Spotlight Series Articles: This is a series of articles where I share information about small businesses and awesome people / freelancers. I’m doing this because I love to connect dots and help people in their journey for work and life solutions. I’m also super excited to support other businesses as I am building my own.
I’m thrilled to introduce you to Yansi Fugel!
Yansi is such an inspiration to me – a badass entrepreneur and soul. Her custom fashion line is absolutely stunning and flips expectation on its head and is steeped in her desire to help women of all sizes, feel confident and comfortable in their own skin. To me – this is what fashion is all about! When COVID hit, her business slowed to a halt and rather than disappear, she stood up for other women-owned, as well as minority run, small business owners in her own blog series, Women to Watch. I’m honored to share with you her beauty – both in her own heart and in the fashion she custom creates.
What I do: Tux Couture is a luxe collection of tuxedo separates custom-made expressly for women.

What should we know about you?
I am a feminist fashionista, entrepreneur and fashion industry veteran with a mission to dress women in confidence. A “tuxshedo” is an iconic look that is powerful and very female at the same time. A sustainable alternative to yet another cocktail dress that will live in your closet for years to come. Why should only men have it easy?
Why do you love what you do?
The joy it brings to my clients in having exactly what they want and with perfect fit. The better you feel in your style, the more you exude confidence and manifest the positive.
Tell us about your superpowers!
Everything I do is made to order, which is not only about sustainability, but also about getting a perfect fit. I fit real woman with real bodies. Whether you areV a size 2 or 22, my goal is to make you feel beautiful, empowered and confident.
What else should we know?
My tuxshedos are designed as separates, not only to be worn as a suit. The pieces can move apart to be worn in a variety of looks. I use a proprietary fabric that I developed that has a mechanical stretch (for comfort), resists wrinkling, is trans-seasonal and the pants are washable.
