We work with small businesses, startups, aspiring designers and students at different stages of their projects.
We can help with the development of an idea and create the visual material necessary to make the patterns. Depending on the project, we can also take care of sampling and production.
Our clients have different levels of experience so don’t worry if you don’t have the technical knowledge or drawing skills, we are here to help.
All the following services can be either provided in person at our studio or remotely.
Here are our services in detail:
DESIGN AND DESIGN CONSULTANCY
We can help with either a single design or develop a cohesive and complete collection of clothing and fashion accessories.
During our meetings, we will listen to your objectives, discuss your ideas and support you through every stage of your creative project.
We will explain how to deal with aspects of designing such as understanding product construction, creating a mood board, choosing the right materials, defining a colour palette, calculating cost price and mark up for your designs and more.
SKETCHING AND ILLUSTRATION
We can help translate your ideas into sketches and illustrations.
Fashion sketches and illustrations are the first step in bringing your ideas to life.
The basic purpose is communication. They express the mood of the collection/item as well as the general specifications of each product, showing how the final product will eventually look.
We can create technical drawings of your design(s) using Adobe Illustrator.
They are black and white digital drawings showing the product from different sides to display all seams, top stitching, hardware, and any other design details.
Technical drawings are essential to guarantee clear communication between all parties working on your project, to avoid mistakes and wasting time, money and resources.
PROTOTYPING & PRODUCTION
Depending on the nature of the project, we can realise prototypes and small runs of production of garments in leather, vegan leather and non-stretch fabric. Please get in touch with us to check if we can help with your project.
Depending on the complexity of the product(s), we can carry out small to medium bulk production of your design(s).
We only require a minimum of 5 pieces of the same style.

Having only just recently started my own experimenting with leather, my visit to Sara and Melissa's studio was perfect. Sara was a very attentive and engaging teacher who was more than happy to answer all my questions. It was highly useful to see a leather workshop with my own eyes to appreciate the skill and artistry involved. In the 4 hours I was there we covered many of the basics of leathercraft and best practice. I also had the chance to learn and use the sewing machines. It's been worthwhile and I think these workshops would be invaluable for anyone wanting to learn how to create with leather. Many thanks Sara and Melissa (and Juno)! Read Less
