" I had never really intended on starting a business, I just had a specialist skill that did not fit with a lot of big design brands so it was better for me to work for myself and do freelance small work. It then developed into a business quite slowly and organically from there."
"How would you describe the connection between embroidery and tailoring?
I think they have gone hand in hand since gold work was created. It may have started for ecclesiastical purposes but it very quickly moved onto military uniforms. Obviously goldwork isn’t used as much in military uniforms now because it can be seen as a little ostentatious and our military is much more subdued these days. The main thing I do with the tailors is monogramming, which is usually very small, delicate and personal and is also my favourite thing to do."
