Sophisticated Style & Common Sense

Theodora & Martha 2006

Winter 2007 range of womens separates.  The T & M label was characterised by a European sensibility, beautiful cloth and excellent fits.

This is one of the few occasions I had the privilege of working with a client that actually understood the technical side of the business.  And it was such a pleasure. 🙂  For several seasons I cut the patterns for this label and it stands out as one of my more satisfying jobs in the commercial side of the fashion industry.

Our fit meetings, where we assessed each of the new designs and discussed the needs of the customer, were enlightening.  With a strong retail background and some pattern making skills, Theodora understood the true shape of her clients.  This gave me the rare pleasure of knowing that the garments we were making would actually fit real people.

Although this range is no longer produced, I know that both Theodora and Martha are out there somewhere in the fashion industry sharing their sophisticated style, technical skills and common sense with some lucky fashion company. 🙂
