The mission of The Boutique Awards is to give consumers around the world the opportunity to choose and celebrate their favorite boutiques from all 50 states, Canada, Australia, and the UK and recognize them over the next year!
The Boutique Awards celebrates boutiques and specialty stores, whether online, mobile or brick and mortar, who are the lifeblood of cities of all sizes around the world. They are the first and often most personal touch of fashion for women (and men and children) of all ages, sizes, locations and income levels. Boutiques celebrate the unique products and styles, meaningful personal experiences, and build relationships and esteem through fashion.
