Paying Hommage to 20th Century Couture Masters

The Vintage Couturiere



Welcome to a couture label that pays hommage to eminent vintage couture fashion designers from the 20th century.

Created by Olivia Torma in Brisbane Australia, The Vintage Couturiere specialises in remastering vintage couture patterns for a modern fit and refashioning them for a modern day look!

Our collection includes couture patterns from the ateliers of Paquin, Patou and Lanvin to name a few. Our couture recreations are strictly one-of-a-kind and sold under a bespoke commission agreement with our clients. Occassionally we will produce and sell one-off samples to the general public.

Should you be interested in commissioning us for a bespoke vintage couture recreation please contact us. To be notified of sample sales please follow our socials.



House of Jeanne Paquin

Considered to be the inventor of style in the art deco age, Jeanne Paquin brought an avant-garde attitude to fashion. Follow our journey as we reinvent a 1950’s jacket designed by the House of Paquin – in her honour!
