Fashion can exist responsibly. We know that it’s possible to love fashion and care about the planet. We use the power of consignment not only to extend the life of clothing, keep textile waste out of the landfill and lessen the impact of the fashion industry on the environment, but to create community around a shared love of fashion and respect for the earth and its resources. We believe that “loved clothes last” and that high quality pieces that are well taken care of are the key to a sustainable wardrobe. Environmental sustainability is a guiding value in all of our operations. Curated sustainability resources are available here.
OPEN TO ALL
You are limited edition. Consign Couture is a welcoming and inclusive space to shop and feel celebrated.
We are committed to selling only authentic items. Designer pieces go through authenticity verification by our staff and by outside verification services.
Consign Couture first opened its doors in the St. John’s neighborhood of Portland, OR in 2011. The store moved to Lake Oswego in 2018 and eventually to Multnomah Village, where we have been warmly and embraced by the vibrant community. We know we have found the perfect spot for Consign Couture!
