There is no perfect size.
There is only the perfect fit.

Dara Ford

As a women's tailor I am passionate about clothes that fit well, are beautifully made and elegant. Clothes that will work hard for you and enhance your favourite features giving you an air of confidence whenever you wear them.

The right outfit can lift us up, inspire us to be the best version of ourselves and help us feel confident, powerful and successful.

If you are feeling stuck and uninspired with your professional wardrobe and would love to have clothes that fit you perfectly then I would be delighted to help.

Women’s tailoring

My passion for more than 20 years

When I set up my business in 2008 I left behind the fast-paced world of designer fashion to pursue a slower more sustainable path. I was tired of the limited view of beauty I saw in the world around me and wanted to create clothing that would cater to women of any age, shape and style.

Bespoke tailoring allows me to do this – seeing and revealing the beauty in each of my clients and staying true to my motto:

There is no perfect size. There is only the perfect fit.

Over the past decade I have created many outfits for women; from tailored dresses and trousers to casual skirts, silk blouses and wedding gowns. I’ve been using my unique experience in fashion design – along with my knowledge of haute couture tailoring– to help women like you look and feel great.
