This has been a very natural genesis of 30 years of working in fashion. I originally trained as a textile designer and started my career creating velvet scarves and women's accessories which sold all over the world. This gave me a unique insight into production and retailing and a clear understanding of what makes certain materials special and how to work with them to achieve the very best results. In 2000 I opened a boutique on London's Fulham Road specialising in made to measure womenswear, which gave me an invaluable training in working with figures of all shapes and sizes. In 2010 after the birth of my daughter Emmanuelle, I established British made bespoke childrenswear label milliemenau. This enabled me to build my brilliant tailoring team and develop relationships with the very best suppliers. After much customer demand for well made womenswear that really fitted, Ridley London was born.
Above all, we put personal service at the heart of everything we do at Ridley. We want to build happy and lasting relationships with each one of our customers. You’ll often find me in our London store or on one of our event stands. Meeting, understanding and helping customers is intrinsic to the creative process. All of our stylists are highly trained and experienced and really understand the subtle nuances of physique, colour, style and cut. Ultimately how to get the best out of each individual and make their shopping experience enjoyable and memorable. Likewise our pattern cutters, tailors and seamstresses are second to none, which gives me incredible confidence in the quality of our garments. A quality you’ll notice with every wear.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or I can be of any assistance. We’re here to help.
