CLOSET CASE: Want that obscure object of desire before everyone else has it? Closetista.com is an HSN for emerging designers that makes its debut Monday.

Since the site caters to those who like to be ahead of the trends, limited quantities of select items will be available before the season, so customers can wear spring 2011 while it’s still fall 2010. Prices will range from $15 for earrings to $650 for coats, but most items run about $200, said founder and president Michael LaRocque, who also created accessories photo-sharing service TweetMyStyle. Married to fashion editor Jenny Feldman, he became interested in fashion while creating interactive video for start-ups such as music site Jango.com.

Ten percent of the revenue from the first week’s sales will go to charities The Smile Train, MS Society and Dress for Success. Hosts include co-star of MTV’s “Laguna Beach” Morgan Olsen, former Loeffler Randall staffer Brooke Sirianni and actress-journalist Eboni Booth.
