Illuminated Couture and Good To Glow

 

A Luxury Couture Light Up Clothing Company

Made in Las Vegas NV by talented and passionate artists. 

 

Our Story

Illuminated Couture LLC, was started January of 2014 by Lead Artist and Designer Ronnie Brust. Ronnie was a passionate amateur costume designer with a knack for designing things that lit up light up.

“I remember the first time I wore the outfit out at night.  It had hundreds of feet of glowing red and white El-wire sewn to every seam, but the first thing everyone said to me was… Hey, Cool Pocket Square.” Red and White El-wire lined Tuxedo Jacket  

Here is the same Jacket Before the Red Pocket Square

The Glowing Pocket Square (GPS) idea sat shelved for almost 2 years until he was fired from a bartender job and forced to look for some quick income.

Making 20 of these Glowing Pocket Squares, Ronnie went to the local art fair and set up a tiny table in the corner of his friend's booth.  By the end of the night, he had sold all 20, and while walking through The D Casino after he was approached by management as they inquired about this new glowing product.  This conversation turned into an order for 200 units later that week, and that is how Illuminated Couture started.

Customer #1 First Friday Las Vegas 2014

Frankie Scintas The D Casino Las Vegas NV

The very first Glowing Pocket Square ever sold

 

What started off as a single concept of a Pocket Square eventually leading to the complete product line of high-end Glowing LED products and wearable items.

"Since that first order I have strived to produce the highest quality products possible.  I have surrounded myself with the best programmers, electrical engineers, seamstresses and artists I know!  I've never stopped pushing myself and continue to gain momentum with each new project.  I want to be the BEST!" - Ronnie

Good To Glow Story - As the brand grew it was decided that for marketing purposes Good To Glow was easier to remember, spell and had less characters to type.  January of 2016 Good To Glow was launched for the products while Illuminated Couture is still the custom and unique concepts. When people ask, “where did you get that?” Just tell them that you’re Good To Glow!

There is NO idea too crazy for our team of in-house artists, engineers, and designers to manifest into reality.  Learn more about our process, see past projects or get your order started. Check out our custom orders page
