Toni Pickles is the founder and designer at Get Waisted. She originally trained on Savile Row and later introduced the bespoke corset as a signature item before branching out with a full range.
This professional tailoring background can be seen in all Toni’s creations. Get Waisted designs frequently take their inspiration from an age of elegance – reflecting 1950’s tailoring and silhouettes. Toni believes in creating designs that complement and enhance the feminine form. She likes to use sumptuous, flowing fabrics combined with a sophisticated approach to draping.
Toni feels “That real satisfaction comes from delivering exactly what her customers want – and the smile on their faces when they first try on a garment made especially for them. This does not have to be an elaborate ball-gown – the Get Waisted service is equally for smart daywear or stylish cocktail dresses.”
The end result is a clothing range that simultaneously makes an impact and leaves the wearer feeling really special.
Toni says: “I was so excited the first time I had the opportunity to showcase a collection during London Fashion Week. Since then we have gone on to present both at our own catwalk shows as well as to contribute to various shows across London, the South-East and Sussex”.
