My couture tailoring service encompasses day dresses and couture jackets, trousers, overcoats, and more. As a couture tailor, I use a unique mix of the skills that I acquired over the past two decades of working in haute couture, high-end fashion, studying for a BA in fashion design and running my own business.

Whether you require a one-off outfit for a special occasion or would like to build a capsule collection of perfectly fitting pieces, I will help design your wardrobe. I will create a series of outfits that will fit exquisitely and take you effortlessly from client meetings to evening events.

My core principles are creating wearable, comfortable couture pieces for professional women who want a contemporary edge to their look.

As your bespoke tailor, I will work together with you to help you design and build your very own one-of-a-kind wardrobe that will be well fitted, comfortable and stand the test of time. Each couture commission starts with a consultation, where you will tell me what you want, what you like and don’t like, and how and where you will wear your garment. I will advise on fabrics and construction, guiding you step by step towards your perfect designs.

I take great care in constructing your design with floating canvasses, hand finishes and deep seam allowances which are used to create a shape that will last, and that can be altered should your shape change in the future. My natural style is elegant and timeless with quirky details. I strive to create clothing that will look fresh and contemporary, and that you will love for many years to come. You will leave your appointment reassured that a classically tailored and beautiful garment is going to be made for you.

Creating a tailored wardrobe will not only save you time, but you will always have the perfect piece for any occasion.

In addition to couture tailoring, I also offer Made to Measure tailoring. With a made-to-measure garment, you will be able to choose from a variety of garment styles, and the patterns will be adapted to your personal measurements. You can select from hundreds of clothes, linings and trim options. They will be constructed using machine finishing techniques, but still with the integrity of high-quality materials and classic shapes, whereas my couture pieces will be mostly hand-sewn and offer greater possibilities for creative expression.

No two garments are the same because no two women are the same. When you choose couture tailoring and even made-to-measure tailoring, each garment will be cut and made to fit you and no one else.
