Welcome to Ellie Macphee - Couture
My background is a lifetime in fashion and making clothes, developed from learning to sew as a child, this led me to gaining a Diploma in Fashion & Design. I successfully ran my own Bridal & Special Occasions wear business where I designed and made bespoke outfits locally in Pembrokeshire and further afield in Cardiff and London.
I am inspired by the beautiful costumed films such as My Fair Lady, Elizabeth 1st and Moulin Rouge; rich fabrics, flowers and Art Nouveau where the sinuous extended curvatious lines suit my passion for orchids and clematis in their many varied forms. The wonderful costumes and exquisite lace and design detail of the Tudor Dynasty is always an inspiration to me.
Now with over 25 years experience I will be working from my studio combining my love for fine fabrics, classic design, embroidery and attention to detail, to create exquisitely made outfits.
I would be pleased to create with your consultation an exclusive outfit for your special occasion.
