MEET THE DESIGNER
Hi there! I'm Claire Helene, the designer and owner of my Lovergirl Couture studio located in Austin, TX where I personally design and hand sew all of my designs for my wonderful clients all over the world. I specialize in Vintage Weddings and have outfitted thousands of beautiful brides for almost an entire decade.
I grew up in the suburban San Francisco Bay Area during the 1970’s, where I began my background in fashion design at the very young age of 4 years old when my grandmother, who was quite possibly the worlds best seamstress, sat me down at her vintage sewing machine and taught me everything she knew. Her skills were superior and I’m lucky to have learned everything I know from the master. By the early 2000’s I was busy working for Betsey Johnson in Beverly Hills, CA where I handled all of their T.V. and Movie Studio wardrobing accounts for A-List Celebrities and High Profile Clients. I attended Fashion Week in Bryant Park and was planning on moving to NYC for work until I got pregnant with my son in 2003 and motherhood changed my life! I'm now a proud mom of 2 beautiful teenagers who I love dearly.
My prayers became my reality in 2012 when I kissed Corporate America goodbye with a wave of my middle finger and I found my life’s true passion in clothing design, the very place I had started when I was only 4 years old! I am so excited to be launching my Lovergirl Couture for you all! If you want vintage and girly, you've arrived at the right place. From Bad Girl pin up tops to sexy Evening Gowns and Swing Dresses galore, I look forward to designing you the dress of your dreams!
This website is a work in progress and you may have noticed that there are no quantities available, I've set it up so that my existing clients can see what's styles are available with as many pictures as I can possibly upload and to give them an idea on prices, etc. My Grand Opening will be this Spring 2020 as I have so much to do to get ready! I'm currently designing my new line of custom handmade bodysuits, equipped with new necklines that will be available throughout my entire collection launching soon and available for custom ordering after my official Grand Opening this Spring 2020!
