Exciting times ahead for Guisborough based shop Madame Me Me as they prepare to launch their brand new own range of bespoke clothing. I was lucky enough to have a sneaky peak at the new items as I worked on the photoshoot doing the makeup to showcase the new collection.
For anyone who hasn’t yet been to Madame Me Me, you really need to go. Stepping in to this shop is like walking in to a quirky treasure trove of amazing interior décor, unique collection of clothing and accessories as well as jewellery and gifts. Lucky Guisborough! It is a family run emporium based at 99 Westgate (Guisborough High Street) which boasts an old fashioned personal and friendly service. They offer special shopping services such as personal shopping, professional interior design as well as exclusive ladies evenings. Nicholas Harvey-James Langley (Nick) teamed up with talented seamstress Amy Coulson to design and create a whole new range of bespoke clothing and their hard work over the last few weeks hasn’t been in vain. The collection is really beautiful. The garments are very wearable (can be worn casually or dressed up for special occasions) and are also one size which truly flatter all shapes. This was proven by using 2 models on the photoshoot (one being Amy who has a very tall and petite figure) and the other model Gracey being shorter in height and has a gorgeous “normal” figure at a dress size 14. Both of these girls looked very different in the items as you’ll see in the images however both pulled off the range beautifully.
