The role of our Designers is to create innovative and exquisite designs for the lingerie and ready to wear markets. We work with the worlds leading lace manufacturers, for supply to the major High Street retailers and Designer brands.

The creative process begins with an initial idea where our designers work closely with clients, building on strong relationships to produce bespoke sketch work according to design requests. We also continually update our own design collection, focusing on ever changing trends within the fashion industry.

Our Designers have access to the UK's largest textile trend library, including forecasters such as Carlin, Peclers, Nelly Rodi and Style Sight, complimenting our own extensive vintage lace archive.

We pride ourselves on producing exclusive designs that not only look beautiful visually, but are also technically accurate. At this stage, we liaise with the Draughting team and the Lace Manufacturer, to enable us to make the most from their yarns and the machinery available.

Our initial designs are hand drawn in pencil. A thread drawing is then produced to ensure the design is practical for the machines capabilities. The design is scanned into the computer, and refined using brushes and technology to add intricate net details and textures to produce a C.A.D. (Computer Aided Design). This we feel simulates as closely as possible, a piece of lace.

The final computer image design is then submitted to the customer for their approval or added to our current design collection, which we showcase at the INTERFILIERE trade fairs throughout the year. Customers are also welcome to visit our office at any time, or alternatively, our designers can arrange a customer visit to discuss new design developments.
