GetWaisted Fashion Boutique Sussex going to London Fashion Week!

By on Aug 9, 2016 in Blog, Latest News | 0 comments

It’s that time of year again when we can escape the confines of our Sussex fashion boutique and visit London Fashion week! It’s a time for everyone who’s anyone to rub shoulders with the celebrity elite, get up to date with the season’s hottest trends and surround themselves with the finest fashion. Organised by the British Fashion Council, London Fashion Week takes place twice a year and gives the world’s best designers a chance to showcase their seasonal collections in front of a sea of fellow designers, paparazzi and celebs. The next event is coming up in just over a month, between the 16th and 20th September, and will showcase the SS17 collections in various locations across London. We can’t wait! Owner of GetWaisted fashion boutique in Sussex and fashion designer Toni Pickles, will be attending London Fashion Week to capture all the new styles. Meeting with the industry’s top designers to view their latest designs, Toni will be attending some of the event’s biggest shows. We realise that not everyone has the luxury of owning a Anya Hindmarch or Mulberry creation, and at GetWaisted we specialise in creating bespoke, made to measure garments. So keep an eye out during the London Fashion Week coverage and if you spot something you like, give us a call. Toni can either recreate an entire garment inspired by the original, or elements of it, to your specification. All you need to do is make an appointment to discuss the design and we’ll do the rest, it’s that simple. But don’t worry if you can’t wait until London Fashion Week to splurge on some new summer styles, we have plenty of ready to wear garments and accessories available now from our online...

Glorious events need glorious outfits!

By on Mar 29, 2016 in Uncategorised | 0 comments

We’re all delighted to see spring daffodils, cuddly lambs and the tasty temptation of hot cross buns, but how about thinking ahead for an organised and stress-free time, as well as turning more than a few heads this coming event ‘season’ with clothing to be seen in from our Steyning boutique? The south-east has a wealth of high profile diary dates each summer and there’s nothing worse than turning up at a prestige event only to find you are but one of several ladies wearing the same outfit. The answer – a sumptuous, made to measure outfit or, for the gentlemen, a bespoke tailored suit. Made to measure is not just for ball gowns – how about a day dress for Ascot, Glorious Goodwood, Henley, the Epsom Derby, Wimbledon, the Jaeger-Le Coultre Cup, the Glyndebourne Festival or Goodwood Revival/Vintage (for the full diary, see http://www.classicalbritain.com/the-english-season/english-season-calendar)? You’ll be the subject of so many admiring glances and know you’re the only one with a hand-made bespoke outfit created in a colour palette and fabric texture suited especially for you, your skin tone and designed to make the most of your shape. Get ready for the great British summer! Events start in May with various local Ladies Days at the races (Lingfield, Plumpton) then June (Epsom Derby, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Wimbledon), July (Henley Royal Regatta, final of the Veuve Cliquot Gold Cup), August (Brighton Races Ladies Day, Fontwell Park Ladies Day) and September (Hickstead). There’s also the cruise season where we can again help by putting together a collection of bespoke clothing or a capsule wardrobe for you to take away, knowing you’ll be able to sit at the Captain’s Table wearing something so special and unique, you only have to focus on the task ahead: relaxing and enjoying yourself! Contact us now to book a consultation for your Get Waisted experience.

Spread the love this Valentine’s Day!

By on Feb 3, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

Whether it’s a divine piece of bespoke corsetry, some fabulous jewellery or a fashion piece to make every heart melt, we have it here at the Get Waisted boutique in Steyning. And we have a special 25% discount on our fabulous naughty but nice corsets. Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate romance and love, but its origins are actually rather dark. It’s believed to have started in ancient Rome with the feast of Lupercalia where drunken men would hit willing women with the hides of slain animals, believing it would make them more fertile. The ancient Romans may also be responsible for the name of our modern day of love. Emperor Claudius II executed two men called Valentine on February 14th (different years) in the 3rd century AD. Their martyrdom was honoured by the Catholic Church with the celebration of St Valentine’s Day, although there appears to be some confusion with other festivals and rituals in later centuries. As the years went on, the holiday grew somewhat more enchanting. Chaucer and Shakespeare romanticised Valentine’s, which gained popularity throughout Britain and the rest of Europe. Handmade paper cards became the thing to give in the Middle Ages. Eventually, the tradition made its way to America. The industrial revolution lead to factory-made cards in the 19th century and in 1913, Hallmark Cards began mass producing Valentines. Woe betide any partner who forgets Valentine’s Day! But here’s the good news … you still have a little time left to grab that something special. Take your pick from our superb range of high fashion affordable clothing, jewellery, beautiful corsets, handbags and other accessories. There’s even something for the man in your life too! Some, though, will celebrate Valentine’s in a SAD (that’s Single Awareness Day) way but that’s even more reason to come along to Get Waisted and choose something really great to make you feel special. Will it be some knitwear to snuggle up with, a coat to take you out on Friday night, a bangle to dangle, or some stiletto shoes or boots to make your point?! Don’t forget – come and see us soon in Steyning. Those sale pieces won’t hang around for long, and if you need something...

Does your little black book include your couturier’s number?

By on Oct 26, 2015 in Uncategorised | 0 comments

Your new BFF could very well be your dressmaker. You know when you try on an item in the high street (or even in the best boutiques) and each garment in the same size fits differently? It’s certainly irritating – we say ignore the size and try on as many as you can till you find the right one. In the same way as you might buy a dress or suit off the peg and decide to get it altered to fit properly, your dressmaker can become your best friend by doing the same with a vintage item. A Channel 4 programme, “This Old Thing” with Dawn O’Porter, featured Alice from Brighton using a dressmaker. Alice is convinced, even though she can see the appeal of vintage fashion, it wasn’t for her. With a few clever changes, Dawn tried to persuade Alice that vintage clothes could look sophisticated and unique for her. Here’s a link to the episode so you can find out what happened: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/this-old-thing-the-vintage-clothes-show/on-demand/56973-004 Buying a one-off can mean it won’t be perfect for you. An older piece of clothing will probably be in the style of the trend at the time, for example a nipped in waist, padded shoulders or heavy netting under the skirt, which may not suit your shape. Toni Pickles, designer, seamstress and tailor at Get Waisted, can perform amazing things and will advise you on the best way of making it perfect for you; something your best friend may not always feel they can tell you! Whether it’s adding panels, narrowing sleeves, skirt shortening, removing shoulder pads, you too can have the best of both worlds: a bespoke item made to measure which is still vintage.     Restyling is definitely the hot topic right now! So put Toni’s contact details in your little black book and always have your new BFF on hand.
