dl-couture Clothing with Compassion 2nd Annual Flagstaff High-Fashion Event Company Profile: dl-couture Dl-couture is a custom clothing line by designer Danell Lynn. It specializes in Haute Couture clothing fashioned in the traditional since of high sewing, custom fit garments and featuring hand detail work. We are produced in small quantities and are sweat shop and mass production free. Each garment is a work of art and the time and love put into it is our statement of quality. Couturier Danell Lynn learned much of her technique working as an assistant designer for Gerry Kelly Couture out of Miami, FL. Her Haute Couture line is itinerant, as she travels to her clients, all over the world. Every garment is different; all embellishments are unique to that particular piece of clothing. The qualities of fabrics are exquisite with detailed trims and hand-finishing technique. Danell Lynn travels the world to find the perfect fabrics for her clients and her garments. Blending the beauty of exotic textiles and artistic inspiration, to create superior quality garments. Helping to bring compassion back into fashion through purchasing fabrics from merchants in developing countries, making cruelty free garments, and incorporating humanitarian donations in our business plan. The purchase of dl-couture clothing is more than a garment. Proceeds from every custom gown go toward humanitarian aid, to help those in need while looking gorgeous. We are believers in the heart of humanity and want to keep our goals of blending elegance and goodwill into our company. Along with the Non-profits we work with and donate to, we are the founders of Threading Hope, a sub- company of dl-couture that makes personalized, hand made quilts for children in need from third world countries. Dl-couture is exclusive in that we only make 13 custom gowns a year, no matter how many orders. This makes the time commitment to create a work of art a possibility and makes the garment more of a limited edition. We do make a sampling of garments (each still one of a kind) for runway shows that are sold at the size created. The buyers can then pick up dl-couture at less than custom costs. We currently only produce runway garments for our solo-fashion event that is held annually in Flagstaff, Arizona on the First Friday in August. Where clients can come and enjoy a beautiful city and an evening filled with high fashion, live music and lots of local art as this is done in conjunction with the downtown First Friday Art Walk.
