The Designers Story
I’m Louise, and I am a fashion designer with a passion for the 1950s style. So here’s a little bit about my story and how this all came about;
I’ve ALWAYS been totally obsessed with dresses; colours, prints, silhouettes, structure, texture, drapery, all that beautiful fabric floating down a catwalk… its always fascinated me. Even as a child, I was known to choose the brightest boldest prints, the future was inevitable!
So, what do I love aside from dresses and how did I get here?
After completing my Fashion Design degree, I did internships with designers, learnt the ropes, worked long hours and got the chance to help out backstage at London Fashion Week; which led to unique opportunity of a paid position creating my own collection for a Charity Fashion Show in London.
Afterwards, myself and my collection set off on a plane to Canada to show at Ottawa Fashion Week! It felt like a dream, it was a great experience, but with no knowledge of running a business at the time and still unsure of my path, next on my list was to travel the world with a friend.
What an experience that was, I came back refreshed and inspired, but missing my sewing machine! I was itching to create something and so, alongside freelance work in a fashion production role, my label was born.
This, of course, was not (and is not!) an easy path, but for me, it’s not just something I like to do, it’s a need to do it! I have always adored the classic styles of the forties and fifties, so timeless, so beautiful, so fun and a style that I feel flatters so many women; all different ages, shapes and sizes.
This was important to me, to cater for all Women, and to help all Women see how gorgeous they are.
With gorgeous-ness aside, these dresses make you want to have fun, every time you slip one on, it instantly makes you want to twirl round and round and round! Circle dresses are totally made for twirling!
This set the tone for the style of my designs and I created my first set of dress patterns in classic fifties style cuts.
Most importantly, I want to make Women feel fabulous through my creations. It’s the best feeling in the world seeing a customer light up when they put on their made to measure dress!
