Bridie studied fashion and textiles throughout college and then university, graduating in 2008 with a FDA Fashion Production then in 2010 with a BA(Hons) in Fashion Enterprise, developing skills in advanced pattern cutting, garment construction and business.
Born to Thread was created in 2013 specialising in quality womenswear and bridalwear producing beautiful bespoke garments all designed and handmade from Bridie's small studio in North Yorkshire.
Inspired very much by 'slow fashion' Bridie loves to work alongside her clients acknowledging their personal taste and creating that one-off piece they will cherish forever.
2017 is setting off to be an exciting year as Born to Thread has just launch its online shop of limited run designs and customised faux leather jackets for badass brides and rocking babes.
Born To Thread invites you to an informal relaxed consultation in Bridie's home studio or Skype appointments are now available, where we will discuss your ideas on design, fabrics and colours to create and help me understand exactly how you would like your unique garment to look.
From the consultation process I will then work on the design of your garment involving fabrics, colour ways and all other information we have discussed.
A made to measure garment takes time with care and attention. Working with your personal measurements a toile garment is made alongside several fittings to make sure we get the perfect fit. From this personal experience your will see the garment come to life with experienced techniques.
