The English Tailoress

Charlotte Appleby is trained in Handcraft tailoring at London College of Fashion to learn bespoke tailoring (Savile Row method) for men and women. She developed her technical skills by working in the fashion and costume industry on productions for theatre, opera, film and fashion designers showcasing at LFW and Paris Couture Week. Using fine embellishments such as seed beads and bugle beads can completely transform a garment making it truly unique and memorable. She adopted this skill 8 years ago by attending a tambour beading workshop ran by a french designer based in London, she applies it to a lot of my bespoke bridalwear and evening dresses.  She's also inspired by the arts, theatre, textiles and the natural world. Now you can learn this fine couture beading skill at Fashion Makerspace too !
