What is Trust Tree?
Trust Tree Productions exists to empower women through purposeful action. Founded as a multi-platform lifestyle brand, Trust Tree creates community through storytelling and events catalyzing a tribe of women to change the world.
We believe when women gather, great things happen. We know the journey can be lonely. We see you. Our stories matter and they reflect insights and inspiration, barriers and bruises, loneliness and love. Our lives are more than one or two events. Our lives must reflect the mosaic of messiness between our milestones.
We are committed to honoring our history, creating places for connections and to lifting women to higher ground (thank you Madonna!). From collaborative and creative spaces, a social fight club, films documenting trailblazing women and rad merchandise you can proudly proclaim your membership, Trust Tree intends on being where women are as we listen and we share,
Our perspective challenge us to evolve. Join us as we lift each other.

In Memory of Jamie Wyatt Miller February 29, 1976 – May 29, 2018
Jaime was born in Seattle and passed away in Vancouver. In between, she lived her life to the fullest, and inspired most everyone who came into her vicinity.
She left behind her husband of 20 years, Andy; her two beautiful children, Alex and Jillian; her loving parents, Dan and Janis; her brother, Dan and his family; grandmother, Vi Beslow; along with in-laws, brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews and a whole tribe of great friends.
Jaime was the first to volunteer, the last to leave any party and she had an uncanny gift of being able to make everyone feel like the most important person in the room.
She was proud to have graduated from Columbia River High School and Washington State University.
She enjoyed a diverse career working for her Dad’s business Atlantic & Pacific Freightways along with times working with her Mom at LPL Financial, her cousin at WW Payments Systems and her friends at Why Racing. Jaime also helped raise funds for her community by helping with CAMEO for a number of years.
She put her heart and soul into everything that she did. She lived every day, with hearts full of love, humor, and lots of color.
Jaime was such an incredible volunteer of Couve Couture and we miss her dearly. This year we celebrate her life and story with our upcoming show. I am sure she will be looking down from above enjoying the moment and cheering on our local creators.
The ‘Divine’ ladies have been attending our show for years and this is the first year for
Divine Consign to sponsor Couve Couture. We are so appreciative of their support and all that they do for SW Washington. If you haven’t been to their retail space, you should definitely visit! Located in Downtown Vancouver with a 10,000 sq. ft. showroom with beautiful, gently used home furnishings along with b. divine ladies boutique located in the basement. Operated by volunteers with proceeds donated to community charities. Divine Consign (est. 1997) is a non-profit 501c3.
THE HISTORIC TRUST
We are so excited to use two Historic Trust Fort Vancouver buildings for two-day event.
Fashion Show: Fort Vancouver Artillery Barracks. Once the home of the United States Army Infantry. The east side (where the show will be) was renovated in 2011.
Fashion Marketplace: Fort Vancouver Red Cross Building. Once the official headquarters for the Red Cross in Vancouver and completely restored in 2003.
We are thankful to The Historic Trust and especially Debbie for working with us to make these 2 days special and memorable!
WE are thrilled to have 7SEVEN as our hair care sponsor for Couve Couture 2019! What an incredible line! Hair ‘art’ is such a part of each designers ‘look’ for the runway. Can’t wait to see what our hair stylists create on our 28 models for the show. Here is a little bit about about 7SEVEN Haircare…
“We want to give you your most beautiful hair.
It’s been that way since the early days when our Seattle-based SEVEN salon quickly grew from a crew of nine stylists to a full, thriving team of 65. As we expanded, we outgrew the heavy, sticky products that had been designed to please a small audience of professionals needing rigid, photo-ready styles. We wanted a change, and so did our clients.
We wanted touchable, luxurious, naturally three-dimensional hair. We wanted products that made our hair look great and feel great.
So we created them––products with high-performance formulations that work for stylists, but also make it easy to create healthy, elegant, lightweight looks at home.
We are continually crafting, testing and refining formulas to create products you love to use. Whether creating ocean-kissed waves, chic chignons, or glossy curls – our products give you everything you need to let your unique beauty shine through.”

Our focus is of Coffee as Culinary from crop to cup.
Soil, smoke, and steam.
Through careful sourcing, Compass acquires unroasted coffee from the top 0.1% of the coffee market. It is carefully, intently roasted 6lbs (or less) at a time. Small batches make it easier to control quality and freshness. We usually roast 5 days a week.
When the coffee reaches our shop, it is in the hands of intensely and thoroughly trained baristas, who are excited and proud of what we are able to accomplish.
Compass Coffee has been helping fuel our models and crew since 2013.
Oblique Foto has been with us since our second show in 2013 and has since helped provide so much of the photography to promote our show. Thrilled to have Alain Briand on our team as he brings so much talent to our show. Alain is our show photography liaison and has created an incredible photographic runway team.
Bobby P. Productions has also been with us since our second show in 2013. What a difference it is to have a professional video team! If you would like to see a video from our last show, you can visit the following link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC-O2NIWZjY

We (Brett from Beigeblond Salon and Alisa from Most Everything Vintage) started Couve Couture with the idea of bringing local fashion creators (designers, hair, make-up, nails, models, photographers, etc.) together to create an amazing experience showcasing local, SW Washington, talent. We had no idea that this idea would be accepted so quickly and enthusiastically. To sell out of tickets before the posters went up for our first show was wonderful. Every moment of the evening was incredible and we consider it an honor to be the ‘dreamers’ of the event.
We knew that we had to grow, hopefully double our attendee numbers and designers. This meant bringing on more help in planning since we are not only owners of our businesses… but operators as well. The caliber of people that came to us after the first show, offering their volunteer services was pretty amazing.
We would also like to thank our local media who have helped share Couve Couture; The Columbian, The Reflector, Vancouver Downtown Association, Camas Life and The Kiggins Theatre.
Alisa I am so excited for you and all the contributors to this spring fashion show! So glad I am in town for this event after missing your first one. Hopefully your article in the Columbian today will spark even more early ticket sales…AND it was right below an article named…”$20 in my pocket: Celebs hit the thrift shops”!
Yay Sharon! So glad you get to come to our Spring Show. It is going to be amazing!
