Boutique Couture?

If you've never heard of Boutique Couture, aka Custom Boutique kids clothing, then you are missing out on a world of wonderful!
Jeans. Lovingly appliqued and embellished. Stripwork dresses in a riot of designer fabric colour. Ruffles, twirly skirts, shirring - all in one divine creation. Amazing intricate hair bows designed to match perfectly.
We aren't just talking about handmade clothing, we're talking about something special. Something beautiful. An outfit that is almost a work of art. An ensemble that guarantees your child will be more than just one of the crowd - because no other child is going to have an outfit quite like yours.

In the USA, Boutique Couture has a massive following, mostly on eBay. Some designs can sell for hundreds of dollars. The amount of work and love which goes into creating these special outfits is incredible.

This nifty little widget shows you the current ebay "Custom Boutique" listings so you get an idea of what we're talking about! Note, not all of them really fall into the category we're talking about here, so procedd with caution!



(I borrowed this widget from Boutique Cafe - Secrets from the Studio)

Our mission is to find Boutique designs in Australia and bring them to you. If you happen to find some yourself, then please let us know!
