Many of you know that I co-produce Couve Couture Fashion Show. We started back in 2012 and this will be our sixth show. Hard to believe that we are 9 days away! Not only am I producing but also re-designing a collection to go down the runway (Alisa Ann). This years will be 1920’s theme as I take items that have been on my racks or unwearable from my back room and give them a new ‘look.’
This year you don’t get just one day of fashion but TWO!
PROUD TO ANNOUNCE…..we have partnered up with Night Market Vancouver TO BRING YOU… Couve Couture Fashion Marketplace the following day, April 14th, 11-3 at the Fort Vancouver Red Cross Building.
But First….. Our Couve Couture Spring Fashion Show!
Saturday April 13, 2019
This years show will be at the Historic Fort Vancouver Artillery Barracks in downtown Vancouver WA. 600 East Hatheway Road, Vancouver WA 98661
We have a wonderful group of six designers from right here in Washington State. Ranging in age from 14 to 67, we think you will be very proud of our local fashion creators. To add to our incredible mix of designers, The Fort Vancouver Costume Department will be sending their hand sewn creations from 1825-1945.

This is an all ages show.
We encourage dressing up for the show.
This year a portion of show proceeds will be donated to our local Share of Vancouver which serves the hungry and homeless within our community. This year they will be celebrating 40 years of service.
Finger food and drink available for purchase (cash bar). Must show ID if wanting alcoholic beverages.
How to choose a seat:
We had to get creative with our runway which is an oval shape. The runway show will be throughout two rooms as the models walk through the panel doorways that run through the center dividing the two rooms. Here is the seating/runway map for each room.
As you go on-line to purchase tickets you will see 4 maps:
Northside matinee and Northside evening
Southside matinee and Southside evening.
You will need to decide which room you want to be in and if you want the matinee or evening show. Definitely easier to view on your computer rather than your phone.
Purple star is where the models will pause and pose.
Red line is the runway.
Black circles are poles.
This show costs a lot of money to put on and takes hundreds of hours of planning. We are so thankful for our loyal and supportive sponsors, our volunteers who do everything for the love of fashion and community, to our models, hair and makeup teams, to our press who spread the love of Couve Couture and to you our ticket buyers. Thank you!!!
