I design and make using silks and fine fabrics embellished with high quality embroidery from our professional machine, trims and/or gorgeous decorations, inspired by patterns, colours and textures in architecture and nature.
Each ’one of a kind’unique piece comes with a signed certificate stating materials used and care instructions.
I love commissions, working through design ideas with clients to create something truly special for them.
I have always loved to sew, that is me aged about 9 sewing in the kitchen! I made my first dress aged 11 with an inspirational needlework teacher - attention to detail and the highest standard of work was expected as the norm.
I set up Vee Pretty aftermaking a lingerie case as a gift inspired by myheirloom lingerie case originally my grandmother’s – she went through two World Wars and The Great Depression and I know that every morning on opening her drawer her spirits where lifted seeing her beloved lingerie case, "Hyacinths to feed the soul”.
I wanted to bring back this vintage idea: something you don’t know you want until you have one it becomes an, ‘I can’t live without’. Practical storage at home or travel for all types of lingerie and hosiery - no more worries about the cleanliness of hotel drawers!
Some people display them on the bed as part of bedroom décor, and I have designed a ‘useful’ so ‘ok’ nightdress case for people whose partners don’t like cushions on the bed.
I made myself padded shoe bags to help protect my favourite shoes and delicate handbags in the suitcase – another practical gift!
The hanging lingerie cases were designed for lingerie, nightwear, hosiery, scarves, etc. They can be hung in a wardrobe, on a hook as bedroom decoration and taken on holiday.
I buy from reputable UK suppliers and under the guidance of our local Trading Standards have created a system to keep samples and records of every item.
