Created and owned by Kimmie Denise, Sucré Couture came from a need to see dope ass women in some badass jewelry.
In 2011, beginning with a simple website, a humble inventory, and a vision of greatness, Sucré Couture got its start in New Orleans. Soon after, we replanted our roots in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since then, we've been launching collections for the Sucré girl with showstopping energy who can move mountains with a push of a red, manicured nail.
Sucré Couture's easily identifiable brand identity has flourished under the creative direction of The Vic Styles and Kimmie's 90s and grunge flair and obsessive love for quality gold jewelry.
