British Designer Rowena Gill has been commissioned by top fashion houses such as Yves Saint Laurent, Emmanuel Ungaro and Christian Lacroix; her work has taken her from Paris, to London, to New York.
She is renowned for her attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship, working with fine wools, silks, linens, and embroidery sourced from all over the world. She offers the unique and very personal experience of bespoke tailoring.
All little girls believe in fairies, elves and magic spells and Rowena was no exception, but these childhood images cast a spell over her and continue to do so as the main inspiration for her fairytale designs.
Whilst studying fashion in France as a teenager, fate was to intervene when - walking through the small back streets of Paris early one morning - something sparkling in a dustbin caught her eye. On closer inspection, she discovered it to be a box of beautiful antique glass beads. She was approached by an elderly gentleman who explained that it was he who had discarded the box whilst in the process of clearing out his attic; he told her that he had more if she would like them....
Ever since this auspicious beginning, Rowena has been designing and making her fantastical repertoire of bejewelled necklaces, chokers, bags, and dresses. She works with Swarovski Crystal, and her work is often incredibly intricate, some of her larger pieces taking months at a time to complete.
Rowena's fine eye for colour and detail combined with her stunning, innovative designs have brought her continued success; she created the jewelled hairpieces for Yves Saint Laurent's last fashion show and has sold her creations in fashion capitals all over the world. Having been commissioned to contribute to several Haute Couture shows including Emmanuel Ungaro and Christian Lacroix, these giants of the fashion world wrote references for Rowena which enabled her to gain her green card and to live and work in America as an original artist.
Rowena is now based in Arundel, West Sussex. From her shop in Tarrant St. she designs and creates made-to-measure evening gowns, wedding dresses and suits. Men’s tailoring is also available.
With much success, she has had her pieces worn by:
