Charlotte Appleby - The English Tailoress

Charlotte Appleby (The English Tailoress) is a couture dress designer with years of experience in industry.  As a dressmaker, I am known for my elegant, lace dress designs, beautifully constructed using handcraft techniques such as couture beading and embellishment with contemporary fashion deisgn. I aim to create the most flattering shape for every client. 

After training at London College of Fashion in Handcraft Tailoring in 2007 I worked in the fashion and costume industry on productions for theatre, opera and film and for couture labels that showcase at London Fashion Week and Paris Couture Week. Over the years this has developed my technical skills to create a flattering shape and astute eye for style. Combined with a passion for textiles and the arts, these influences are present in many of my designs.

I create wedding dresses, cocktail gowns and prom dresses in Bristol at Pithay Studios. I also carry out alterations and repairs in Bristol for ladies and gents. To book an appointment, please visit
