Victoria Seraphina launch
Timperley based designer, Victoria Clegg will describe the development of her luxury loungewear brand, Victoria Seraphina, from original concept to its launch in September. Victoria's passion for the golden era of Hollywood is reflected in the vintage elegance and sumptuous fabrics of her robes, separates, lingerie and bridal wear. Elle Magazine recognised the beauty of her garments and featured them in December 2016 - long before the collection was even complete!
Establishing her new business has required Victoria to tackle a steep learning curve, gaining skills in marketing, accounts, IT and dealing with suppliers. For Victoria, the design and creation of the garments is the easy bit. However, the work is labour intensive as Victoria creates her own patterns and hand sews every piece. For example, her signature satin robe requires seven metres of fabric and 15 hours to make.
The evening will be an opportunity to see and perhaps try on some of these gorgeous creations. There will also be a prize draw with the winner receiving a beautiful item from the collection.
Victoria was scheduled to speak at the October meeting of the The Creative Network. Unfortunately, she had a nasty road accident on the way to the venue and ended up in hospital! Victoria is now recovered and looking forward to this new date.
