Grand Opening, May 7th 1:00 – 6:00pm!
Vicky and Riko (shown to the left) opened the Couturist online. After a year, they tested the water with a couple pop up shops and retained their February location (on Robson St. near Thurlow). The store soft-launched on April 24th.
Couture is defined as high fashion, hand-made clothing (typically for women). However, the “…Couturist strives to bring affordable luxury from around the world.” Their motto is: Contemporary, Chic and Comfortable.
They offer clothing from Los Angeles, Europe and Australia, as well as sunglasses from Italy & France. Since they are a specialty boutique you’ll rarely see someone on the street wearing the same outfit. Click Couturist.ca to view the full range of their offerings.
Half United, a necklace collection uses bullet casings as the theme of their design. “It symbolizes the FIGHT against global hunger. For every product purchased, Half United gives HALF of all of profits to feed children in need!”
The event will have a DJ, a media wall and a handheld Instagram frame (large enough for four people). They will serve bites & nibbles, juice and non alcoholic beverages. A couple contests are being planned.
Enjoy the event and try on that “must have” outfit!
