Catherine graduated from Bath in 1983, with an Honour's degree in textiles. Since then she has launched her own business in unique Bridal, Cocktail and Evening wear. She has created gowns to go as far afield as Kenya, the Caribbean and Australia as well as Europe and the United States, travelling to some of these destinations to work with the bride and create the most beautiful wedding gown for the bride's big day.
Catherine's work has been inspired by a love of classic and elegantly cut designs from couturiers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel and Madam Grès. History and art also offer infinite inspiration when designing the perfect wedding gown.
Catherine very much feels the design and creation of bridal clothing must be individual and personal. What one wears is an expression of that personality. The wedding day is the ultimate occasion for expressing the bride's personality through the gown she is wearing.
Catherine firmly believes it is essential to keep up with modern trends but knows that many brides wish to maintain a certain amount of traditional aspect when deciding what they want to wear so revisiting and adapting traditional ideas is all part of the design process. With this in mind Catherine has spent time completing courses in corsetry both for outer and underwear and in tailoring techniques. The elements of these disciplines complement each other thus producing a gown which will feel comfortable and give you confidence on your wedding day.
Catherine's professional friendly and personal service will ensure you look unforgettable on your special day. For those women who seek individual style, whether it is classic, elegant and chic or flamboyantly theatrical, Catherine can make your dreams come true!!
