Accessories Design ’02

Eliza DeRocker is a fashion stylist who owns three consignment stores in upstate New York, including one that specializes in never-worn wedding dresses. About a tenth of wedding dresses that are purchased haven’t been worn, she explains, either because the wedding was canceled or the bride bought an extra. She styles her customers from head to toe, and sometimes dresses the bride on location. “I want my own reality show,” she says. “You would not believe what we go through every day.” DeRocker plans to open five more stores in the next two years.
