After relocating to Los Angeles in 2005, the studio increased its involvement with the entertainment industry - providing garments for film, music videos, and photo shoots in addition to continuing to produce new collections and custom designs. In 2008, Elaise Piper joined Fierce Couture, bringing years of experience in design and marketing to further the expansion of the label.
