What we are doing to help be sustainable?
We are commited to the following. Locally made; all our bridal wear are made in the United Kingdom. Craftmanship and community; we work with local productions and artisans. Sharing knowledge within the community educating the next generation with in house work experience, apprenticships and going out to local schools, universities and colleges to share our practises and experiences. Considered fabrics and materials; We identify the origins of our fabrics, favouring natural materials. We love to by materials that British produced where possible but with the nature of bridal wear, some of the best world-renowned fabrics such as lace and silk are produced in Italy, France, Spain and further afield places such as Japan. We love to work with independent producers, artisan and heritage makers. Reducing waste; by reusing and recycling within the atelier. We donate remnants and offcut fabrics to local schools to be used in textile and design projects. Reusability and longevity, designing garments with this purpose in mind where possible so that they can be enjoyed being worn again. Carbon footprint; to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible.
I can’t thank Liz and her team enough! She created my dream wedding dress and nothing was a problem for her, I changed my mind a few times and Liz was right there with her expertise and sorted it straight the way! My husband also had his suit made and it was exactly as he visioned. If you have a dream Liz will make it a reality x
I was not a Bride to be who had always dreamed of her big day and what 'The Dress' would look like. All I knew was that I wanted the experience of finding it to feel special… From the moment I met Liz, had a glass of fizz in hand and saw the stunning dresses I knew this was the exact experience I had been hoping for... Every fitting was genuinely a joy, and nothing was ever too much effort for Liz (including packing my dress and my groom's suit for our flight!). I felt gorgeous in my dress on the big day and received so many wonderful comments, it truly was the perfect dress for our perfect day, and I cannot thank Liz enough for being so fab!
Humongous thank you to Liz! I wasn't sure that I would find what I wanted.. I turned up with a Pinterest board full of ideas and a bit awkward... I'm not the 'bridey' type. Liz was interested and honest with me and my ideas, she pulled out an edit of dresses for me to try, I toyed with the idea of having something bespoke and then went back to one of the first dresses I tried.... Liz was very patient! My dress was beautiful, a mixture of all the things I wanted. I felt amazing and wish I could wear it again and again! I'm so sad I can't go back and just keep trying it on, having a glass of fizz and laughing with Liz. Thank you again for your help and patience, you guys are the best and I would recommend you to everyone xxxx
