Love Leanne Clothing is a bespoke ladies garment making service.
Having a Transgender Father, I feel like it is very important to have well fitted clothing for all body types. I aim to make beautiful occasion wear for all types of ladies.
I specialise in womenswear but am not limited to the female form. With techniques learned from costume houses, I can create garments for any body type.
All my garments are handmade in Birmingham using materials sourced in the UK. My aim is to be a zero waste company, I believe in fair wages and using local resources.
My zero waste policy is to only purchase the material required for each garment. To only produce to order and to ensure I do not become “fast fashion” where excess stocks are sent to landfill or incinerated.
I create costumes and clothing for events and clients. The sectors I work for are as follows
Stage and screen costumes
My business will operate from a studio located in the heart of the custard factory in Digbeth, Birmingham. Its will be an appointment only studio, where I will do fittings and consultations and most of the clothing production.
I have been a costume maker for theatre for many years and wish to carry on that side of career while expanding to creating fashion garments.
I will have a stock of sample garments for ladies to try on, so they can see they quality they are getting. I also accept designs to work from for both fashion and costume.
I have a pool of talented, freelance local artists, designers, models and garment makers who I can employ for larger projects. Quality throughout is guaranteed. Each garment is inspected by myself and will only be delivered to the client once approved.
I intend to use the money for these purposes
- To rent a studio where I can do my work
- To make sample dresses for clients to see
- To do photo shoots to advertise my work
- I will pay to advertise online, with leaflets in shops and posters
- To pay my wages for 4-6 months while I make the transition to full time freelance maker
