Emily Garrod Bespoke Dressmaker

Emily strives to make you feel comfortable, happy and beautiful in your dress. She is full of ideas and can help you to choose the best styles, colours and fabrics to suit you. A bespoke dress will be made to a client’s exact measurements. Their colouring, individual style and personality will all be taken into consideration throughout the design and making process. 

Fabrics and the process of dress making captured Emily’s imagination from a young age. At the age of five Emily had her first sewing lesson with her Grandmother on an ancient Singer sewing machine. The same machine resides in her studio today, still stitching perfectly.

In 1999 Emily moved to Dubai with her family and went to secondary school there. Dubai’s material souks held many wonders and indulged her love and excitement for fabric.  

Too young to attend basic pattern cutting classes, she sent her mother on her behalf.
 After A Levels in England, Emily went on to complete a Fashion Studies degree at the Arts Institute Bournemouth, graduating in 2010.

Emily has great empathy with people and loves to design clothes to suit their figure and personality. She feels her most successful work is created when designing for a specific individual. Emily enjoys creating outfits which can be worn over a lifetime and not just for one season.
