Welcome to Couve Couture

Beigeblond Salon and Most Everything Vintage have come together to create Couve couture Spring Fashion Show. 2015 will be our biggest show yet featuring 10 designers and 100+ models. Every aspect of Couve Couture is about Vancouver and SW Washington from designers to models, hair stylists to make-up artists, food and drink, musicians, photographers, video, lighting and all of our sponsors. To make this year extra special we have added some ‘Special Guest’ designers. Couve Couture is truly a visual celebration of the extraordinary talent from this area. Not only do we have the wonderful opportunity to celebrate fashion as we bring it to life on the runway, but we also get to support our community and local businesses. By choosing local business and individuals to be a part of Couve Couture, all the money spent on this show goes back into our community. As small business owners, we truly believe in and try to live this concept.

HISTORY: Fall ‘2012 Fashion Show was a great success selling out of tickets (250) before posters went up. We knew we needed to grow and found the perfect save in the Gravitate building (formerly Koplans) for our Spring ’13 show. This location allowed for us to have more designers, models, catered food & drink and 575 attendees on the first level and an upper location for a VIP after-show event. Here, participants were given the opportunity to meet the designers, see the clothes and accessories up-close with the potential to purchase and to ‘live’ in the moment of the event with music, locally created desserts and a little bubbly for toasting. We sold out once again.
Our biggest challenge in planning for Spring ’14 was finding a larger space in the downtown area giving us the ability to hold close to 1,000 people. We kept reminding ourselves that ‘this is’ a ‘good’ problem. We were thrilled to hold our Spring show at The Red Lion Hotel ~ Vancouver at the Quay Ballroom. Another sold out show. We have looked at parking lots and structures, tents and parks to allow for a bigger Spring ’15 show. We found something even better… The Historic Academy. We will be taking over the whole building allowing for four very special shows ranging from 75 people to 250 people. Attendees will be able to watch the show in the room of their choice; Ballroom, Chapel, Prohibition Room and Hallway allowing for more attendees. We are even going for the US record of longest runway! 175 feet and that is only the first half of the show.
