Convertible Couture

Why settle for single function when convertibility doubles your versatility?

Implications - Whether convertible handbags, transformer shoes or clothing, apparel and accessories you can wear from home, to the office and to after-work cocktails are intriguing women everywhere. Today, space is a constraint and convenience rules. So, it’s not surprising that multi-function apparel has such broad appeal. While it might seem that adding convertibility in the fashion world would be style-inhibiting, it’s a concept that works – and that could be adapted in other industries.
