“Couture” is a word that scares most people, but it is not as outrageous as you may think. Celebrities wear these fabulous creations all the time, so why can’t you? Heatherette and Alexander McQueen are just some of the many designers that have accomplished a wearable couture.

Heatherette’s nventors, Richie Rich and Traver Rains, have created a brand that truly brings out the pop star in everyone. A little sequins, glitter and amazing talent transformed them into a top brand in the fashion industry and put them on the streets everywhere. Heatherette is located in 75 federated stores and 25 specialty stores nationwide and keeps expanding.

Alexander McQueen also provides the extreme outfit you are looking for. This London-based designer offers a contemporary feel to more traditional types of clothing for both the working woman and the party girl. He uses neutral colors with a splash of accent and a lot of imagination. His designs can be found in over 39 countries  and on the most well known celebrities. 0208GIBBERMAN.gif

  Local designers also make the front page of style news. Atomic Geisha, based in Dayton, Ohio, produces some of the most extreme designs on the New York runways.
