Speak to her today about creating the dress of your dreams!
After Elizabeth was founded after its owner; Lisa, was searching for a dress for her own wedding. Disheartened by the lack of choice and overwhelmed by the sea of ivory found in local bridal shops Lisa decided to take matters into her own hands and make her own dress.
Lisa trained as a seamstress at London College of Fashion and after graduating with a first class honours degree went to work in the costume industry, creating fantastical costumes for theatres all over the world. After creating her own wedding dress, which she assumed would be a one off, she started being asked to create more. Her clients were looking for something a little bit different, a dress that wasn't a standard off the rack ivory frock, and a service that was a little more personal.
After Elizabeth is now Lisa's full time business. Creating wedding gowns is her passion and customer service is her number one priority.
Lisa was taught to sew from a young age by her grandmother, Elizabeth, who was herself a professional seamstress and teacher. Sewing and dressmaking quickly became a passion and turned into a full time occupation.
When it came to naming her company, Lisa thought it was fitting to name it after the person who had taught her the craft and inspired her to follow her creative spirit, and so her company became After Elizabeth.
