Katja Nuutinen – Couturier
-A great designer outfit is so much more than a drawing on the paper. It is all about how the design works with your personality, how the correct proportions bring the look together, how the right shade of fabric makes you radiant and about every tiny detail, tuck and stitch in that piece which is lovingly made for you. We put this intricate puzzle together to make sure you look stunning when it’s your moment to shine!-“

In her studio in Wimbledon she creates beautiful pieces of bespoke couture designs working closely with her clients.

Katja likes to make you feel at ease and to enjoy the special experience of having your dream outfit designed and made for you.

We continuously work with out suppliers to reduce and use environmentally friendly packaging and materials.
The fabrics we use are from nature. We mostly use silks, wool and linen in both uppers and linings of our designs. We even use silk thread to put everything together as every little helps in reducing our environmental footprint.
