I have been on a hiatus for a couple of years for a childcare break and am now back to working as a latex designer and pattern maker for both my own business and other latex businesses. I have sold latex clothing patterns to three other latex companies in the UK/EU whilst also undertaking studying to create higher end fashion pieces for my own brand.
I am now focussing on womenswear and crossdressing (male to female) but can produce good quality menswear for couples outfits. I have a vast array of well fitting patterns that include underwear (with correctly sized underwired bras), leggings & bodysuits, dresses, trousers, tops & shirts, jackets, hoods and more.
I am currently creating my new collection and website with an aim for this to be released in the summer of 2021. During this process, I am still available for custom clothing work and pattern making requests (either commercially for other designers or custom fitting patterns for personal latex makers). My hourly charge for custom pattern work is £25. As a general guide I can create a good fitting custom leotard pattern with sleeves in around 4 hours. My commercial patterns come in standard sizing from 6-18 but larger patterns can be made on request. The price of these vary depending on what outfit is required but as a general guide a catsuit pattern (with polo neck, fitted arms and legs) in a commercial size is £250. If multiple sizes are purchased then the price will reduce slightly. Please enquire with any requests and I will be happy to help or advise. I have men’s and women’s patterns for sale.
SAMPLES FOR SHOOTS - I have a number of samples available for hire for personal shoots. I need to list these properly but they’re all womenswear (as I sold off the menswear samples I had from previous collections) and most likely in a size 10 or 12 but there may be smaller or larger sizes so please enquire with any particular requirements.
These can be hired by way of posting them to you with a refundable deposit (which varies depending on the sample required) or I can be hired to bring samples with me to a shoot, with the latter not requiring a deposit. Rental of single pieces starts at £20 plus postage and increases to £50 per item, depending on the piece requested. My hourly rate for attending a shoot with a minimum of one outfit per hour is £30. This includes up to two models and for larger shoots the price will vary, so please enquire. Travel charges are 45p/mile for anything over 15 miles from Leicester.
SALES - I sell outfits as well as hire out samples. Everything is made in Leicester and I am now using Supatex latex sheeting. All of the photos currently on this profile are of garments made with Radical Rubber but I am changing to Supatex with the new collection and any other custom work from April 2021.
COLLABORATIONS - I am happy to do collaborations with female or femme models with both videographers and photographers. I am also open to beauty shoots. These TF shoots must depict my clothing in a way that I want to market it, so sometimes it won’t make sense for me to collaborate on something if the outcome won’t work for my needs. I am happy to hire out my clothing instead, if this is the case. Just ask about a possible collaboration though because ‘if you don’t ask, you don’t get’!
MINI PERSONAL BIO - I am a 35 year old woman with a passion for well fitting clothing that enhances confidence in the wearer. I have a mobility disability due to being hit by a stolen car in 2008, which has left me with one leg being semi paralysed and I now need to use crutches outside my home. I also had scoliosis surgery when I was 14 as I have an S shape curve in my spine. These two different aspects of my life have had a big impact on how I dress, from being embarrassed as a young teenager to show my torso to having my torso and legs being a-symmetric and not in line with commercial clothing patterns. Along with this, when I put weight on it generally sits on my top hip and stomach, which can make wanting to dress in form fitting clothing a bit harder sometimes. With all of this life experience I know how important it is to have clothing that fits well and works for your body shape to enhance the confidence you have in whatever part you want to show off, or even conceal. Body confidence is so important but I’m realistic when it comes to dressing myself and others and I work with the customer to produce something that will want to be worn as much as possible.
I have a second PP account that was set up due to a loss of log in credentials for this one, but they are both me and I shall be closing out the other one gradually.
I don’t have any plans to attend stalls or catwalks until at least August 2021.
