Julia Smith has been designing and making gowns and corsets for over ten years.
With a focus on the personal and bespoke, this has led her to create wedding dresses in almost every non-traditional colour, steel boned corsetry in rich silks, and to develop the Mistress Collection of silk lingerie.
Taking bespoke clothing design and construction a step further Julia has recently created costume for a number of theatrical and short film pieces. For characters including playhouse creatures, WW1 munition workers and murderous maids, a vampire slayer and hapless space travellers.
A series of quick sketches she has done of her menagerie at home are being transformed into a new t-shirt collection.
Whilst never having bought a pair of curtains has meant years of experience creating made-to-measure curtains and blinds.
