considered curation

At MODISTE™, we take great care in selecting the brands we offer. Some labels you may recognize, while others may be new to you; we’re proud to sell every single one of them! For some, we’re the sole retailer carrying them in Nashville; for others, we’re the sole retailer in all of North America, and we think that is pretty special! We’re working hard to introduce unique brands to Music City’s shopping scene and cannot wait for you to see what we have in-store and online!

limited quantities

For each piece we offer in-house and online, we purchase only 1-2 per size/per color. For accessories, we purchase anywhere from 3-5, so if you see something you like, we’d recommend you add it to your cart since pieces go quickly! We strategically operate this way to reduce excess, as our founder has made it her priority to limit the MODISTE™’s environmental impact.

exceptional care

While our prices are on the higher end, we always like to remind our clientele that the brands we offer manufacture their pieces in an ethical manner (this is across the board!). Not only that, but their pieces are made of the highest quality materials and fabrics. When you make a well-thought-out purchase that you appreciate in the long run, you’re helping to reduce fashion’s large footprint – as opposed to buying into ever-so-tempting ‘fast fashion.’ It is for this reason that MODISTE™ is committed to supporting smaller labels and female-led companies that design and manufacture with tremendous care and love.
