The Porter Collective, a sumptuous visual feast, came about as a result of Tracy Porter's unfettered belief that every woman has a story to tell. Tracy’s love of the hunt for deliciously wearable layers are evident in the joyful distillation that is The Porter Collective.

Guided by her intuition and thirst for sensory experiences, Tracy seeks goods that will bring a unique and timeless alchemy to one's wardrobe.

Porter's own aesthetic appreciation of casual wearable pieces that intrigue the eye and delight the senses - all while celebrating individualism - shines in Tracy's artisanal approach to her thoughtful curation.

The Porter Collective - a happy unpredictable edit by Tracy Porter.

soulful. enchanting. curated...

all peppered with unexpectedly quirky and charming touches.
