Whimsical Wardrobe Boutique, formerly The Vintage Valet has been bringing fashion curbside in Pittsburgh since 2013. Inside the truck shoppers will find feminine, romantic and whimsical apparel and accessories focusing on details such as ruffles, lace, crochet pleats and embroidery.
I came up with the idea of starting a fashion truck in the Fall of 2012 while I was a student at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.I have been in the retail industry for 20 years (16 of them in Retail Management) taught as an Adjunct instructor for 3 years at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in the Fashion Department and was the secretary of The Fashion Group International (FGI ) Pittsburgh Provisional Chapter.
To Collaborate with small business owners and encourage women to shop local.
How: By Bringing Fashion Curbside, Whimsical Wardrobe Boutique is challenging the retail status quo while building relationships with other entrepreneurs and empowering a sense of community.
