black mink fur coat
This mahogany mink coat was restyled from of an old mink coat with hockey shoulders from the 80s. We cut the length, added the hood, changed the shoulders and added a leather belt. The cuffs were removed and the sleeves got the straight shape. This mink coat will serve for years to come.
brown mink fur coat
This brown fur coat was restyled from an old mink coat. We cut the length, added the hood, reshaped the shoulders and added a leather belt. The cuffs were removed and sleeves were straightened. To emphasize the waist line, we added leather inserts. The hood and zipper give the coat a sporty look.
Mutation mink stroller
This black cross mink jacket was damaged by improper steaming. Leather shrank all over. We used the fur from the hood to repair damaged areas and to redesign the collar. We also repaired the small tears, replaced the lining and dry cleaned the coat.
fox fur stroller
This season, a nice big hood is coming into vogue. We restyled the collar into a hood and cut sleeves to three quarters, which created a vest-like look.
fox fur sport jacket, hooded and zipped
This silver fox jacket underwent a complete transformation. It was completely taken apart and then put back together anew. Alterations included upsizing by two sizes and complete restyling. The new hood, zipper and leather inserts give it a sporty but cozy look.
Karakul Stroller with a standup collar
This old style full length karakul fur coat with and oversized fox collar and cuffs had a very furry and outdated look. We removed the cuffs and restyled the collar into a neat standup made of karakul. The coat now looks lighter and more modern. As it is made of small karakul sections, it is prone to tearing and should therefore be inspected regularly and, if necessary, repaired as soon as possible.
This is a sample of an alteration job. The client requested that the coat be resized down, which we did. We also added a modern looking hood and made many other alterations. Several small tears were repaired in the course of the restyling.
reversible water repellent fur coat
This job is a perfect example of how an old fur coat or jacket can be restyled. The coat is taken apart, fur is sheared or dyed, new materials such as leather or wool are added and - bingo! - a new look is created. This garment was transformed into a reversible coat with sheared mink either on the inside, to create a warm and water repellent coat, or on the outside, for a more conventional look, with mink trimmed edges and hood.
Fox chevron vest with riri zipper
Fox is one of the best furs to work with when we talk alterations and restyling. Originally this was a jacket with unproportionately long sleeves. We redesigned it into this modern looking chevron vest which is versatile enough to be paired with jeans or to be added to an evening gown. Leather inserts make the garment lighter and emphasize the curves.
Black karakul stroller
The old karakul coat was too bulky and heavy for everyday wear, so it rarely saw the light of day. We replaced part of the coat with leather inserts to make it lighter. The hood and the asymmetric hemline gave the coat a sporty look and everyday wearability.
reversible wool jacket with mink collar and cuffs
With this coat, we gave the client two garments in one. This is another example of a complete redesign. The original was an old mink jacket. We gave it a complete overhaul and transformed it into a reversible wool coat. The lush mink shawl collar and cuffs add a classic and elegant look.
Black mink stroller transformation - work in progress
A full length mink coat with fox sleeves, fox collar and fox edges looked way too furry and outdated. We are creating two garments out of one. First, we used the mink to make a dress-like stroller you see on the picture. The second part of the job is a vest, with leather inserts, to be put together from the fox details of the original garment. Stay tuned...
