Silver Leaf Costumes, an artist-run company, started with the dreams of a fantasy-obsessed young girl as she visited the boutique stores with her grandmother. As she grew older, Laura Elliott, the owner and fashion designer, traveled to Europe and was inspired by the art, architecture, and history around her. She started Silver Leaf Costumes as a Renaissance Festival booth in 2001 and quickly expanded to faires and conventions around the US.

Silver Leaf provides quality, historically-inspired clothing, with corsets, full and high low skirts, men's ware, and a host of other items. Through custom designs, they take great pride in their products, handmade from start to finish. Using designer fabrics and hand-tooled leather, they have created a look that is highly recognizable and synonymous with quality and creativity.
