Portmanteau Giveaway

December 5, 2012

By Gabrielle.

I’m delighted to announce today’s giveaway. I know you’ll love it. The gorgeous shop, Portmanteau, is offering a generous $150 store credit!

Do you know Portmanteau? The shop is the brainchild of Azra, an artistic soul who wanted to shine a light on the designers and creation happening in Bosnia. The Portmanteau collection is ever-evolving and highlights the best of independent Bosnian designers. Fresh ideas, crisp craftsmanship and nothing mass-produced.

I’m over the moon about the idea of focusing on design efforts in the far, and sometimes unsung, corners of the world. Did you know Bosnia had a vibrant design community? Neither did I — until I saw Portmanteau!

If I won, I would be tempted by the square bag in blue, or the tunic with the silk belt. And I don’t know if I can pull it off, but I hope someone snags this gorgeous halter top! Wouldn’t it be amazing for holiday parties?

Visit the high-style collection at Portmanteau and leave a comment below to enter. I’d love to hear what you think of Bosnian design! The winner will be announced on Friday. Good luck!

——

Heather J is the lucky winner. Thanks for playing!

I love the creativity of the lines going everywhere. Okay, not everywhere, they are very well thought out. But each design is so interesting and very creative.

So. many. gorgeous. pieces. Seriously, I think I am in love with that belted tunic and the striped dress and the blue silk dress and coming in at a close second place are the day into evening dress and the blue one arm dress. I don’t know how I would choose if I could only select one!
