My interest in fashion started as a young girl watching my mother design and sew dancing and ice skating costumes for me and my sister to wear and compete in.
I knew I wanted to pursue a career in something creative and coupled with my passion for fashion, art and sewing I enrolled on a footwear and leathers goods course which led to the start of my career designing footwear and accessories for well known retailers and brands in Spain and the UK.
Amy Elizabeth Bespoke - the beginning
In 2010 a very close friend of mine was planning her wedding and was really struggling to find the perfect accessories to compliment her dress. She really wanted a small bridal bag to carry a few essentials; such as tissues, compact, lipstick etc but couldn't anything which looked special enough to go with her dress and then leave on the top table along with her bouquet.
I decided to design and make her the perfect bespoke bag as part of her wedding present and just started experimenting with patterns, fabrics, and embellishments. I wanted her bag to be something that she would really cherish, a precious memento of her big day, and decided to have her and her husbands names and the date of their wedding printed on a label inside the bag.
My friend adored her bag, and following further request for bags from other friends, and friends of friends, I decided to set up Amy Elizabeth Bespoke - designing and making beautiful handmade bespoke bags for weddings and other special occasions.
