SALE – Every Woman’s Favourite Word……

Happy New Year!

It’s been a speedy start to 2017, and I can’t quite believe we’re more than half way through January already!

I’m really excited because my new clothes rails arrived last week, so the new showroom is coming to life, and presenting my designs in the way they should be seen.  I’m looking forward to adding beautiful new styles to this elegant, comfortable space. 

However, in order to clear space for the new collection, I’m holding a SALE of sample garments, cashmere knitwear, jewellery and fur accessories, all at bargain prices.  As recipients of my newsletter, you’re invited to the special preview day, on Wednesday 25th January.  Please join us for a glass of bubbly, to toast the New Year, and celebrate my new ‘Home.’

Bride of the Month – Anna

"Having had disastrous experiences with 9 well-known wedding dress designers, I discovered Allison’s beautiful work with an enormous sigh of relief. There is so much pressure nowadays to look the ‘perfect bride’ and it can be a stressful and demoralising experience.

Not only did Allison create exactly what I had pictured in my mind, she tailored my dress and veil to flatter at every angle – not an easy feat when dealing with plain crepe silk. Thanks to Allison I loved every step of the process. Her experience, talent, kindness, advice, consideration and attention to detail provided me with a dress and experience no one else could offer. She knocks socks off the rest!"


Anna called me, after having seen my bridal gowns through the Elystan Street shop window.  She’s an interior designer and immediately recognised the quality of the materials I work with, and loved my understated designs and styling.

One of my wedding dress samples caught Anna’s eye, which happened to be in the sale, and we added long bias cut sleeves, and covered buttons for understated detail.

From the outset, Anna reminded me of actress Julianne Moore, with her beautiful long wavy red hair, and ultra-long legs.  It was a pleasure to dress such a beautiful and stylish bride, with a contemporary, yet timeless wedding dress.
