My name is Yvonne Gillon and I have been designing for most of my life and have created countless outfits for countless occasions. In 2014 I came up with the design for my Underdress sleeves. Since the launch they have been in constant demand.
During the design process I looked at the market and found there wasn’t much out there to fill this much needed gap. Any availability was black or black! and only on sale at certain times of the year. I have always thought there should be more consistency and continuity in fashion and decided from the outset that the garments I design would be available all year round, and year after year with some additions and upgrades along the way. I also feel that the personal approach is very important even though we sell online. We are always happy to answer queries on the phone and encourage clients to ring us for advice, be it on colour, size or fit. We send out fabric swatches on request.
Having worked with fabrics for many years I think you get a better idea of colour from the actual fabric rather than a photograph.
Cami Confidential was born 7 years ago when one of my couture clients had just had a mastectomy and she was conscious of the scarring after her op. All the tops in her wardrobe and on the High St were too low or too wide. She wanted a Cami that would sit higher up the chest and would not gape when leaning forward. The first Cami to be designed was the short Cami which fitted the bill perfectly, sitting comfortably over the bra, the pretty lace neckline adding confidence and femininity.
The Cami range has expanded over the years to include more styles and colours.
Whether women have had surgery, are simply modest about their décolletage, arm shy or have to cover up in the sun a product like Cami confidential gives coverage where it matters and opens up their wardrobes and saves them money.
It’s amazing how Cami Confidential has helped many women to look at their clothes and body shape with renewed positivity.
I am proud to say all our products are made to a high standard in the UK, either in our Marple, Cheshire studio or in Nottingham.
