- What is Amélie Boutique?!
Amélie Boutique is an online store that launched in November 2008. We aim to sell up and coming designers from all over the world. Clothes and accessories that have just enough of an edge that you may not be able to find elsewhere. The list of designers stocked is growing rapidly.
The illustrations mixed with the distinctive web design generate a fresh and unique browsing experience. 'Amélie', the character behind the store, is one dreamt up by owner Niina Poskiparta and has been brought to life by French illustrator Angéline Mélin. Poskiparta wanted a face to launch her online boutique, and came across Angéline’s work, which she immediately fell in love with.
Fashion enthusiasts can click on and see Amélie wearing outfits from the shop, all of which can be bought and delivered worldwide. You can take a look at all of Amélie's outfits here.
- Will Amélie Boutique have seasonal sales?
At Amélie Boutique we hold seasonal sales. Please note that we cannot guarantee that its prices will be equal to offline stores when they go on sale. Also, due to the exclusive nature of our stock, we can’t guarantee that an item will still be available for purchase late in the season.
