About me / About business or organisation:
DIYcouture publishes books that enable people to make their own clothes. The books are an alternative to and a step away from traditional sewing patterns. They use colourful diagrams and pictures to enable inexperienced seamsters to make personally tailored, professional looking garments from scratch.

DIYcouture aims:

-To stimulate widespread enthusiasm for sewing in generations x, y and z
- To empower people to create for themselves to a high-standard, enabling them to opt out of buying into brand culture.
- To enable people to access affordable clothing that has not been produced using sweatshop labour.
- To build empathy with the thousands of invisible pairs of hands around the world that spend their time skilfully creating the clothes we wear.
- To inspire people to slow down- to take the time to make a garment that is precious and long-lasting, rather than comfort-shop for disposable items which add to the worlds increasing piles of landfill.
Career history / Company history:
I have been designing garments and costumes for the past few years and began DIYcouture in June 2008.

Love your style, I read a book on Couture DIY and it was very informative and helpful.

Thankyou for your comment! I remember reading about DIY couture a couple of months ago and thinking how brilliant it was, I think I was planning to email you, about fabric shops in Manchester or something, I can't remeber now...

Hi Rosie, I design a unique range of textiles which would be suitable for some of the styles in your collection. With the aid of your diy book these could reach a very wide international market.
