Siobhan is an Irish Gaelic name pronounced ‘Shevonne’. Siobhan (known as Kate which is her middle name) lives and works in Auckland, New Zealand after graduating from Auckland University of Technology with a Diploma in Fashion Technology in 2010. She was born in 1988 and attended High School in Henderson, Auckland before going on to university.
I currently offer a bespoke dressmaking service, which can be anything from everyday wear to evening wear.
I design and create patterns which means you can have a unique, customised dress designed specifically for you. If you find a pattern you particularly like I can alter it to suit and make sure it fits you perfectly.
What is the main influence on your style?
I’m influenced by menswear and like to incorporate that style into women’s clothing. For example:
• Simplicity of men’s clothing by the use of colour, pattern print fabric, style lines
• Details such as a yoke on shirt with contrast fabric or cuff on shirt with one corner turned up.
• Creating an oversized section of the garment e.g. collar on a coat, large cuff etc
