High-End Fashion at a Fraction of the Cost
Robin Cirillo has a passion for fashion. “I love style. It’s something I’ve always been drawn to,” says the owner of Scout Consignment, a high-end consignment store in Toronto’s Kingsway neighbourhood. One could say Robin’s love of fashion is genetic. “I had a really stylish grandmother. I idealized her and we would go shopping every Saturday,” she says.
After a stint working at Holt Renfrew, Robin further developed her knowledge of high fashion. She frequented consignment shops across the border and always felt a euphoric sense of gratification walking away with a name-brand purse or dress for half the price of what it would cost brand new in a retail store.
She always wanted to open her own business, so when she saw a lease sign in the window of what is now Scout Consignment, she jumped at the opportunity and knew exactly what she wanted the store to be.
