With the never-ending peril the planet is in these days, it makes sense to make as many attempts as you can to help ease the burden. It is essential to not only recycle, but also upcycle. A friend to our environment, Altered Couture encourages readers to make something new out of something old. With 144 pages of stunning photographs printed on high-quality grade paper, Altered Couture is a publication dedicated to personally crafted and embellished clothing and accessories. With beautiful photographs on every page, readers will find stylish and fun altered clothing such as jackets, shirts, sweaters, jeans, skirts, and a variety of accessories to complete the perfect outfit. As a publication built on the creations, our readers proudly send to us, every issue of Altered Couture features easy-to-follow tips and techniques to help you create styles as unique as you!

Most people care about the environment, but few know the damage done by not upcycling items. Buying new clothing and accessories increases the resources need to produce those new purchases while old clothes are sent to a landfill. When trying to be kind to the planet by re-using old items, it doesn’t mean just shopping at thrift stores and wearing the same boring clothes all the time. Being good to the planet shouldn’t mean you can’t look good, too! Our publication, Altered Couture can show you how to take old clothing and give them new life with simple resources, such as dyes, paints, bleach, stamps, buttons, and so much more. Whether you’re looking for lace embellishment to make an old dress new or a new style you never thought of before like T-shirt headbands, this is a publication dedicated to presenting fresh ideas and inspiration to help you keep your wardrobe exciting without buying brand-new clothes.

For over 20 years, we have been bringing readers publications meant to enrich and inspire. All of our publications are focused on cultivating creativity and individuality while trying to leave the world a more beautiful place. Check out any of our fine magazines for more creative fuel, tips, and techniques to create something wonderful of your own.
