As the co-owner of Decades, Christos Garkinos has turned the Los Angeles-based luxury consignment boutique into an international shopping destination and retail haven for celebrities, stylists and fashionistas. Before venturing into the retail fashion world, Garkinos drew on more than 20 years of experience working in the consumer product and retail industries including Clorox, the Walt Disney Company and US Virgin Megastores. Garkinos' clientele relies on his unmatched talent for sourcing cutting-edge fashion and treasure hunting amidst the world's best closets -- both of which have allowed him to expand his fashion network to include more than 3,500 consigners worldwide. Known as the "Robin Hood of Fashion," Garkinos is regularly tapped by top fashion editors and producers to lend his expertise to their audiences. The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times have repeatedly touted the unique Decades business model and credit Garkinos' cyclopedic fashion savvy and editing eye with the success of the modern consignment business.
