Special Occasion

Julie Goodwin Couture designs and makes custom made ladies clothing for special occasions including weddings, formals, racewear, events and official functions.

Inspired by classic couturiers such as Balenciaga and Dior and with a love of modern fashion and a passion for quality textiles, Julie creates designs that are one-off classics, carefully and lovingly crafted to suit and fit each client’s shape and body image.

“Several clients have been coming to me for a number of years, many because they just can’t find what they’re looking for off the rack or ready to wear. For some their body shape doesn’t fit a standard size, they’re frustrated at the poor quality of high street shop clothing or they are looking for a unique one-off piece for a special occasion.

A bespoke piece looks better and feels better because it fits, and the quality of materials and craftsmanship mean it lasts for many years.”
