Consign Couture specializes in fashionable,
gently worn clothing & accessories for women sized 0 to 22.
Not only does Consign Couture have a physical store located in the historic St. Johns neighborhood of Portland Oregon, we also sell on social media sites which we continue to keep updated with our best new arrivals.
The majority of Consign Couture’s merchandise is repurposed, and the shop itself was built with the same commitment. A movable wall from an art gallery is now a dressing room, flooring was acquired through a local recycling center, the fixtures and clothing racks have been given a second life from previous stores — reinforcing owner Tamara Young’s philosophy that repurposing is always in fashion.
Stop in either in-person, online, or if life proves to be too hectic feel free to contact Consign Couture about a home appointment. Our trained staff can help you identify clothing for consignment and will even help clear out the rest by donating it to local charity.
In 2009, when Tamara bought the building that now houses Consign Couture in Portland’s St. Johns neighborhood, she was deep in a career of corporate advertising. The building was a former auto repair shop and was bought by Tamara to be a space for a side project combining her love of art and photography; never could she have imagined the ways in which the neighborhood and her never-ending pursuit of fashion would inspire a different entrepreneurial-vision. She quickly realized her drive to repurpose fashion as well as her dream of cultivating space for women to work and shop. Soon Consign Couture was established as a melting pot of community, design, mentoring and fashion — an ever evolving space that reflects Young’s creative spirit and impassioned drive.Born in Northern California and raised in a suburb of Portland Oregon, Young studied at the University of Oregon as well as having studied photography at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. With Consign Couture, she hopes to develop a community space within Portland that nurtures self esteem, inspires responsible consumption, and creates a place for neighbors to engage with purposeful design.
