Fashion Hunters was a reality TV show that aired on Bravo from September to December 2011. The show centered around the daily operations of Second Time Around, a high-end designer consignment store located in New York City. The show was hosted by shop owners Jason Vendryes and Ambria Miscia, who were known for their expertise in fashion and their ability to spot one-of-a-kind pieces that were sold in the store.

The show followed the store owners, as well as their employees, as they went about their daily business of buying and selling designer fashion items. The fashion hunting was perhaps the most exciting part of the show, as the employees scoured high-end consignment shops and garage sales for designer clothing, handbags, and shoes that were in excellent condition. Once they found an item they thought would sell, they would bring it back to the store to be authenticated and priced for resale.

The show was similar to other reality TV shows about fashion, such as Project Runway, but instead of featuring designers creating new fashion lines, Fashion Hunters was focused on the behind-the-scenes operations of the fashion industry. The employees of Second Time Around were often seen analyzing fashion trends and discussing the merits of specific fashion items, which made the show interesting for fashion enthusiasts.

One of the most interesting aspects of the show was seeing how the shop owners and employees valued different fashion items. Some items were valued for their historical significance, while others were valued for their high-quality fabrics and construction. The show also highlighted the importance of branding in the fashion industry and how having the right label could make or break a sale.

Another interesting part of the show was the interaction between the shop owners and employees. Jason and Ambria were often shown coaching their employees on how to spot a high-quality piece of clothing or negotiate a good deal with a seller. They also discussed how to market specific items to attract buyers who were looking for unique fashion pieces.

In addition to the daily operations of the store, the show also featured some behind-the-scenes drama between the employees. There were arguments over who got to work the most desirable shifts and disagreements over how much commission each employee should receive. While this drama wasn't the focus of the show, it did add an extra layer of interest for viewers.

Overall, Fashion Hunters was an interesting and informative show for anyone interested in fashion or the operations of the fashion industry. The show was well-produced and provided insight into the world of high-end consignment stores. While the show only aired for one season, it remains a valuable resource for anyone looking to learn more about the fashion industry.

Fashion Hunters is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (11 episodes). The series first aired on October 4, 2011.
