Watch Fashion Hunters

Fashion Hunters is a short-lived TV show that debuted for one season in October of 2011. The show centers around four New York Fashionistas named Ambria Miscia, Wilson Payamps, Tara Muscarella, and Karina Lepiner. The show itself is 45 minutes long, with around 15 minutes of commercials.

Wilson, Ambria, Tara, and Karina love fashion. They run a store called the Second Time Around and love to find anything new and exciting. That's why when they are in need of new items, they go to New York's most elite and search their homes. Anywhere from their garages, the closets and even the attics of New York's most fashionable and powerful people.

This shop isn't necessarily considered a thrift store. The whole purpose of the store is to find high end designer clothing and put it at a price that people on a budget can afford. For the girls in college, or working as a waitress that can only dream of owning a Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses, it's now affordable to them thanks to the owners of Second Time Around and the people who gave away their old item.

While it's a generous thing to do for people on a budget, it is nowhere near easy for the Second Time Around shop owners to get the items they uncover. They deal with very sassy and demanding clients, usually from the bossy and cultured downtown hipsters, to even the most rich and savvy New York Socialites. It's an adventure and dramatic often details a very emotional experience to sell the most-loved items hidden in New York's high and mighty's closets. Some clients also become customers as they are looking for the new, most popular item, even if it was once owned.

The show ran on Bravo from October 4th,2011 until December 6th,2011.
