Fiona Clare at work

Fiona Clare welcomes couture clients into the calm and relaxing atmosphere of her Battersea studio for an initial consultation. She will inspire you with her ideas, sketches, beautiful fabrics and trimmings from France, Italy and beyond. Fiona is an expert on integrated boning which gives a superb, flattering fit, as well as fine detailing using embroidery, beading and lace.

The initial pattern or toile is made in calico to ensure a perfect fit, with all the design details discussed before the fabric is cut. Your design will then come to life, as it is cut, fitted, lined with silk, and hand finished to perfection. Fiona Clare has a collection of coats and dress samples to inspire you.
