About Tux Couture
Tux Couture was created specifically, completely, and fabulously for you.
With Yansi Fugel at the helm, there is a natural expertise and intuition that follows. Decades in the fashion industry sharpened her teeth for design, production, and tuning into what women really want out of their wardrobes. Her life's work has been to dress women in confidence, letting a woman’s authenticity shine through truly spectacular fashion. Her career is the brilliance of design that only comes from a legacy in the fashion business: Tux Couture.
A new way to approach the retail paradigm, Tux Couture offers a luxuriously sustainable option to the overstuffed closet of cocktail dresses and mismatched separates—Tux Couture was built to outfit your wardrobe with timeless pieces that tuck in seamlessly next to trends, and always leave room for you to play. The made to order business model ensures that there is no waste, impeccable service, and pieces that are truly yours from start to finish.
Marlene Dietrich, Great Garbo, Bianca Jagger... "the Woman in the Tux." She’s intrinsically strong and confident, effortlessly impactful. She defines timelessness and sets the standard for style in any room she strides into, as the room’s focus effortlessly turns to her. The strength she carries is subtle, but not too soft and distinctively female.
The truth is that she is you! Tux Couture was meant to make you shine through in every setting, whether you’re in all three fabulous pieces at a formal event or pairing your tux jacket with your favorite jeans for a coffee run. When you’re dressed in Tux Couture, the spark of power, bravery, and intuition that is naturally yours can shine through brighter than ever. Tux Couture was made to showcase the brilliance you carry, with bespoke touches and a fit to knock ‘em dead.
Are you ready to step into your power? Let’s suit up.
