We work to standard UK sizing, however can also work with you one to one with our made to measure service giving you a perfect personal fit should you require. Please email the studio to make an appointment for your fitting.

While many of our styles will be listed in the digital boutique, if you do fall in love with a piece from the archive, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We will do our best to accommodate your request. 

Because each piece is made especially for you, please allow a little longer for delivery. We aim to have your order with you within three weeks.

 

Bridal and bespoke services.

Please call the studio to arrange a consultation. Together we can discus your requirements and inspiration to develop ideas.

A 50% deposit of initial quote must be paid and cleared in full before design work commences. Following this sketches and swatches will be presented, and subsequent appointments made for development and fittings.

Once the final design, fabrics and fit have been confirmed a further payment will be made.

When your final piece is ready we will invite you for a final fitting. The balance on payment paid and your piece is ready for collection.

Lead times for this service can vary depending on order. We will discuss this at your initial appointment and confirm an estimated hand over date. We always try our best to accommodate short deadlines, as we appreciate that sometimes there simply isn’t the luxury of notice for that special occasion. If this is the case please specify when making an appointment. In this case we may need to add a small priority fee.

If you would like to discuss this further please drop us an email or call the studio and we will be happy to help.
