Welcome to Couture Designs - a complete fashion design, alteration, tailoring, and restoration service located in Sacramento, California. Established in 1989, Couture Designs is owned and operated by Kimberlee Caldwell, a Sacramento native. For over 20 years we have been serving clients not only from the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valley, but also Northern California, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Reno, Phoenix, and Denver.
We assist our clients with their special occasion attire by working to create something new and one-of-a-kind. Our European trained seamstresses have a diversity of skill and craftsmanship that enables us to create your haute couture look. With access to fabric and trim resources in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, and Milan, we can truly create that special look for you and any occasion.
Our alteration skills are extensive for both women and men. In some instances, we have worked with the designer companies to get fabric, trims, and notions to complete a proper alteration, which formed an ongoing, cooperative relationship. On a regular basis, we have altered European designers such as Chanel, Armani, Escada, Dior, Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, and Burberry. We have altered many CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) award-winning designer garments: Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Vera Wang, Zac Posen. When tailoring for our male clients, we work on Ermenegildo Zegna, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Corneliani, Joseph Abboud, Jean Paul Gaultier, Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece, Black Fleece by Thom Browne, and Club Monaco garments.
Over the years, we have enjoyed the challenge to help restore European and American fashion pieces. Vintage pieces from Yves St. Laurent, Pucci, Claire McCardell, Halston, Bill Blass, and Perry Ellis were remade and repaired. This has been a rewarding way for Couture Designs to challenge our abilities and skills, bettering us with each experience.
