A lot has changed in last year at Polite Society. For starters, in an effort to dedicate more shelf space to their favorite women’s collections like Ports 1961, Hoss Intropia, Catherine Malandrino and Brian Reyes they no longer carry menswear. They’ve also dedicated the entire back section of their store to Seattle couturier Madina Vadache who specializes in Ready-To-Wear and Bridal. The Spring ‘09 collection features beautiful cocktail dresses (like the one pictured above) adorned with organza petals and beautiful French lace. Madina is currently in the process of moving to New York and has decided to retire 15 of her designs which means that a handful of floor models and samples are 50% off! All of Madina’s designs are all handmade here in Seattle and each piece is one-of-a-kind. Polite Society even has several Madina Vadache bridal gowns in stock.
If you’re pinching pennies and looking for sale (who isn’t in this economy?) check out the sale rack at Polite Society which has a ton of merchandise from last season marked at 60-80% off.
Polite Society is located at 1924 1st Ave. (between Stewart & Virginia).
