Couve Couture 2021

Model: Riley Anne Harrison

Well, tomorrow would have been our rescheduled date for our show. It’s been a season of so many unknowns for everybody. We would have never thought that COVID-19 would cancel every event, big and small.

Fingers crossed we will start planning for an April 2021 show this winter. Hopefully by January we will have hope of normalcy in our lives.

Until then, we truly wish you health, safety, happiness and fashion outside of sweatpants and yoga pants!

Designer Auditions for ’19 Fashion Show

We are excited to announce that we have started to plan Couve Couture 2019. This runway show will take place in April 2019 in downtown Vancouver WA.
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!

With our previous five shows we have planned the show and location first and then found our designers. 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.
