If you’re a fan of Schitt’s Creek fashions, you’re in luck. Next week, some of the looks from the show will be available for purchase. The best part? There’s a giveaway going on now where you can get first dibs.
As in many television shows today, the wardrobe styling on Schitt’s Creek is important to character development. Show creator Dan Levy told us as much in his Out cover story, out this month.
“For us, I don’t want the characters to constantly have to tell the audience, ‘We used to be rich.’” he said, referencing Patricia Field’s use of clothing in Sex and the City as an inspiration point. “So the most effective device we had sometimes was their wardrobe — it’s a constant reminder they came from money.”
To tell that story, some of the show’s characters, namely Moira Rose, are quite ostentatiously dressed. And others, while maybe not wearing a fascinator, are undeniably chic. Levy, who also stars as David Rose in the show, has sometimes even taken the task of styling on himself, tracking down pieces from Balenciaga, DSquared2, and Jil Sander. And now, some of those pieces are going on consignment.
The Canada-based shop VSP Consignment is selling over 800 pieces, straight from the show’s set. Among the labels are Proenza Schouler, Comme Des Garcons, Isabel Marant, Mulger and more according to Fashion Magazine. And though there’s a lot of pieces from the women of the cast, there’s going to be some from the men as well; David’s cheetah print Saint Laurent sweater has made it into the haul.
The price point begins at $150 and goes up from there, with “an average price point of $398.” A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network.
The consignment shop tapped local drag queen Miss Moco to model for the partnership.
For those who are really burning for a few pieces, the store is hosting a giveaway. The prize: a $500 gift card and early access to the collection. To win, entrants must follow the store’s Instagram account and share their favorite character or moment to their own personal Instagram story while using specified hashtags and handles. The winner will be notified September 30
The collection goes on sale to the public at 12pm EST on October 3.
