Mabel & Zora opened in June of 2006 in Portland, Oregon by husband and wife team, Corey and Tiffany Bean. The vision for the store was inspired by Doris Day and James Bond movies and Tiffany's grandmother's boutique from the 1950s. The outcome is a lovely women's boutique with a carefully curated mix of women's clothing lines focused on high quality, flattering and wearable styles. Designers carried include Trina Turk, Cynthia Rowley, Orla Kiely, Cupcakes and Cashmere, Michael Stars and Nic + Zoe.
Tiffany started designing her own clothing line - Tiffany Bean Designs - in 2010 also inspired by 1960s movies, fashions and jet set lifestyle but with today's woman in mind. Tiffany's line is found in Portland exclusively at Mabel & Zora and is a best seller of the shop. Mabel & Zora is also home to many other Portland designers including Grayling Jewelry, Betsy & Iya Jewelry, Harlow Jewelry and Hubris Apparel.
