Fabric shopping experience: Find the fabric for your style and for your project

"Ghislaine.... has been invaluable in sourcing the right fabric for the result I wanted for my garment". From Emma F.

bespoke & personalised

My fabric shopping experiences are available

to sewists, designers and crafters of all levels

3 experiences to help you…
  • Select the most suitable fabric for a project
  • Understand and explore fabric textures, behaviours and properties
  • Make a stylish and bold statement with Colours and prints
  • Be creative with your fabric selection process

It takes the form of a one to one interactive and fun fabric shopping experience and can be delivered in English and French.

My knowledge is supported by regular courses at London College of Fashion and seminars on Fashion Psychology and Anthropology

“Ghislaine’s expertise and knowledge has been invaluable in sourcing the right fabric for the result I wanted for my garment. Her approachable manner firmly but gently guided me through the array of available textiles and their purposes. My duck egg blue cotton satin is gorgeous, feel luxurious and is very pleasant on the skin.”

 “Séance shopping tissu à Goldhawk Road en compagnie de Ghislaine qui connait le quartier comme sa poche! Une fois qu’elle sait exactement ce que vous recherchez, il n’y a plus qu’à la suivre, d’où un gain de temps appréciable !
Excellent conseil d’experte pour le choix du tissu en fonction du projet à réaliser mais également du matériel nécessaire: fil, fermeture éclaire, ciseaux.
Ghislaine m’a également accompagné sur la réalisation de ce projet étapes par étapes. Ma première robe est presque terminée et je pense déjà a la prochaine réalisation. Une nouvelle séance de shopping tissu avec Ghislaine s’impose!”

 “It was a lovely experience being taken to Liverpool Street to buy African print fabrics. I am a fan of African fabrics so going into all of those shops with different prints and colours and different textures was a lovely experience. The fabric I saw was all good quality and reasonably priced. I am  very happy with my purchases. Going shopping really helped to inspire me to get moving on starting my clothing business. I definitely walked away form the area very happy”
