A few words from our clients:

Sasha talks about the process of commissioning a Reddskin dress.
Karen is one of the most brilliant, talented ladies I know. My disabled sister has extreme spina bifida and has always been self conscious about her body shape. My sister has an eye for fashion and colourful prints, but alas, no one makes dresses for my sister's body type...Hello Karen!!!!! She not only made my sister feel extremely welcome and comfortable (a little bit of rum helped), but for the first time I heard my sister say she was proud of her body. The dresses are FABULOUS! Caroline feels FABULOUS! REDDSKIN, I salute you. xxxx Akiya " I commissioned a bespoke strapless dress, and WOW, to this day I can't stop raving about the experience. The customer experience was personal and attentive, and the dress itself was sheer quality, elegance and class. I looked absolutely stunning in Karen's creation, and I haven't stopped receiving compliments about it. Roll on commission number two!" Sasha.
"Karen is incredible: great fun, seriously creative - she'll turn something vague into an incredible piece of art - and a true expert in her craft. CANNOT RECOMMEND HER ENOUGH! Thank you Karen for creating my #dressofdreams and making mine the best outfit at the wedding". Kate
"I had a great afternoon learning to sew my first Tote Bag with Karen and I look forward to going back to learn how to make my first dress" Bana "I had private lessons with Karen which were invaluable. I wanted more confidence using my sewing machine and I also wanted to learn techniques for straightforward alterations. Karen was patient, great company and she really inspired me. Since my lessons I've done several alterations and given quite a few clothes a new lease of life so the lessons have already paid for themselves. But much more importantly I've rediscovered my enthusiasm for a really fun and satisfying hobby! Thank you!" Anna, Dulwich
