Caroline Parkes is a London designer with over 30 years of experience. Over the years her dresses have featured in Brides Magazine, various TV shows and Kate Moss has even modelled her creations. With studios in Fulham and then eventually Wandsworth, Caroline led a team of seamstresses to craft her creations – selling from her own showroom in London but also into selected boutiques across the country.
After closing her business in Wandsworth after ill health in 2009, she moved to Newbury to escape to the country, live a quieter life and semi retire. However, after visiting Mrs Jones just after its opening, she struck up a friendship with Laura Jones who coaxed her back into designing and the rest is history. Caroline is now back working exclusively with Mrs Jones on a small and select collection keeping it local and personal.
Her enviable reputation and experience working at Hardy Amies and then creating her own label means Caroline is a perfectionist. Her dresses use only the finest silks and laces, creating classic and elegant dresses which make each bride feel special and beautiful.
Every dress is handmade in Newbury and each bride will be fitted by Caroline over a series of consultations where the dress will be hand crafted to fit perfectly. We are incredibly proud and honoured to have her working with us and to offer such a unique service. Caroline’s dresses are priced between £2800-3800 depending on style. The price includes true made to measure service so are inclusive of all fittings and alterations. Her latest collection reflects her signature style; simple, elegant and beautifully made with a wealth of passion and experience.
