Altered Couture represents a style of design that embellishes an existing garment or accessory. Altered Couture, a magazine devoted to artists embellishing clothing and accessories, has attracted these unique artists from around the world. It is within the pages of this publication and on this Web Site that you can see what you are capable of creating, as well as how your wardrobe is capable of being transformed.
Our Altered Couture boutique is devoted to ensembles created by artists collaborating to achieve a unique look. Artists within these pages are members of the Peninsula Wearable Arts Group as well as artists selected from the pages of Stampington's Altered Couture publication. It is the artistic goal of this site to embellish and coordinate as many pieces of an outfit as possible, from the hat to the shoes, so that each of the outfits created is as unique as you are, highlighting YOUR BODY from head to toe.
Use our boutique to imagine what you can do with your own wardrobe, by yourself, or with the help of our featured designers. Every piece of clothing and accessory stored in your closet has the potential to be transformed into something magnificent. You had fun shopping for your wardrobe to begin with, so keep on shopping, but don't forget to shop in your own closet where your best assets are. Recycling your wearable assets is easier than you think, and can often prove to be more successful than shopping away from home!
