Eleanor - Bespoke Bride
"Working with Alycia was such a delightful, creative and fun process. After scouring the internet for wedding corsetry, I kept coming back to her website and instagram pages, enchanted by the evocative images. I spent months researching, but nothing compared to Alycia's corsets. It was a dream come true to have something made for me; not just made, but intricately made and measured for me. As I live some 3,000 miles away, we arranged Skype 'dates' and Alycia sent me corset 'mock ups' in the mail to try on and she would study the fit and make adjustments.
Oh my goodness, its beautiful, elegant and unique! Everything I wanted! Thank you!"
Alycia was able to take my thoughts, refine them, add to them, and create a wedding gown (ahead of schedule) that I was so proud and excited to wear. I wanted something different, yet elegant; cinched, yet flowing; something utterly beautiful and memorable. Alycia delivered. Everything was done with such care and attention, and I treasure not just the wedding gown of my dreams, the sampler she made me as a gift, the note she wrote enclosed within the sheets of tissue paper; but a friendship with a woman I so admire. I cannot wait to create bespoke creations with her in the future." - Eleanor

Jodie - Eliza Gown
Jodie is a hair stylist that was nominated for a hair award show down in London and contacted me looking for an outfit that she could wear to the show. She was looking for something with an embroidered pattern that she could mimic and recreate into one of her incredibly beautiful hair embroideries.
At the time I didn't have anything appropriate, but I did have a special roll of fabric in my stash that I hadn't used yet. After showing Jodie the fabric and some possible designs, we made a few tweaks and both fell in love!
I seriously can’t thank you
enough! Literally your dress owned the evening in a whole other way"
“Working with Alycia was the greatest of pleasures! She’s got an incredible eye for detail and is truly knowledgable and considerate of everything from fabric to fitting.
Her communication is second to none. I felt extremely looked after and prioritised the whole way through the process from enquiry to designing, to my fitting and the big day. The dress was outstanding! I felt so comfortable and beautiful wearing it on the evening of my event, and to this day receive compliments about it! Alycia’s talent, skill and passion is second to none and I’m a customer for life. I cannot wait for each collection and piece she crafts. There’s so much heart and love in each thread. Thank you so much Alycia!” - Jodie

Cassie - Ciara lingerie Set
"It is so difficult to explain how wondrous Emiah's garments are because they are truly ineffable. Owning and wearing Emiah is almost like being displaced into your own fairy tale, making you feel unique, special and wonderful. The deep thought, care and conservation from her garments is there to be seen visually, to be felt whilst wearing and to be known whilst ordering.
Ordering a custom lingerie set with Alycia was a pleasure with clear communication, problem solving with body shape and size to fit and the final product being nothing less than inspiring. Thank you Emiah, for my little set of dreams."
"Ciara is a striking yet beautiful classic black set with a well heeled style. The high cut french knicker and cut out bra against the delicate floral style pattern makes for an arresting combination all whilst being exceptionally sophisticated with rich beaded black alencon lace. I really think that the choice of lace makes this entire set as it has an ‘illusion’ impression about it where the beading against the ‘netting’ on the fabric mottles between black and sheer which not only is the ‘in thing’ at the moment but is just so so beautiful against skin tones." - Excerpt taken from The Lingerie Raven, written by Cassie
