On the Road with Le Suite Boutique!
Iran Oritz dreamed of owning her own clothing store that would cater to the tough yet chic New Yorker. However, with high rent all over the city, it was difficult to secure a location. After much thought, Oritz came up with an innovative alternative ? a boutique on wheels. This would not only make her dream a possibility, but her mobile truck would stand out from any storefront location.? Passionate about the prospect of her new business, Ortiz told her good friend Mareana Rosario Torres about her idea. The ladies soon joined forces, becoming business partners.
Ortiz and Torres turned to the New York Women?s Chamber of Commerce for help starting their business. Robert Izzo ? the director of WMBE Services ? mentored the ladies on how to incorporate their business into the New York fashion scene. With the help of NYWCC, Le Suite Boutique was able to turn their dream into a reality. ?Since the launch of their mobile boutique, Ortiz and Torres have had great success!
While mobile boutiques have become increasingly popular in the last years, you will not find a boutique that compares to Le Suite Boutique. ?Offering the latest style in female street wear and contemporary brands, Ortiz and Torres? boutique is a game changer. The truck carries brands, such as, Married to the Mob, Crooks & Castles, Hellz Bellz, Moda-Luxe, and much more! Most of their merchandise ranges in price from $25-$120. Ortiz and Torres have done a wonderful job at creating a welcoming space for their customers. They?ve designed the truck to resemble a walk-in-closet, which allows their customers to feel right at home while browsing the racks. Le Suite Boutique has exceeded all expectations of a mobile truck!
The truck now ventures the streets of New York City three-to-four times a week.? We must not forget that being a store on wheels, one may wonder, how can I find the truck? ?The ladies always share their location on their social media accounts. Most of the time, the ladies explore areas of the city the night before, and share their location the following morning.
