Porte Mode offers a carefully curated selection of the best in emerging global fashion. For our first season, we are showcasing women’s ready-to-wear and accessories from exclusive designers from Japan, Korea, and India.
We have meticulously selected international designers with a unique story and are committed to delivering their products to you within 5 to 7 business days, without having you go through the hassle of dealing with duties and international shipping.
Whether it is artisanship passed down through generations, intricate hand embroidery, or an innovative approach to structure and silhouette, each of our designers disrupts the status quo and pushes the proverbial fashion envelope further with designs and techniques that are truly inspirational.
Our clothes are more than just thread and fabric sewn together – they redefine the concept of staples themselves. Our site features limited production and runway pieces from the forefront of global fashion. Our clothes are aspirational, yet accessible – a piece of art hanging in your closet.
We challenge the idea of passive consumption. We believe that each piece of our curated collection only comes to life when the story behind its creation is revealed. We believe in buying with intention, wearing with purpose, and knowing your designers. In the competing space that is your closet – we invite you to let these clothes and their creators awe and inspire you every day. We hope you discover something new at Porte Mode – your very own gateway to global fashion.
