Observe fashion. Follow style. Create vision.
This is the principle I live by – to move away from cliches, yet stay in sync with the bigger picture. Clothes. Accessories. Hair and make up. Smile and even aura. There are more aspects to beauty than just looking pretty, but sometimes conquering the art of visual allure is the most important step when presenting a dazzling personality.
After making clothes for myself for over 10 years and being praised for the quality of the style and finish, I decided to make that brave step forward and start offering my services as a dressmaker in addition to my full time office job.
Having started sewing with commercial patterns, I no longer rely on ready-made designs. From 2017 I draft my own patterns using Muller and Son system – custom made dresses, blouses, skirts and trousers. I am planning to add coats to this list in the next year.
Every garment I make is special to me. Never mass produced, never rushed, I always strive for the haute couture feel, often taking hours to finish by hand.
Though fashion is my biggest love, I have also built and upholstered furniture, made home textiles, done alterations and garment repairs. For the full list of services I offer, please check here.
Yes, most people now see education as an essential part of one’s skills and capabilities. But check out these names:
- Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garçons)
- Cristobal Belenciaga
- Christian Dior
- Oscar De La Renta
- Karl Lagerfield
- Muccia Prada
- Diane Von Furstenberg
- Vivienne Westwood
- Tory Burch
- Michael Costello
- and more…
They are all self taught dressmakers and fashion designers. I believe that love for what you do, determination and a keen eye are the true driving force – life is a big learning curve anyway!
