Restyling is the concept of making something new out of something old. One of the unique qualities of fur is its incredible durability. Furs, when properly maintained, last for decades. Consequently, the fur often outlasts the fashion. As a result a beautiful garment that may represent the owner’s largest single investment in apparel will hang unworn in a closet simply because the style is outdated – think big shoulder pads from the 80’s series Dynasty.
Fur restyling gives that fur new life – the garment is recycled and reinvented and the range of possibilities are fantastic. This is ideal for garments that have been inherited and are either ill-fitting to the new owner or simply of a different fashion sense. We can remodel into something new while maintaining the sentimentality that was inherited along with the fur. Choosing to restyle your existing fur can give you a new garment often for as little as a quarter of the cost of buying new.
Popular restyles for today include: converting long and heavy mink coats into chic and wearable Fur Vests, long or cropped. We can shear long hair Mink, making your existing garment a more lightweight option. For the avid traveler- we can replace your silk lining with a weather resistant fabric and make your fur coat fully reversible and more practical. We can make scarves and earmuffs or trim gloves. We even restyle fur into teddy bears and home accents like pillows and couch throws. There are so many possibilities! Fur restyling is a transformation of your an old fur into a fresh new style you’ll wear all the time – and your friends will want to know where you got it!
