December is finally here and bringing with it Christmas cheer, decorations…and the stressful search for the perfect present.
The shops are overwhelmingly full of gift ideas but why not buy something truly bespoke and unique? Introducing the Semple Dress Collection from Maggie Semple Limited – bespoke shift dresses, cut from original designs and made to order from a selection of fine Italian fabrics and prints.
The Semple Dress Collection is a collaboration between Semple and the designer, Hilla Brunhilde Schönburn. Like many of us, Maggie struggled to find well-made dresses that were priced reasonably. She said, “I am someone who likes to wear well made, bespoke clothing and so after sourcing my perfect dress I was unsurprised to discover that many other women shared my vision of finding the dream dress. Yet finding well cut dresses, made from exquisite fabrics, that are sized and priced appropriately can often be hard to come by.”
The dresses feature two different designs, the Ophelia and the Bianca. Ranging from black, navy and a speckled pattern, the dresses are all handmade using the finest Italian fabrics.
“I’ve never had a dress fit me so well. The colour, the shape and the neckline all really reflect my personality and style. It’s great to have that key piece that can transition from a professional environment to the evening with such ease.” – Tessa Sanderson, Olympic javelin thrower and heptathlete
Each of the dresses comes with a sleeveless counterpart and are available in sizes 8-16. The ready-to-wear range starts from just £250 each. However, if you want something more personal, then Maggie offers a bespoke service for your own unique and individual dress.
The personal touch is apparent throughout the whole process, with every customer receiving a unique code enabling you to access your dress detail on the personalised Semple app. International customers can use the simple online measuring service, which MSL say is both ‘fun and flattering’.
A woman’s wardrobe is an extension of her personality and as such should be unique, distinct and beautiful. Revolutionising British tailoring for women, all dresses are ethically manufactured within the quaint MSL atelier, based in the heart of Covent Garden. From inception to creation Semple allows clients to take the reins of the design process, selecting an ideal fit and design for their body shape, before selecting from a variety of fabrics, prints and style. Semple will work closely with clients to ensure they leave with the bespoke dress of their dreams.
