We were already in love with Tooché, but we’ve fallen in love all over again!

The very talented boutique owner, Genevieve Monnet is passionate about fashion. She watches the catwalks, takes note of seasonal trends, and flys to Firenze, Italy to purchase fabrics to take on the season’s hottest looks for her customers.

Tooché has a beautiful selection of handbags, dresses, blazers and evening wear available for short term rental arrangements. The selection includes dresses by Versace, Jil Sander and Christian Lacroix, as well as bags by Gucci, Chanel, and Hermès, just to name but a few. We caught up with Genevieve to learn a bit more about what makes her tick…
