Unique uniforms, thanks to more than 2,000 investors
Last month we were in Chiswick visiting bespoke uniform designers, Fashionizer. The award-winning company was launched 20 years ago by costume designer Debbie Leon when she identified a gap in the market for luxury uniform design. “There’s a technical side to uniforms – their functionality, whether you’re bending or stretching or carrying, their durability and their wearability,” Debbie says.
Operating at the top end of the market Fashionizer boasts an impressive client list including St Pancras Renaissance, The Connaught Hotel in London and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Dubai. Debbie and her team create uniforms that reflect a brand’s identity, combining the creative design process with strong technical expertise. They export their tailor-made uniforms all over the world, and even have an order from Bora Bora at the moment!
Fashionizer Limited was the first company to receive part of their loan from the Government’s Business Bank* and since 2013, have borrowed over £195,000, across three business loans (Loan ID 2392, 3464, 9564).
In this short video you’ll hear from Debbie, meet the Fashionizer team and learn the three key elements to uniform design.
