As fashion lovers, we often crave unique items that make us stand out from the crowd.
To our dismay, however, some items are so elusive that they’re almost impossible to find in stores or online – Jennifer Nisan comes to the rescue!
The twenty-nine-year-old mother of four seeks out the most coveted and hard-to-get designer pieces from around the world for celebrities like Shay Mitchell, Cara Delevingne, Dorothy Wang and Annabelle Dexter-Jones who all found her through social media.
During the pandemic, as hard-to-find items became even harder to find, Jennifer Nisan’s fashion buying company Front Row Live thrived
During the pandemic, as hard-to-find items became even harder to find, the professional luxury shopper’s business, Front Row Live, thrived.
Thanks to her ingenuity, determination and drive, Jennifer quickly grew her social media following from 3,000 to over 40,000.
The hunt for fashion’s most sought-after pieces is a 24-hour rush.
“I run a global business and have clients all over the world, so my phone is ringing 24/7,” Jennifer revealed.

With a very small and trusted team, she gets back to her clients in real time, regardless of their geographical location.
While the expert has been asked to buy everything from a Prada bento box with Prada chopsticks to a baby Dior stroller, she says the craziest request she’s ever received was a $15,000 pair of crocodile boots.
“I was in Paris at the time and extremely busy, so I definitely had to jump through hoops to fulfill my client’s request.
Another crazy request was the Fendi DIY baguette kit. Customers poured into my DMs asking me to buy a Fendi bag that was deconstructed.
“The package came with needles and multi-colored thread. The customer had to sew the yarn on the bag himself. It was on the unique side of items I’ve ever had to request.”
While the bag will require some work, it costs a whopping $3,890.

Time is of the essence for Jennifer when she is put on the case. Most of her customers want their items as soon as possible.
“With today’s social media, we’re all so used to instant gratification. I would say this is reflected in people wanting their wants and desires fulfilled quite quickly,” she said.
Add: “But let’s face it…I’m the same.”
“Most of my clients trust me and know that I will always give 120% to make sure I come through for them.
“They’ll check in regularly and ask me for an update, but at the end of the day they know I’m always working to make them happy, and 9/10 times I usually always get through.”

While Jennifer has a great track record, she says the hardest to find items are those from multiple seasons.
“Once in a blue moon the item is just not available and I’m always transparent with the customer and tell them the situation and see if they’re open to me suggesting an alternative.”
Desperate for a pair of Chanel branded wide-leg jeans, Jennifer custom-made the only pair she could find—which was two sizes too big—for her
According to Jennifer, the most sought-after fashion items at the moment are the Louis Vuitton Nano Mochi Speedy, Chanel rain boots, Chanel denim ballerinas and Bottega Veneta Drop earrings.
She cites Chanel’s wide-leg jeans from the luxury house’s spring/summer collection as the hardest item to get her hands on right now.
“I’ve had hundreds of requests for it.”

While desirable fashion varies in price, the most expensive item she ever purchased was a $20,000 Chanel evening dress.
“A client has asked me to buy it to wear to her daughter’s wedding. That was a special moment for me.’
MOST CEEDED ITEMS
Most women have wasted a ridiculous amount of time obsessing over an item they can’t find anywhere.
Jennifer shares a few tips for finding what you’re looking for:
“When shopping online, my top tip is to add things to your wish list and have the website email you when an item is back in stock.
‘You have to be quick. Check the websites from time to time and stay informed.’
When shopping in person, she suggests building a relationship with a store associate and shopping with them consistently.
“They feel valued and always contact you when they receive new items.”

Besides being able to do her job anywhere, there are many benefits to Jennifer’s profession, including seeing collections before they go public.
‘It’s nice to see items before they hit the stores and to see my customers’ reaction when they see the designer pieces for the first time.
“By doing what I do, I have the advantage of accessing designer items much faster than the average person.”
