Guests mingled over glasses of cocktail drinks and canapes at the opening of the ultra-modern couture and furniture store, Trish O Couture located on Karimu Ikotun Street Victoria Island. The imposing white building stood in its resplendent glory as models strutted the white runway to showcase some of the pieces in the summer collection of Trish O Couture.
A combination of luxury furniture and bespoke female dresses, the new store is a complete lifestyle store for the total woman with taste for classy and quality living space and fabric.
The ground floor is devoted to exclusive hand and machine-made statement pieces. Guests moved from one row of neatly hung dresses to another looking at the pieces on display. Sincerely, Trish O Couture’s pieces were edgy, eclectic and tailor-made to suit the body needs of plus-size and petite women.
After taking a tour of the ground floor, I could tell that Trish O loves to work with all manner of ornaments and she fancies working with all kinds of embellishments. She has made many women look good in her pieces.
Trish O tells me she is taking her business to the next level with the new showroom. “I am excited about the new space,” she says. “It is a dream come true. We are moving to another phase of our business and we are super excited about that.”
Her bold move to combine fashion and furniture speaks to the new direction in interior furnishing and fashion, as retailers are taking the concept of lifestyle space to a new level.
“We want a total store where people can get fashion pieces and furniture that match their lifestyle,” she explains further. “It is an idea we have toyed with for some time now and we are happy it has come to fruition. We are making a statement and giving people an alternative to what a store should be.”
Truly, Trish O has redefined the concept of store with the new retail space. The upper floor boasts of posh interior furnishings made of classic colours from black, white, gold to purple. There are exquisite sofas with matching throw pillows, coffee tables, cabinets, dining tables and chairs, dressing tables and more.
To have an intimate experience, it is best you visit the new store!
