ABOUT COTERIE BOUTIQUE
Bess Clark, owner and founder of Coterie Boutique longed for a place where reasonably priced contemporary fashion could be easily found in Maryland. She went back to Los Angeles in 2010 to form relationships with designers and their agents, and so began the journey to building Coterie Boutique. She wanted to find up-and-coming designers before the major retailers. Bess set to work on creating a shopping experience rooted in styling, expertise of the industry, and that was customer focused. That process took her nearly 4 years before opening the doors of the original Coterie in 2014. Exhausted by the retail game of the major players, she wanted to build a new business where honesty, not only in styling, but pricing, was paramount.
She travels all over the country, and meets with designers from around the world. Often you will find lines in her store before the major retailers carry them, if they carry them at all. She is a trend-setter and believes fit and quality are key to great style. No one is quite as passionate as Bess when it comes to all things styling: she believes size is relative, and so are labels. She works to find the best value, style, and reasonable fit for every woman's body type, and believes no consumer should pay unreasonable mark-ups for great clothing.
