Boutique truck, fashion on four wheels

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Two young women with dreams of making it big in retail, just couldn't afford to open up a brick and mortar shop.

So they took their boutique on the road. It's Fashion on four wheels.

By now you've probably seen food trucks all over the city, but what about a truck that sells fashion?  The Le Suite Boutique does just that and it's stocked with all the latest trends in clothes and accessories


Iran Oritz studied fashion merchandising and always dreamt of having her own boutique and it finally became a reality...on wheels.

Ortiz and her business partner Mariana Rosario Torres found the truck on craigslist earlier this year and turned it radiant orchid .the pantone fashion color of 2014.

Since April they've been canvassing the city, parking in different neighborhoods on different days. and racking up sales in the process.

So far they've had success all over Manhattan and in Brooklyn but up next, they plan to hit the Bronx.

The girls handpick all of the items themselves and almost all are made by LA or New York based designers.

Prices range from $15 for a bracelet to upwards of $200 for sunglasses.

They do have a fitting room on board so you can try before you buy. 


If you want to find out where the truck will be next follow them on Instagram or Facebook for their location information.

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
