About RACHELLE APPELLE
I started sewing and designing my own clothes at age 11. Studied fashion design in Minneapolis, Minnesota and was awarded a trip to study couture sewing in Paris, France. I have worked professionally in the costume and fashion worlds for almost 20 years. I worked for a couture wedding dress alterations shop for 3 years and since the COVID shutdowns I started my own business. I specialize in making and designing custom wedding gowns and suits, vintage wedding gown redesigns, and couture wedding gown alterations and suit alterations. Non-traditional wedding attire is my favorite.
