Bringing the initial ideas to life through the sketches. Jess lives and breathes all things fashion, after completing a fashion degree and showing at Graduate Fashion Week, she moved into the world of bridal fashion and never looked back!
Helen and Jess bounce ideas backwards and forwards to each other constantly, always cooking up new design ideas together and adapting initial sketches. So many different aspects can spark up a new design idea, it could be a fabric, a lace pattern, a certain colour, button or fastening idea.

Together, the ladies in the sewing room have years of experience and really bring our ideas and sketches to life!
