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!
