About Alison

The Queen’s former in-house dressmaker is now able to offer a bespoke couture dressmaking service.

Alison Pordum’s passion for combining traditional couture dressmaking skills with modern trends and processes in fashion design means she produces clothes distinguished by their exquisite quality and style. Her long experience includes a four-year spell in the Royal Household as Dressmaker to The Queen where she was responsible for the production of all Her Majesty’s ‘in house’ outfits. Alison left her Royal post at the end of 2008 to launch her own business and develop her own distinctive range of garments in which clients enjoy the unchanging quality of haute couture enhanced by contemporary styling and the hand finishing skills of the dressmaker’s art.

The Alison Pordum Service

The first stage of creating a bespoke couture outfit is an initial discussion with Alison to discuss individual requirements and select silhouettes, colour and fabric.

From there, Alison will produce a number of sketches, supply fabric swatches and recommend trimmings.

After choosing the final design you will have your first toile fitting.

Following the final fabric choice there will be approximately another three-to-four fittings, depending on the complexity of the design.

This careful process ensures that you go on to possess a garment of fine quality, individual style – and one which is guaranteed to fit like a glove!
