TruLuCouture's Shop Announcement

Louise Truett’s Profile
Louise has been sewing since she was a child. Her mother, grandmother and aunts are all masters of crochet, knitting, quilting, smocking and needlepoint. Louise majored in Apparel Merchandising at Indiana University with an additional degree in Costume Construction Technology and a minor in Marketing. She trained under German Master Tailor, Karla Kunoff and interned with designer Vivian Gray of Atlanta. Louise followed a path of creativity and design and built a successful career as a product designer of interior decor accessories at the wholesale level. Weary of the corporate life, newly married and freshly relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina, the evolution of TruLu Couture began. It is the culmination of inspirations from her world travels (India, China, Viet Nam, The Philippines, Thailand, France and Germany), design and culture. Many of the items from TruLu Couture are one-of-a-kind pieces that cannot be recreated due to the nature and availability of vintage materials. Once an item is sold, it might not be available ever again!
