Elemental Couture brings chic clothing
Linda Morales recently launched her own retail brand with the opening of chic clothing boutique Elemental Couture in Temple Terrace.
Morales has had an interest in fashion for as long as she can remember. When she found herself becoming increasingly frustrated with the shopping selection near her Temple Terrace home, she took matters into her own hands. Morales opened Elemental Couture with the mission to provide "trendy clothes for trendy people."
The store caters primarily to women, with a small selection of clothing for men. From edgy lace party dresses to bold patterned leggings, Morales stays on top of the trends to keep her inventory current.
"I'm always on the lookout for promising designers," she said.
Elemental Couture is located at 10930 N 56th Street in the Temple Terrace Village Plaza. Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; closed Sunday and Monday. Find it on Facebook: Elemental Couture Clothing Store, Inc.
