From her workroom in Woodbridge, Suffolk UK, Clare Perkins creates Bespoke Clothing . Each design is carefully thought out and hand-made using exquisite fabrics, silks and laces . "I believe everyone deserves an outfit or wedding dress of her dreams for her special day or occasion, and the very best she can afford, whatever her budget."
After graduating with a Diploma in Fashion from The London College of Fashion and Clothing Technology in 1972, she to gained an apprenticeship at The House of Sir Norman Hartnell Ltd, where, after weeks of picking up the pins and polishing them before putting back in the tins whilst on floor duty, she quickly progressed to sit at the top table with the House's top hand.
"This was my dream come true, to work in this prestigious Couture House. I love to design and create my Client's Dream Dress and bring it to life by giving them something to treasure for many years to come."
This Haute Couture experience really cemented her passion for the whole process and gave her a deep rooted love of silk and lace fabrics which she still carries today .
