I have always had a passion for designing and making clothes. From an early age, I remember making dolls clothes from scraps of fabric. My parents bought me a toy sewing machine and I enjoyed creating an outfit for a doll or teddy.
As a young teenager, I made dresses or skirts for myself and friends often inspired from clothes we had seen in the shops. I would be able to adapt patterns to emulate the styles we had seen and the following day we would be wearing my creations.
I was one of the few who enjoyed sewing lessons at school and went on to take O level and A level in Textiles and Dress. I pursued this talent and later excelled in a couture and tailoring course.
I have been making couture wedding dresses for over 20 years. In 1992, my sister in law asked me to make her wedding dress and from there my desire to create beautiful wedding gowns for brides to be was born.
My style is all about great structure and fit and designing dresses with a freedom that encompasses fashion and a clients individuality. My unique creations are loved for my attention to detail, feminity and exquisite use of the most luxurious silk fabrics and lace. I love seeing my creations at various stages of the couture process, it’s what makes me tick, the creating and making process. Each dress is hand worked with love, care and precision. For many brides, the experience of having their dress made for them is a very special part of the wedding plans. I am always delighted when I am told this, as I aim to create a fun, personal and friendly environment.
Now that you’ve found me, I’m excited about the possibility of designing your dress. We will work together to design and create your unique dress, turning ideas into reality. You will see your dress develop from the initial sketches and fabric selection to the final stunning creation exquisitely made for your very special day.
