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 dresses for my customers ever since. I really enjoy working one to one with my clients; seeing their excitement when their dress 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 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.
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 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 client to try on the dress at a prototype stage and make any adjustments to fit or style.
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.
STEP 5: Final fitting is the final stage when you come to try your dress on one last time and collect your dress.
