Last week I was invited to attend one of Maggie Semple’s ‘Keep it Semple’ events at her gorgeous atelier. A diverse group of professional women who share a love of beautiful clothes chatted over drinks and nibbles in a gorgeous 17th century building hidden away in Covent Garden. Maggie founded the brand in 2010, to coincide with the publication of her book Women, Fashion, Stories which documents the treasured items of six high profile women. She produces both ready to wear and made to measure investment dresses for professional women.
We all know that clothes tell a story – particularly when they are bespoke and handmade as Maggie’s dresses are. We had a tour of the workshop – all the dresses are made by skilled seamstresses on the premises – and then had a lively discussion about ‘Our Digital Selves’ and what that means to us.
Maggie has invited me back in May to hear more about the brand, the beautiful dresses and how they are made. Watch this space….
