections for stores like H&M or Target, but is now turning over a new leaf.
eBay’s site itself promotes the collection here! **Also, check out these preview sketches:
