Hi I’m Louise, designer and owner of Oh My Honey. I started making clothes as soon as I was able to hold a pair of scissors! But I have been doing it professionally for 5 years. After graduating with a degree in Costume Design with Textiles, and Diploma’s in Fashion and Millinery, I went on to work in the theatre in the West End, Monte Carlo and Dublin. It was awesome, but I decided that I wanted to dress many more women, in beautiful, handmade clothes that made them feel amazing. I started up the brand Oh My Honey in 2009 with the aspiration to design and sell 1950′s style dresses that had been skilfully handmade in the UK; giving customers the opportunity to have dresses made to their own measurements or even in their own fabrics. The dresses take the classic 1950′s elements, with a twist of modern style, and have been selling all over the world since the label was launched over 5 years ago.
Although I am fascinated by costumes from all eras, the style of the 50′s woman has always been my favourite. Glamorous, feminine and chic, the nipped in waists and full skirts make any women look fantastic, and I love making and wearing them!
All dresses are made to order in the studios in Brighton, by myselff or one of my skilled seamstresses, that way you know you will be getting a beautiful garment that has been made with care and attention.
As well as the ready to wear collection ; featuring designs that can be worn day or night in a vast selection of fabrics, prints and colours, Oh My Honey also has a Couture Collection with dresses made in high quality fabrics and intricate designs, and in November 2011 the first of many wedding dress collections was launched for 1950's inspired brides that want something a little different!
It has been a great 5 years for Oh My Honey, with several features in the top UK wedding blogs and features in national and international fashion and bridal magazines. Every year gets more exciting as the brand grows, creating more dream gowns for brides and making women all over the world dresses that they feel absolutely fabulous in!
I pride myself on making beautifully made dresses and great customer care, if you ever have any questions, or need help selecting a dress or fabrics, don't hesitate to get in touch.
