We have updated LiveSteveston.com to include more info on things to do, places to see, food and dining, services, and shopping.  In the interest of promoting our local community, we are encouraging local business owners to provide us a write-up on their business to include in our blog.

 

Today we feature Couture Consignment:

 

“Couture Consignment is an ultra hip vintage and couture consignment store located at 3806 Moncton St in the historic Steveston Village.

 

“The store opened with a soft launch in Jan 2010 and a  Grand Opening that occurred just in time for the Vancouver winter Olympics in Feb 2010, that included an official invitation-only party and special promotions.

 

“Couture Consignment and Vintage combines an edited selection of unique vintage women’s clothing and accessories with a selection of new and consigned contemporary pieces.  This eclectic, wearable mix provides one-stop shopping in an intimate boutique setting.  Price points range from $10-14 for a one-of-a-kind locally made bracelet  to $300 for a designer dress from labels like Chloe and Missoni. The store inventory reflects the way women shop today.

“Each piece of clothing, handbag, shoes and accessories has been hand picked and checked thoroughly. Great care has been taken to make sure every hem is mended properly, every zipper is intact and every button is secure. We want each person to receive the highest quality garment possible, you should expect the very best! We love including vintage items in our store! Personally we believe it adds a bit of character and we love that every garment has a history and a life of its own. We take great measures to make sure that every piece is in great condition and we will not sell a garment otherwise.
 

“Nestled in a cozy storefront on Moncton St.,  the store’s atmosphere and selection reflects the owner’s signature blend of eclectic influences.   As a reflection of the owners, RajanPaul's new and independent venture, riffs on the store theme, items are scattered throughout; old hat boxes, top hats, old roller skates, luggage other decorative elements featuring old birdcages, antique furniture all amp up the  lush red and gold decor.

 

“The storefront window showcases Couture Consignments artistic and often themed window displays. The store features vintage and contemporary pieces alongside new and vintage jewelry.  One area features vintage and contemporary dresses, another focuses on jeans, shoes and tops. Many accessories, including jewelry, fascinators and, hats are artistically displayed amongst the store.

 

“From exquisite party dresses and rockabilly clothing, to unique vintage pieces and casual bohemian style. Whether you are looking for California-cool styles or weekend-ready pieces,  Couture Consignment is the store for you!
