AT CONFIDENTIAL COUTURE, AUTHENTICITY IS THE KEY FACTOR IN DETERMINING PRODUCT LISTINGS. THE PROCESS AND STANDARDS ARE NOT ONLY THOROUGH & STRINGENT BUT FOLLOW INDUSTRY-APPROVED STANDARDS. WE TAKE IMMENSE CARE BY DRAWING ON THE EXPERIENCE OF OUR IN-HOUSE CATEGORY SPECIALISTS, WORKING WITH OUTSIDE PRODUCT EXPERTS, AND IN SOME CASES BY PARTNERING WITH SELECTED LUXURY BRANDS AND VETTED THIRD PARTY LUXURY RESELLERS OR RETAIL STORES.

WE DRAW OUT DOCUMENTATION TO FURTHER PROCESS AUTHENTICITY WHICH INCLUDES UP TO 40 IMAGES OF EVERY DETAIL, STITCH, STAMP OF THE PRODUCT AND IS SUBMITTED TO OUR AUTHENTICATING PARTNERS BASED IN USA. UPON THE FINAL APPROVAL OF ALL OUR PARTNERS, THE PRODUCT IS MADE AVAILABLE FOR SALE ON SITE.
