Thankful for an incredible show!

Wow! What a great 2019 Couve Couture Fashion Show. Knowing the limitations we have had on space we tried some new ideas. We are thrilled that they worked and are excited to take the Historic Fort Vancouver Artillery Barracks space and maximize it for April 18, 2020! We have some great ideas and look forward to bringing them to life.

For our sponsors (thank you, thank you, thank you) that financially supported us to get this show off the ground, for our volunteers that spent countless hours dreaming and doing, for our designers who brought their dreams to the runway, models who smiled all day, hair and make-up artists who brought designer ideas to fruition, photographers and videographers who told our story… we couldn’t have done this without YOU. And for our attendees that came out to support this show both financially and in applause….. we THANK YOU! It takes a village and we have an incredibly supportive and inspirational village.

We took some of our favorites images captured from the show. To see all the photos you can visit our facebook page.

Our 2020 show is going to be INCREDIBLE!!!! We are so excited to share as the year goes forward. If you or your business would like to be a sponsor of Couve Couture 2020, we are offering half price sponsorships if paid in full by August 1, 2019. E-mail to receive sponsorship options.

We are so excited for our upcoming show!

Show Details:
Saturday April 13, 2019
This years show will be at the Historic Fort Vancouver Artillery Barracks in downtown Vancouver WA.

We have a wonderful group of six designers from right here in Washington State. Ranging in age from 14 to 67, we think you will be very proud of our local fashion creators. To add to the variety of styles, The Fort Vancouver Costume Department will be wearing a collection of pieces they have hand-sewn dating 1825-1945, down the runway.

We will be doing two shows; matinee 3:30 (doors 2:30) and evening 7:30 (doors 6:30).
Ticket Cost:
Matinee standing $15, secondary seating $25, front row seating $40
Evening standing $15, secondary seating $30, front row seating $45
Ticket Link:
Each show will allow for 380 attendees.

A portion of proceeds will be donated to our local Share of Vancouver that helps serve the hungry and homeless in our community. You can learn more about their organization. This April Share will be celebrating 40 years of service.

This is an all ages show.
We encourage dressing up for the show.

Finger food and drink available for purchase (cash bar). Must show ID if wanting alcoholic beverages.

We had to get creative with our runway which is an oval shape. The runway show will be throughout two rooms as the models walk through the panel doorways that run through the center dividing the two rooms. Here is the seating/runway map for each room.
As you go on-line to purchase tickets you will see 4 maps:
Northside matinee and Northside evening
Southside matinee and Southside evening.

You will need to decide which room you want to be in and if you want the matinee or evening show. Definitely easier to view on your computer rather than your phone.

We, Brett Allred, owner of Beigeblond Salon and myself, Alisa Tetreault, owner of Most Everything Vintage have had a busy couple of years growing our businesses and needed some time to breathe and focus. We are back and ready to bring you another exciting fashion show!

We have started planning, and are very excited for this next Couve Couture (April 2019) as we build our show around our designers. Participating designers will be from Washington, along with a couple of guest designers from outside of the state.

We are NOW TAKING APPLICATIONS for Washington (resident) designers. If you, or someone you know, specializes in Couture or Avant-Garde fashion design, please share this exciting news. This is a fantastic opportunity for new talent to be showcased – and we love local talent.

Here we are in 2016. Knowing that our shows have gotten so big, we decided to provide an evening of connections between the designer and the one who would like to wear those creations. This year for Couve Couture, we will be taking over the downtown core during First Friday, April 1, 5-9pm in pop-up shop form. Nine of our alumni designers will be in seven locations. Come meet the designers, have you picture taken with them, get autographs and have the opportunity to purchase one of their creations.

SHOW SPONSORS: We are looking for show sponsors for 2017 Couve Couture Spring Fashion Show. If interested, let us know!

Beigeblond Salon
 and Most Everything Vintage have come together to create Couve couture Spring Fashion Show. 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.

SHOW 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 took over the whole building allowing for four very special shows ranging from 75 people to 250 people. Attendees were able to watch the show in the room of their choice; Ballroom, Chapel, Prohibition Room and Hallway allowing for more attendees. We even went for the US record of longest runway! 175 feet and that was only the first half of the show.
Spring 2016 – We want to build connections between our designers and the many people who love their designs. In lieu of a traditional fashion show, we will be doing a Couve Couture Spring ’16 trunk show/sale. Meet our incredible designers, get autographs, have pictures taken and be able to buy their one-of-a-kind creations. April 1, 2016 – 5-9pm around the downtown core of Vancouver WA. Showcasing alumni designers; Kate Beeman of Origin, Desi Designs, Kelsey Jennrich, Niki Pappas, Shelley Beauchaine, Alisa Ann of Most Everything Vintage, Stephanie Lynn of Sweet Spot Skirts, Portland guest Wendy Ohlendorf and youth designer Kate Miles.
