Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT COUTUREDossier!
Three questions with Yulia Omelich, owner of COUTUREDossier.
I co-founded my business with my husband because I have a passion for fashion and I wanted to share that with our clients. I wanted women to know there is a way to own and love authentic Hermes, Chanel and Louis Vuitton without paying the hefty retail price tag. I also wanted to give them a way to avoid shopping fast fashion, by instead investing their money into high-quality fashion with value. The added benefit? Our clients feel good when they shop with us because they know the environmental benefit of shopping resale is worth it, and they are making a sustainable choice.
Finish this sentence in regard to your business: I wish I could...
I wish I could stop fast fashion because it is a major polluter and an unnecessary one as well. Fashion is a choice, and that choice shouldn’t use slave-like labor, dump chemicals into our ecosystem and pile up high in landfills.
What is your best-selling product/service?
Our best selling products are designer handbags because our clients have access to a unique collection of gorgeous handbags and they are confident that everything in our inventory is strictly authenticated. In a world filled with fake and counterfeit bags, our business provides clients a safe haven for authentic items.
We would like to nominate Le Penguin because their authentic French cuisine is beyond delicious, their service is outstanding and they are active members of the Greenwich community.
