Amazing Emily’s was established in 2004 by Emily Smith. She specialises in making beautiful, one-off and bespoke dresses. Emily can provide you with a complete service, right from your first consultation all the way through to your final fitting. She pays great attention to details and will work with you to create you a perfect couture gown all of your own.
When Emily was a young girl, she loved to play dress up and make believe. She loved to imagine she was a princess in a beautiful ball gown and this is when her passion was ignited. She loves period costume, especially the fashions and dressing trends from the 18th century.
She’s always been creative with a pencil and piece of paper and has been sketching and designing dresses from the age of 9. She continued with this passion throughout school and after leaving with GCSEs in Art and Textiles, she continued on to do a two year A level course in Textiles.
Emily’s mantra in life is that ‘you can never stop learning’, with this is mind she has done further City and Guilds courses in Fashion Tailoring, Embroidery and Lingerie. She still continues with her fashion education by regularly attending courses to learn new textiles techniques.
In 2002 Emily began to take smallish orders from friends and family and since then has gone from strength to strength, however one of her earliest and biggest jobs was a very grand and beautiful three-piece Prom dress for herself, which she still has today.
All of Emily’s designs are guaranteed to be one-offs. She has a real passion for making bespoke bridal gowns and first and foremost she would class herself as a wedding dress designer. She builds up a special relationship with each individual bride and will never repeat a design. All of Emily’s gowns are made to order. If you want a creation that is out of this world fantastic then Amazing Emily’s is here to serve. Emily’s speciality is making steel boned corsets. As well as making the bride look stunning on her special day she can also make wonderful Mother Of The Bride outfits, as well as evening and prom dresses. If you are a believer that what’s underneath should be just as stunning as what goes on top then speak to her about her corset and lingerie sets – all again made to order.
Emily loves to work with really luxurious fabrics, especially silks and gorgeous lace. She is really a Magpie for sparkles and loves to use Swarovski crystals in her creations. One of her ideal commissions would be for a wedding gown made from vintage lace, however when she gets an order for something out of the ordinary and very unusual you will find her in her element. When Emily is able to work with a variety of fabrics and lots of different colours, that’s when she finds her creative juices really start to flow.
Emily is a very gifted seamstress and loves to design special creations. She gets as much enjoyment from making these beautiful gowns as she does from seeing people wear them.
