'You made it all so easy"
Dear Simon, I can't begin to thank you enough for your absolutely stunning creation! I loved every minute of the design process, from the first design meeting to the final fitting - you made it all so easy. The final gown was just amazing, and more beautiful then I could ever have imagined. I am attaching some photos of your fabulous work - THANK YOU so much.

"The whole experience is such fun"
“I used to read articles about bespoke tailoring and think that the claims were exaggerated. Finally – I’m nearly 50 – I had a dress and jacket made by Simon and I realised what I have been missing. I put on the outfit he has made and I know that I couldn’t look any better than I do and I can go to an event utterly confident about how I look. Simon is a perfectionist and he wants you to look your absolute best. The parts of me that I consider less than perfect are either turned into assets or cleverly disguised – genius! Simon is also one of the kindest and funniest people on the planet – the whole experience is such fun that I honestly wonder what took me so long to try it.” Samantha Bowman, London

"Made me feel so elegant"
“I would like to say a few words about the beautiful wedding dress Simon designed for me, he kindly took charge after my hopeless attempts to find a dress for my wedding which was fast approaching. I had not met Simon before, but his ease and kindness immediately made me feel completely relaxed about the process and the whole dress design took on a wonderful and exciting mood. Having listened to my hopes as to the style of the dress he sketched a plan for the design, and had a toile (which is a first make of the dress in a rough fabric) made to get the shape and design right before cutting into the silk. I have to say when I put on the toile I loved it, the shape was gorgeous and made me feel so elegant. The cut was also completely complimentary to my shape. He then threw a wild card into the mix and suggested a fall of pearls running down my back, he promptly had the dress made up in the real silk and we hung the pearls across the shoulders of the dress. It was fabulous! An ingenious idea that gave the dress a wonderful movement with this gorgeous sparkle across the back. The silk he had chosen to make the dress had a wonderful weight so the skirt spun out and felt spectacular to wear. So the final treat was the morning of my wedding when I woke up to put the dress on, all I can say is it was magical and kept me lifted for the whole day. Completely comfortable to wear, so that I was able to let my hair down and dance and not once worry about the dress apart from feeling amazing. Simon thank you so much, you were completely fabulous and you made me a piece of magic for my wedding day.” Libby Everall, London

What is your favourite style of wedding dress?

The initial consultation is the chance to explore ideas around the requirements of the client, resulting in the design brief being laid out as a basis on which to build. Styles and options are then looked at and a working design is sketched, referenced with the suitable fabrics. The design toile is then arranged to be fitted, before the chosen silk is cut. Depending on the style of gown or outfit, there are usually three or four further fittings to collection or delivery.
