Have you ever walked into a store, took a look around and thought "This store is too overpacked and cluttered for me to even begin to know where to start looking?" This was the thought farthest from my mind when entering Muse Social Fashion House. Last week, I had the privilege of visiting South Surrey's hottest specialty clothing store. I was highly impressed by the cool and trendy vibe. Everything was so organized and thoughtfully presented, it made shopping a pleasant and stress-free experience.
Christine, founder and owner of Muse, opened her doors in 2010, after realizing the lack of specialty clothing stores and boutiques in the area.
After re-evaluating career choices, Christine decided to follow her passion for fashion and enrol in the Fashion Merchandising program at Blanche MacDonald. There, she created a business plan for launching her own clothing boutique - and the rest is history!
Christine describes Muse's style as "Smart Casual". Whether you're looking for something to wear for a girl's night out, date night or a wedding or work outfit, Muse has versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down, providing shoppers with many stylish options.
As if that wasn't reason enough to make this your go-to store for every occasion, Muse only stocks the store with a limited supply of every piece, ensuring you won't have to play the "Who Wore it Best" game at any event.
The store receives new product twice a week, providing a consistently fresh selection to choose from with every visit.
Whether you're in the area, or need to travel a length of time to visit, a trip to Muse will be well worth the effort!
