I was invited by the Hospital Club to give a talk on my passion for good design and ‘slow fashion’. This is the idea that rather than clothes being a ‘quick’ fix, instead the garments you buy are considered, unique and made with care. This starts with sourcing fabric and follows right through from the design you choose, to the colour, fit and every detail in between.
I believe in reconnecting people to the process of dress making so they take pride in what they wear, care where it comes from and know what suits them and why. This also encourages a healthy and ethical attitude to clothing as there is no wastage, our materials are locally sourced and each beautiful garment is made in the UK.
Empowering women with the clothes they wear is crucial to what we do and we want to offer every customer a personal experience so that the clothes we make fit around their lifestyle and enable them to look and feel their best every day. If you feel confident, it radiates from within and can change the way you socialise, interact with people and do business.
I began the talk by going through my style inspirations, all the way from my grandparents, to the iconic ‘old Hollywood’ films I watched growing up and the music that influences me now. Working in a creative industry means constantly absorbing new cultural influences, using the memories from your past and applying these ideas to creating something new and wonderful for the future.
This is also why the Hospital Club is close to my heart as it is a place for people who work in a multitude of creative businesses to come together, share ideas and collaborate. They champion new creative minds as well as work with established brands, artists and enterprises to always offer an exciting take on the London creative scene.
We had a fantastic evening and met some lovely, stylish people! It is great to be able to share our journey, ethos and plans for the future with a new audience and we shall get the video of the talk online very soon….
