Authentication

Everything is real, for real. We pride ourselves on being one of the best authenticators of luxury fashion. Our hybrid team of experts, both in-house and external, are very thorough and work tirelessly to make sure that no counterfeit item will ever set foot on our website

Once an item is submitted, our authenticator Graham Wetzbarger, based in New York, will analyse the high-resolution images and compare them with real items, to then green-light the piece and officially authenticate it. One of the world's leading experts in the booming authenticated resale sector, Wetzbarger's passion for luxury lead him on a career path never forged before. His unique experiences and insight keep his consultancy firm, Luxury Appraisals & Authentication, in high demand from analysts, resale platforms, and the media. Grateful for his success, Graham donates much of his time to The Costume Society of America, Marque Mentor, and the Pratt Institute Alumni Association helping to shape the next generation of experts, scholars, and creatives.

As a double safety measure, once the item is received at Her-Age headquarters, our in-house team of experts will physically check the item to confirm the previous authentication.
If the product is eligible*, you can even receive a certificate of authenticity along with a letter signed by Graham through the Virgo App. As we told you, we’re very thorough. The authenticity certificate is protected in the blockchain through the app, so with us you have the guarantee that everything is real, for real.

Please notice that if you’re in doubt about the authenticity of your piece, we recommend you use our “AUTHENTICATE ONLY” service before officially submitting the item. It’s fast and easy, and it will avoid headaches along the way. If we receive a fake item at our headquarters, we are allowed to withhold it to avoid the circulation of counterfeit items.
