“The Shops at North Bridge always seeks new opportunities to provide our shoppers with unique and innovative retail experiences,” said Katie Walsh, Senior Marketing Manager at The Shops at North Bridge. “The unique customization opportunities available at Custom Consortium will provide our shoppers with the opportunity to amplify their clothing and accessories with their individualized personalities.”

Following its first successful retail operation at The Venetian Las Vegas, Custom Consortium’s newest pop-up will be located at North Bridge’s highly trafficked location on the 1st floor next to Nordstrom, neighboring Alex and Ani. In the 900-square-foot experiential retail space, customers are invited to touch, see and feel the base inventory on display in order to then customize desired products to their own liking. The customizable product variety includes denim, leather goods, watches, jewelry, sneakers, dress shoes and shirts from top brands including Impish Lee, Martinero, and more.

“There’s a massive untapped market for custom fashion accessories, as seen by the explosion in bespoke menswear,” said Custom Consortium’s CEO & Founder Sam Payrovi. “By bringing these brands to luxury consumers, we’re creating an environment where they can tailor products to express their style and meet their functional needs. We’re excited to bring existing brands to market and incubate many more.”

As part of their customization experience, customers will choose from swatches, hardware, colors, fit and styles. Sales staff are trained on the precise fitting techniques implemented by each brand to ensure all proper measurements are taken for an authentically designed product.

About Custom Consortium
Custom Consortium is a concept by Sam Payrovi. Having spent 14 years on Wall Street, Sam left to build Saintly Bags, a line of customizable weekenders and leather goods handmade in New York City. He then discovered the need for a retailer to bring a new era of bespoke brands to the masses. Today, Custom Consortium is the premier retail platform for the exploding customization sector, enabling consumers to become their own designer and creating an individual sense of style through all customizable aspects. The company continues to onboard both established and emerging designers to offer a variety of curated bespoke products including leather bags, watches, denim and lingerie. For more information, visit
