Fashion for women, mainly over 50 , fully sustainable- clothes being made by craftspeople in and around London (mostly from the theatre sector, as I have been a freelance costume maker for many years) Materials will initially be from my collection of vintage and theatrical fabrics ,collected over a lifetime. When these are exhausted I will source as sustainably as possible. I want to democratise the design process- in many ways returning to a relationship with my clients dressmakers had before Charles Fredrick worth created the couture system. Buying from Chronos Couture will create a relationship for the life of the garment- which will be returnable for alteration, remodelling, resale and finally recycling at any time as appropriate.
Clients will be aware of the craftsmanship involved in making their garment, as I will send a short video or stills of different stages in the process- fully involving the client in the garment.
