Having had a love for fashion from the age of five I pursued a career in fashion design. I graduated from university with a 1st class honours degree in fashion design before moving to the US to work for Abercrombie & Fitch. Two years later I returned to London to work as a lingerie designer for M&S. I then made the move north to Stirling to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and have been making custom made wedding dresses for my customers ever since. I really enjoy working one to one with my clients; seeing their excitement when their wedding gown is complete is very rewarding.
My style captures femininity, elegance and the glamour and romance from past eras. I take great inspiration from vintage/antique costume and translate this into modern-day designs.
Each dress design is handcrafted with love, passion and meticulous attention to detail.
STEP 1: All of my clients receive a free consultation so that we can have a friendly chat, flick through some fabrics, colours etc which allows me to understand what you want and feel comfortable wearing on your wedding day.
STEP 2: I then draw up a few sketches based on our conversation and present the ideas to you along with fabric swatches and costings. If you wish to continue thats fab, I then take your measurements and arrange a first fitting. If you choose not to go ahead thats fine - no obligation!
STEP 3: The first fit is an opportunity for the customer to try on the wedding dress/evening dress at a prototype stage and make any adjustments to fit or style, its very rough at this stage and the design is made in a cotton calico to allow for changes.
STEP 4: I then proceed with any corrections and arrange a second fitting when the dress is almost complete to allow for any minor fitting alterations. This is when you will see your design in its final fabric and you get to see the evolution of the dress.
STEP 5: The final fitting is the stage when you come to try your dress on one last time before taking it away . Yay!
