CR founder, Elizabeth Kott, sits down w/ Racked LA :
Born in LA but raised in Michigan, Closet Rich founder Elizabeth Kott moved back to Cali after graduating from Michigan State. It was during her time with Rachel Zoe, where she helped launch The Zoe Report, that she realized that fashion girls acquire a lot of stuff. Not being a huge fan of eBay, she wished there was a service for those in-the-know to sell their pre-loved merch. Now, there is.
Kott launched Closet Rich, her online consignment store aimed at the fashion elite, with three product criteria: 1) quality, 2) if her customers will like it and 3) if she likes it. ("It’s this really hard system of, if I think it’s cool," she explains.) Back in August, Kott also began writing and filming Closet Rich comedic sketches that have been a big hit over at Funny or Die. Of course, you can shop everything in the video. Fashion and laughs? You’re welcome.
