Cutter (part-time,) Forget-me-not Designs
Forget-me-not Designs is an Isle of Wight based bridal gown design house which sells gowns, both
wholesale and retail, mainly across the U.K.
My work here involves cutting and adapting dresses from stock designs to individual brides’
measurements and design changes. The emphasis here is very much on producing beautiful dresses
in the most time and cost efficient way. I experienced the opposite end of the spectrum whilst
working at Shakespeare’s New Globe Theatre in 2003 where I was initially schooled in authentic 16th
century techniques before making costumes entirely by hand!
