Beigeblond Salon and Most Everything Vintage have come together to create Couve Couture, Spring Fashion Show. 2014 will be our biggest show yet featuring 11 designers and 90+models. Every aspect of Couve Couture is about Vancouver and SW Washington from designers to models, hair stylists to make-up artists, food, artists, videographers, photographers and sponsors. 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 for the night, but, we also get to support our community and local businesses. By choosing local businesses and individuals to be a part of Couve Coutue, 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.
Couve Couture Spring ’14 will showcase alumni designers; Seth Aaron (two-time Project Runway winner), Special Guest Bryce Black (Project Runway season 9 finalist), Dawn Elise, Kelsey Jennrich, Lydia Wagner, Stephanie Lynn of Sweet Spot Skirts and Alisa Ann of Most Everything Vintage. Joining these fabulous talents will be the winners of our November ‘live’ Designer Auditions; Carlie Bailes, Caryn Stockwell of Second Star Design, Kate Beeman and winner of our Couve Couture Junior Designer Scholarship, Nike Pappas.
Couve Couture Fall ’12 Fashion Show was a great success, selling out of tickets (250) before posters went up around town. We knew we needed to grow and found the perfect space in the Gravitate (formerly Koplans) building for our Spring ’13 show. This location allowed for us to have more designers, models, catered food and 575 attendees in the first level and an upper location for a VIP after-show event giving participants the opportunity to meet the designers, see the clothes and accessories up-close with a 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 has been finding a larger space downtown giving us the ability to hold 1,000+ people. We are having to get creative and think a little outside the box. We keep reminding ourselves that this is a ‘good’ problem. We are thrilled to announce that Couve Couture Spring Fashion Show ’14 will be held at The Red Lion Hotel ~ Vancouver at the Quay. We are thrilled with how perfect this location will be for the show. The staff has been wonderful to work with and their desire to promote local business is incredible. The Red Lion Hotel ~ Vancouver at the Quay will be our premier sponsor for this fashionable celebration.
