Welcome!

Welcome to The Vintage Couturière by Olivia Torma.

Vintage Couture Dressmaking and Haute Couture Embroidery for Discerning Ladies of Style

Founded on the principles of slow and sustainable hand made fashion and inspired by the nostalgia of bygone eras, I design and make fashion and accessories with a difference – I call it ‘Couture with Conscience’ – Guilt Free Fashion!

My philosophy is simple – make less with more and make it well so each piece can be worn for more than just one season and many more reasons!

Hand Crafted Embellishments and Finishes

What makes a lady fashionable? 

A lady knows her own style. She knows quality when she sees it and she understands the commitment, skill, cost and time it takes to make fashionable clothing by hand.

Olivia Torma

Founder, The Vintage Couturière

Couture clients understand that investing in couture is an investment in oneself and the new fashion system called for in the 21st century – less waste and less exploitation, good design and materials, and impeccable attention to detail and fit.

I design and make original vintage inspired couture pieces that are strictly produced as one-off designs or in minimal quantities in standard sizes. I also make vintage couture clothing from authentic vintage dressmaking patterns that I have remastered to fit the modern day woman. All my designs and vintage clothing reproductions can be custom made under my bespoke couture service. All my work is guaranteed and I offer a complimentary 12 months minor repair and refitting service for my clients.

I hope you love what I do.

Fusion of Fashion

Description

Fashion history is a strong influence in my work. I’m inspired to merge and fuse ideas together in an outfit to create a look that is totally new and unique. Mastery lies in bringing the right elements together in the design and execution!

This pants and vest ensemble fuses riding habit fashion of the Victorian era with beach pyjama fashion of the 1920’s and 1930’s. These eras are symbolic of the fashion revolutions that took place when women enjoyed more leisure.
