Meet the Owner
Marque J Castellanos
I was born and raised in New York City, where I graduated from the High School of Fashion Industries and then moved on to graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.), majoring in Fashion Design and Pattern Making.
While attending F.I.T., my alterations and pattern making career began at David’s Bridal, altering all evening and wedding attire, with some full custom pieces as well. And, my Tech Design career
began at Jones Apparel Group, where I mastered pattern making and garment construction, touching many brands such as; Rachel Roy, Nine West, AKNY, AKAK, Jones Signature and JNY.
My business, COUTURE Artistry LLC, has been keeping the people of Southwest Florida & New York stylishly dressed since it's birth in the beginning of 2017. Though it is young, it is rapidly growing, providing Wedding/Fashion boutiques and individual clientele with alterations and custom design services.
I LOVE WHAT I DO! My approach is traditional with a modern edge. I offer sensible advice and an authentic, high-quality level of workmanship and service.
The COUTURE Artistry clients come away with a personalized level of service they can only get from us!
A Sweet Dream
Since before I can remember, I dreamed of designing my wedding gown! I never thought it would actually happen..... but it did!
I was able to design and make mine and my bridesmaids' dresses. I guess you could say I was a "Super Bride" because I did all of our hair & makeup, dyed their shoes, made the boutonnieres/bouquets, and so much more. I can truly say with elation, my wedding was my best work thus far..... and it was just the beginning!
