From couture dresses to handbags


My sewing experience started at the tender age of seven when my mother helped me design and make a Chanel jacket for my doll. This was the beginning of a life-long passion. Although my working life was spent in the corporate sector as a Learning and Development Manager, sewing was always a side-line and I continued to study and develop my sewing skills.


After retiring from the corporate world, I set up a small dressmaking business, specialising in couture garments. Several years ago I was bitten by the bag-making bug and have added a new flavour to my sewing endeavours.


I hope you enjoy the products in my shop. If you are looking for something special to match an outfit, please contact me to discuss a custom order.
