RETHINK what fashion can be.

Upcycled Designs Made to Last:

Kristen McCoy (AKA the Upcycler) believes in locally designed and sewn products that are made to last. Shop Kristen’s designs online, OR email to schedule a shopping appointment at the Studio in South Minneapolis.

All designs are harvested from damaged garments from the community and secondhand/deadstock fabrics, and EVERYTHING is sewn ethically in Minnesota.

Upcycling and Mending:

Kristen ONLY works on preloved garments. Her specialty is upcycling special occasion pieces to be worn again, revamping old forgotten items from the closet, repairing or modernizing family heirlooms and favorites, creatively letting out beloved pieces when they no longer fit, and modifying the old wardrobe to fit a new silhouette post surgery (i.e. top surgery, mastectomy, etc).

Kristen is not a machine and can only work on so many upcycling and repair projects per month/year. To submit a request for upcycled design and/or mending services, please fill out this form.
*no walk-in hours for repairs or tailoring.
