"Love & Desire"

For Cynthia Stukes, it was a love for sewing and design that blossomed into a passion for couture. A personal wardrobe stylist since 1990, her clients included women with schedules too busy for wardrobe planning, such as politicians, businesswomen and movers and shakers within the community.

With this experience, she and her husband Robert expanded their business into retail, adding flair and pizzazz to the closets of everyday women. Their years of success, a passion for couture, coupled with the commitment to bring upscale fashion home to South Carolina evolved into Carolina Couture — Columbia’s premier designer boutique and bridal salon.

Its revolving chandeliers and grand interiors, transport you into a whole new world defined by style and elegance. The boutique’s retail section is a virtual treasure trove with caches of gorgeous designs of every hue and texture for day or evening. The perfect ensemble is easily achieved with Carolina Couture’s selection of shoes, handbags and accessories from various designer brands.

Stukes admits that if she had the opportunity to dress a famous person it would be First Lady Michelle Obama — she epitomizes the caliber of woman who appreciates what Carolina Couture has to offer —classic style with contemporary undertones to appeal to both the young and the young at heart.

The boutique’s bridal section is a virtual one-stop shop with gowns from Pronovias, Allure, Mary’s, Moonlight and Forever Yours as well as a whole selection of bridesmaids’ and formal dresses. Carolina Couture also offers designer names in wedding accessories from invitations and ceremony accompaniments to shoes and jewelry.
Truly, Carolina Couture is every fashionista’s dream come true!
