Thai Silk sewn in England: a winning combination

Simple elegance and beautiful fabrics combine in an enchanting mercifully meringue-free site at Caroline Parkes.

I can do no better than quote from her site:

Caroline Parkes started designing wedding dresses 30 years ago whilst training with one of the last great British couturiers, Hardy Amies. Here she learnt how to recognize perfection in a dress and has never veered from aiming for the best in each gown created by herself or her staff.

Caroline set up her business 20 years ago in a spare room in her flat. Within one year she had a dress featured in Brides magazine and her exquisite and original dresses were soon in great demand. Since then her business has thrived and expanded, and is currently based in Wandsworth Town, where all the gowns are handmade by a talented and experienced staff.
