How would you define your business service?

Dawn Clarke Designs are all about creating ethically handcrafted and bespoke children’s wear of the highest quality for very special occasions.

What do you pride yourself on being able to give your wedding clients?

I truly love working closely with every bride throughout the whole process, starting with designing the outfits together, choosing embellishments and fabrics. I also encourage brides to incorporate fabrics from treasured family items, carefully stitching together ‘something old’ and ‘something new.’ The result is something that’s bespoke, sustainable, and much more meaningful for the bride and groom.

Previous examples of commissions include Flower Girl dresses made from family wedding gowns, and a little boy’s waistcoat and vintage shorts made from a grandfather’s reworked blue and grey herringbone tweed jacket.

If you would like to learn more, give me a call – it would be my absolute joy to have a no-obligation telephone call and talk through some lovely ideas.

What three tips do you often give to your wedding clients?

1. Don’t leave buying the flower girl dresses and page boy outfits until the last minute.

2. Consider sustainable options for the children, which in turn create a new family heirloom.

3. Choose fabrics that will not irritate the children’s sensitive skin.

Dawn Clarke Designs offers a fantastic way for engaged couples to incorporate important family memories into their big day.
