…Or at least that was officially decided as of the 20th of March.
Does it mean we can relax and put away our winter boots and fur coats or shall we hold on to them a little longer, just in case another “beast from the east” will make its way to us?
Spring has taken a long time coming this year. Daffodils and snow drops have been resilient and many times shaken off their snow coats to rise again in the warm sunlight. We are all a fed up with the long winter. The commuters wrapped up against the cold on Clapham junction platform desperately turn their winter pale faces, towards the warming sunlight as it appears between passing clouds.
Our studio has gone from New Year silent to a sudden surge of activity. And with the awards season well and truly past us we are looking forward to threading our sewing machines with much more than just black thread! With every dark and glittering gown we’ve completed we got closer to welcome spring and with it the abundance of colour!
But luckily there hasn’t just been dark items on our rails. We have altered many wedding dresses some to be ready for travel to beach side locations and other for cooler English countryside venues.
A few of our clients have taken advantage of the slow start to the new year and handed in their favourite dresses for copying, to be ready for the spring and summer season.
I will take the opportunity to remind you all of our unrivaled cashmere repair service. We literally make well-loved items look like new. So before you fold away your knitwear for the summer make sure they will be looking the part.
We’ve also had some changes within our busy team.
Saga our fitter started in February after a longer time off with her children and she’s now back in full swing a couple of days a week, looking after new and established clients alike.
Don’t forget that if you are too busy to visit us in the studio for your fittings, we can always come to your home or office. Maybe the coffee break is the only time you have spare to get those trouser hems fitted. We can arrange for delivery back too.
Saga is also keeping busy updating our Instagram with everything that’s going on in the studio so please follow us there to find out what we are up to.
Cornelia one of our amazing tailors has re-joined our tailoring family, she has over 20 years of experience of tailoring and is a very skilled made to measure tailor.
We are hoping Julia who commutes between the chickens, dogs and husband in the countryside and London will get some better and less snowy driving conditions from now on.
All in all it’s shaping up to be a flowery and busy spring and we look forward to see you in all your spring wardrobe glory very soon!
