Congratulations to 360 Boutique for celebrating four years in St. Augustine. Owner Helena Kahan focuses on affordable fashions, fair trade and eco-friendly items.
She moved to St. Augustine from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. She owned two clothing boutiques in “The Big Easy,” but was forced to close her doors after the catastrophic storm. In 2006, Kahan opened 360 Boutique at 50 San Marco Ave., in uptown St. Augustine.
The shop features global imports including limited edition releases by small artisan and design companies from all over the world.
She credits her loyal St. Augustine patrons for helping her business to survive.
“When they have a little money to spend, they come in and find a new piece to add to their wardrobe,” Kahan explained.
“I get a lot of help from tourists who come to the city as well.”
For fall and winter, a selection of boots is available — in all heights, colors and shapes. Also in stock, mix-and-match separates, tops and skirts, organic cotton, and party dresses for the season.
