Copious Partners With "Brad, Brad World" Star Brad Goreski and Expands Marketplace to Menswear and Art

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 2, 2012) - Copious, the social marketplace to buy and sell the things you love, today launched men's and art categories, adding to its current selection of women's fashion and accessories. As part of the launch, celebrity stylist and Bravo's "It's a Brad, Brad World" star Brad Goreski is selling men's clothing, bags and accessories from his closet on Copious, with initial proceeds going to The Trevor Project and Dogs Without Borders. Copious has hundreds of thousands of users, and has sold tens of thousands of items.

New Copious categories include men's vintage, new and closet items, as well as art featuring photography, home decor and design. As part of the launch of the men's category, Brad Goreski has signed on with Copious to sell items from his closet, including jeweled Prada Spazzolato lace-ups, Christian Dior leather jackets, and Calvin Klein suits.

"Yes, I have way too many men's and women's clothes, but that's not why I decided to list my closet on Copious," said Brad Goreski, celebrity stylist and star of Bravo TV Series "It's a Brad, Brad World." "My goal with everything I do in fashion is to showcase each person's unique style, and Copious celebrates individual expression. I'm proud that the proceeds from my sale will go to two causes I care deeply about: The Trevor Project and Dogs Without Borders."

"We believe the one-size-fits-all retail model is broken, and we're looking to reinvent the marketplace experience to make it unique to every person -- their interests, tastes and style," said Jonathan Ehrlich, co-founder at Copious. "Expanding our focus to menswear and art is a natural next step, and will allow us to reach a new, broad group of users who are looking for a better way to discover, buy and sell items online."

Copious uses the power of social networks like Facebook and Twitter to build custom shopping experiences for each individual who uses the platform. Each user's feed is tailored to their tastes and preferences, and gets more personalized as they use the site. To sign up to shop and sell on Copious today, visit www.copious.com.
