Until I went to accept the nomination in person, I honestly thought it was a mistake that I got an email telling me Consign Couture is nominated for a Portland Fashion & Style Award. BUT IT’S TRUE!!! And I am so incredibly honored. I have always loved the creative things Portland does to foster independent designers and stores, and to generate recognition for both. I have watched many of my favorite shops be nominated and win over the years - places like Adorn, Folly, Amelia, Altar, and more. Not until I was looking at the category for which we are nominated (Best Boutique SW) did I even realize that we are the only consignment shop! The rest are regular new retail. I am SO blown away that we are being considered for this; and it is amazing to be able to share the news with our loyal customers and employees.
Wanna help us win?? Part of it is juried by judges, but the public vote counts as ONE FULL JUDGE VOTE, so pleeeeeeaaaaase vote for us! It’s easy:
