The team behind Alpaca Couture is Welsh designer, Antonella Commatteo and grass roots rancher, Wade Von Giessen. All designs were created with actual alpaca fleece. In the last few years there has been a greater push for utilizing natural fibers, and Alpaca Couture is at the forefront of this movement being one of the only fashion labels to use alpaca fleece in its designs.
Alpaca Couture’s use of alpaca fleece isn’t its only unique characteristic; fashion forward pieces also made the collection featured at Fashion Week San Diego stand out. Architectural collars, sleeves, and hoods were absolutely thrilling to see, especially paired with vibrant colors. The more subdued looks were equally beautiful due to delicate details. Alpaca Couture is more than fashion, it’s sustainable wearable art.
