Our Story

The business was founded in 2003 by Nailya Belkacemi. 

Beginning life as a one-woman operation providing pattern cutting services from a small studio in Fulham the business has organically grown into a full scale operation with a dedicated creative team of machinists and pattern cutters. 

The cornerstone of our success is our attention to detail and our commitment to quality and excellence in service.

Our studio has produced fashion collections that where showcased on the most prestigious catwalks and worn by prominent celebrities. 

Confidentiality is not taken lightly by us. Your creative ideas are treasured and kept confidential at all times.

Sustainability Goals

Let’s face it…. The Fashion Industry is changing and rightly so. We have a responsibility to change the issues for good. 

We have taken our own steps toward a more sustainable approach to manufacturing clothes. Whilst we have not achieved all our goals, we have made a number of improvements to our manufacturing processes and the way we support our staff. 

Who makes our clothes and where is now as important as how we dealt with our rubbish or what electricity we are using. 

There is much to be done but we are hugely encouraged to see what our clients have done so far and we are all heading in the right direction.

The Academy

A nagging thought for many years has been how we can make the manufacturing experience an easier and more enjoyable process for new designers. 

With our 20+ years of experience, we are on a mission to actively foster new designers creativity and come alongside their creative process by providing our know-how.

To offer a 360 degree support, we created the Fashion Production Academy where fashion designers can accrued the knowledge and practical skills they can apply in their business immediately.


Our Team

We have the best team! Between this lot there are probably over 300 years of experience as cutters, machinists and sample makers.
