About

Hello! I'm Corey Johnston. I live in San Diego, California. Relished Artistry is my wearable art venture with the goal to infuse joy back into the wearing of clothing! I have 20 years of experience designing and building high-caliber theatrical costumes in regional and educational venues (and teaching others in classes as well). This allows me to make pieces that should help you feel expressive, stylish, excited, and cultured!

Relishing the artistic opportunities inherent in clothing, the aim is to bring out that inner flair in all of us, so we can feel good about how we adorn ourselves. Every piece is not only handmade, but it's a one-of-a-kind work of art. No two pieces are exactly alike. I'm focusing on larger sizes at the moment, but anything can be…

Relishing the artistic opportunities inherent in clothing, the aim is to bring out that inner flair in all of us, so we can feel good about how we adorn ourselves. Every piece is not only handmade, but it's a one-of-a-kind work of art. No two pieces are exactly alike. I'm focusing on larger sizes at the moment, but anything can be custom ordered.

The artistic opportunities inherent in clothing are limitless! Materials abound all around us. My influences are culled from my exposure to theatrical literature and my study of a variety of stylistic eras throughout the world. Sometimes overtly retro or culturally specific, each piece may use a variety of materials. From hand painted velvet capes and coats to handbags, shawls, or whatever else may be inspiring, my pieces are authentic and heartfelt regardless of the materials.

Showing how we are unique through what we wear on the outside is part of the how we share with others who we are on the inside. Life is too short. Live it with relish!
