About Us

Accoutrements LA showcases the innovative spirit and rich culture of independent Filipino designers through curated digital and in-person experiences.

An interior designer by trade, founder, Lisa Upton, fell in love with the intricate accessories she discovered on a trip to the Philippines. Years curating spaces for luxury resorts such as the Four Seasons Hotel, had attuned her eye to considered design and she was eager to learn more.

Speaking with the designers, Upton quickly caught their vision to intertwine indigenous and contemporary techniques to support local artisans and bring forth designs fusing past and future. And so Accoutrements LA was created. A creative marketplace developing imaginative statement pieces and introducing the global market to a hand-selected group of contemporary Filipino designers committed to enabling local communities to thrive.
