Three woman, three backgrounds, one vision.
From the Lone Star state of Texas to the beaches of Santa Barbara, California, Melissa Woodbury- a Fashion entrepreneur, Brook Ashby- a Fine Art Coordinator and Angela Lerche- Event Planner extraordinaire-serendipitously found each other and a deep friendship blossomed. Having shared pillow talks and closets, travels and passions, they realized a dream by combining such backgrounds together to conceive a lifestyle boutique offering quality fashion and art.
The Muse- Marchesa Luisa Casati- a Cotton heir whose fortune allowed her the luxuries of exotic animals as pets, the finest textiles money could buy and the ability to host extravagant parties for Europe’s Aristocratic communities. Her unique look and personality lured the greatest artists, poets, painters and writers of her time to create timeless works in her name.
With such inspiration, their ambition is providing a unique shopping environment that caters to an eclectic eye. From sourcing fashions thrifted, consigned and designed, they apply the same care and affection for every piece recovered and sold; to accommodate a client whose looking for that special piece both vintage and contemporary, satisfying ones’ style requirements. Complimented by art and accessories, they uniquely understand a wardrobe that accentuates your lifestyle.
We formed a California LLC for Brook.
