These aptly named Quirky Couture creations by Raggedy Rags are stunning, hand-crafted Victorian Burlesque-inspired pieces which they poetically describe as 'a collision of sophistication and harlotry'.

Created by infusing innovative design elements into the patterns of period pieces, Raggedy Rags gives a beautiful new life to vintage curtains and antique lace.

Corsets seem to be their specialty, but they also do knitwear reconstructions.

Steampunk fans will fall in love with these stylish one-of-a-kind refashioned garments.

Implications - Businesses that create products with qualities that are reflective of the past or a popular historic tradition will appeal to consumers seeking nostalgic relief. Consumers will likely invest in products that simulate positive feelings, emotions or experiences from the past.
