What is Demi - Couture?

Alyssa Nicole designs carefully crafted made to order luxury garments in traditional sizing or tailored to fit at an accessible price point. 

At Alyssa Nicole, we don’t believe in disposable fast fashion. We strive to design an accessible luxury collection. Each garment in our collection is handcrafted with great attention to detail - every season our designs are drafted by hand with a pencil on paper in our studio. From sketch to production, we stay true to the process of haute couture designing.

Our line is comprised of Ready-to-Wear pieces and Special Order pieces. Unlike traditional couture, our Ready-to-Wear pieces are conventionally sized rather than individually fitted. If you want to customize the fit of your order - in the tradition of haute couture, we craft the garment to your exact measurements for a tailored made to measure fit.

If you know you fit a standard Size 6 dress - simply order a Size 6 from our online shop!

Ethically and Sustainably Made

Each season, the Alyssa Nicole collection is limited run with handcrafted pieces. At Alyssa Nicole, we believe in sustainability and only work with materials that are recycled deadstock from big fashion houses.

In my previous experience working as a designer for fast fashion houses - I’ve seen thousands of yards of fabric go to waste after being over ordered seasonally. The textile industry uses a variety of chemical dyes and treatments which cause pollution and is hazardous to our health. We only source a limited quantity of readily available materials, this way less waste is contributed by fashion to the textile industry.

Our collection is made to order and we produce a limited quantity of our collection to reduce waste. Alyssa Nicole is focused on ethical American made craftsmanship. Our design atelier carefully crafts each design individually in San Francisco, California.
