From over 4,000 boutiques worldwide, BLAZE + WANDER of San Diego has won the hearts of both local and global shoppers being voted into the final round of the 2017 Boutique Awards in the state of California as a contender for Children's Boutique of the Year.
The Boutique Awards is the only global recognition event for independent boutique retail owners in the fashion industry, hosted by The Boutique Hub. The Awards recognize and celebrate the best boutiques across all 50 States in the US, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom, in the categories of Storefront Boutique of the Year, Online Boutique of the Year, Children’s Boutique of the Year, Mobile Boutique of the Year, and State or Country Overall Boutique of the Year.
Already, the awards have garnered over 300,000 votes from shoppers and consumers who love boutique shopping worldwide, and voting wraps up on August 21st, 2017 on www.theboutiqueawards.com.
The awards celebrates retail at a unique time, when many are dubbing a current retail apocalypse, however industry trends show a strong upswing in the boutique retail market. The Boutique Hub, the global voice and Hub of the Boutique Fashion Industry, cites one of the strongest boutique markets in history with new boutiques opening daily across the globe, and established boutiques posting some of the strongest sales to date. The Shop Small movement is certainly alive and well as big box retail dwindles.
BLAZE + WANDER opened in July 2016 by Sarah Yasukochi. Based in San Diego California, the online and pop-up boutique features a thoughtfully curated collection of ethically made and socially conscious children's clothing, accessories and homewares. They offer locally made products and partner with artisans and makers around the globe to outfit cool and carefree kids for their next adventure.
"We celebrated our first year in business just last month. To be recognized as a Favorite Children's Boutique in this short period of time and by a global organization like The Boutique Hub is such an honor. We're thrilled that our happy customers now have an opportunity to vote us to the top as Children's Boutique of The Year! What a great way to validate all the hard work for our first year in business and confirmation that we are moving in the right direction!" said BLAZE + WANDER owner, Sarah Yasukochi.
