Over the last nine years at Violet Flamingo I have created bespoke clothing for the individual client. Throughout the years of creating bespoke pieces, I have gained so much knowledge of how to pattern cut garments for all sizes, shapes and sexes and this is something that I’m beyond proud of!
I have developed this new range for the online store to bring you luxury garments that can be worn in a variety of ways, for years to come.
Most of the designs I create I actually own myself, a lot of these pieces come to life when I or one of my friends need that special something in our wardrobes. VF was actually born because me and my mates used to go out and enjoy being overdressed in our local pub, people used to see us standing out and having a good night, this gained me my initial bespoke commissions.
I create quality garments because I truly understand first-hand how clothing can change and empower people. I want each of my clients to feel great in VF, so they feel they’re able to take on the world and look bloody glorious whilst doing it!
Violet Flamingo isn’t just a job, Violet Flamingo is my life!
Never save your pieces for special occasions, wear them all the time and in as many ways as possible. We need to feel fabulous every day!
Don’t feel intimidated by the word bespoke and never feel nervous about visiting the Violet Flamingo studio. I’m a Northern lass through and through and the studio is super chilled and laid back, I’ll even make you a cup of tea! Whether you're calling in for a bespoke consultation or to try on pieces from the range, lets just have fun and get creative.
My passion is to create limited edition garments, I don’t want to manufacture thousands of the same item because I want to keep my lovely followers unique! The online store will always have a core capsule collection but once a month I will be dropping limited edition pieces, which won’t be manufactured again.

MADE IN THE UK AND BEING RESPONSIBLE FLAMINGOS!
It's always been important to me to keep the brand as conscious as possible. When I say conscious, what I mean is I do my absolute best to minimise the brand's impact on the world around us.
I manufacture all of my products within the UK, either in the VF studio or at my approved sister factories which are within Greater Manchester. I try to keep the transportation of the materials and finished items to a minimum.
All garments and accessories ship direct from the VF studio in our branded recyclable packaging.
As a brand, saying you're conscious is not something that’s checked off on a list, every day you make decisions for the company to help consider your impact, VF will always endeavour to do so.
THE VF STUDIO
Violet Flamingo is based in Ebor Studios, Littleborough. Ebor is a fabulous space which is home to a variety of artists and makers, we all inspire each other every day and collaborate on creative projects together, such as the digital print scarves in the online store! Ebor hosts a variety of events as we have a fabulous gallery space and a community garden, visit Ebor Studio for more information.
Believe it or not VF only has four members of staff! I was actually on my own for the first six years juggling all the jobs in the studio, but three years ago my university friend Em joined the team. Em’s role within the business is providing you with all the social media updates, Facebook Live events and generally keeping me in check! We’ve also recently had two new additions join the team, Jasmin has just graduated from Bolton University and she’s in the studio most days giving me and Em a helping hand and finally we have the amazingly talented Marlene, a sample machinist with years of industry experience who helps manufacture some of our wonderful garments.
