About The Designer
Hello, I’m Bridie, creative director of Born To Thread
Now this is story all about how my life got twist turned upside down….
(your all singing now aren’t you)
Born to Thread was created in 2014 specialising in bespoke womenswear and alternative bridal wear for the non-traditional bride – though all ideas are welcome, I love a challenge!
My mission is to offer quality designs that make women feel confident in what they wear no matter what shape or size, I pride myself in creating sustainable elegant garments with a creative twist that will last a lifetime.
Ever since I was little I was always draping fabric around everything, drawing pretty dresses and even cutting holes in the middle of the fabric to make something! (sorry mum, at least I know how to cut out properly now!)
I always admired my mum and grandma making clothes and every opportunity I got to help I would, so I guess my passion stated young.
Little Fashionista Bridie
I studied fashion and textiles throughout college and then went on to study at Cleveland College of Art and Design, 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.
I always knew I wanted to run my own business and from this Born To Thread was born.
I have now launched an online shop of limited run designs and customised faux leather jackets for badass brides and rocking babes.
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.
*Slow fashion – is not your typical throw away fashion trend, it is a movement that prides itself on been sustainable and is made to last.
Buy less, choose well.
