Our Story

In the beginning of their friendship, founders Caroline Gilroy and Agee Gretta Leinberry bonded over their love of dirty martinis and the joy of party dressing. But in recent years, they began to find the women's ready-to-wear market incredibly homogenous.

In 2021 they began stitching together an idea to develop a new kind of fashion platform, aiming to address a sea of sameness they saw washing over fashion and to do so in a truly sustainable way.

Couper is a multi-brand online destination for exclusive capsules: of museum-worthy looks in the women's ready-to-wear and accessory categories.

We are for the statement-maker who prioritizes fresh takes on fashion, stand out pieces of wearable art, artisan techniques and minimal environmental impact.
