I grew up with a dressing up box full of beautiful clothes made by my grandmother and great aunt, both professional artists and wonderful seamstresses. These creations, along with a love of ballet and opera inspired me to train as a Tailor and Costume Maker at London College of Fashion, graduating with a First. I went on to work as a Costume Maker at Glyndebourne Opera, the Royal Shakespeare Company and Birmingham Royal Ballet where I realised my love of silhouette and colour.
Whilst on my daily commute, I was often struck by the humdrum and felt a desire to brighten the outfits of my fellow commuters. Based on the classic soft tailored shapes of the 1950s and the vintage garments I love to wear, together with my passion for reducing my impact on the planet, I set about creating my beautiful range of luxury coats.
With sustainability at the heart of my business I use predominantly natural fibres. Where this is not possible I will find a suitable alternative, such as threads made from 100% recycled materials. Offcuts will be made into an exclusive range of co ordinating accessories.
A limited quantity of ready to wear coats will be available, alongside a more bespoke option.
