City boutique wants my stuff!

I have just been approached via Etsy by a boutique fashion store in Sydney! I am staggered ….

Dear Rita,
Amazing store! Your silk garments are absolutely gorgeous!

I just wanted to reach out to see if you would be interested in selling your collection in my Sydney Boutique? I own PINKO BOHEME in Avalon Beach NSW and specialise in lifestyle labels from Byron Bay, Australia and the USA. The brands I carry include Arnhem Clothing, Free People, Camilla, Goddess of Babylon, Bird & Kite, Amuse Society and Kate Spade NY Giftware.

I also run an instore initiative whereby I support up & coming designers by showcasing their collections in store on a consignment basis. I have worked with NIZETI, Rosie & Minx, The Dreamer Label, Folksong, The Enchanted Life and LOVE HATE vs HERE on consignment and achieved amazing results! If you may be interested please be sure to reach out as it would be such a pleasure to showcase your range.

Much Love

Course Outline:
Take …
A garment out of your wardrobe ,which may be out of date, or something you found at an opportunity shop. Something about the garment appeals to you, the colour, the texture or the feel of it. But you would not wear it as it is. It needs something…..
Learn how to turn it into a unique trendy wearable art piece.

Enjoy wearing something very different which has been your own creation.

Includes a visit to the local opshop!
