Welcome to Frock Goddess
My mission is to give women the opportunity to get married without the expense and waste that often comes with wedding territory.
I love simple, low waste design and using sustainable fabrics. I have also collected some amazing vintage pieces over the years - some of which I will re-work or use the fabric if it is beyond wear.
I started this business after my second wedding at Victoria Baths Manchester in 2017. I was in my 40s and didn't want the bling and fuss of a big fancy wedding. My husband and I are both creative and didn't have lots of spare cash. We decided to do as much as possible ourselves. That's me in the picture wearing the dress that I made myself of course!
It got me thinking that there must be many other women like me who want a stylish wedding but don't want to spend a fortune or create lots of waste.
In addition to the fashion I also stock a fabulous range of all things wedding related - from hair pieces, bags, and garters to gifts, confetti, and cards. In fact you don't need to be getting married or going to a special occasion to find beautiful goodies that you'll love.
Everything I stock is produced by small independent businesses and is ethical and sustainable.
My Fashion Credentials ...
I have have been sewing since I was 15 years old and have been passionate about fashion, design ever since.
I have several qualification in fashion design and construction including an NVQ in Fashion Design; and Advanced Pattern Cutting qualification; and a recent qualification on Advanced Construction from the London School of Fashion.
I am obsessed with dresses! My studio is my happy place,
However, I am mindful that fashion creates waste. I therefore use sustainable fabrics and particularly love using deadstock fabrics and fabrics leftover from other projects for smaller items. I also love re-working pieces that are no longer wearable. Therefore, when you buy from Frock Goddess you can feel confident that you are making a sustainable and ethical choice.
