Questions
Will you make a copy of an existing item?

No. I am a designer with a specific look and copying in the design world is an ethical issue. However if there is information to be gained from a favourite piece which goes on to inform a unique design, for example a collar shape, proportions, sleeve particulars like a raglan as opposed to a set in sleeve etc, this can be helpful to hone the design.

Why do you make-to-measure?

Made-to-measure is essential for a custom fit  as no two people are the same. Arm lengths are different, bust sizes are different, body lengths are different, leg lengths are different and so on. This has been born out again and again as I have made clothes for real ladies not the generic sizing.

How long does the process take?

The process is dependent on many things, availability of clients time for consultations and fittings and the weight of work in progress but usually 6-8 weeks allows for the work necessary when creating a unique product.

Who makes the clothes?

Every item is designed, pattern cut, toiled and tailored by me. There is no substitute for having the whole process in my hands and I love every part of it.
