The Uniform Studio were introduced by the Gorgeous group to Flemings Mayfair Hotel, a deluxe Georgian property with a clever fusion between the 18th century’s traditional charm and modern amenities. The Uniform Studio were provided with a delightful brief to combine a touch of traditional glamour to the uniforms with a more modern flair.
The Uniform Studio was commissioned by Ilse Crawford’s team at Studio Ilse to work closely with them in designing uniforms for this legendary venues ‘recent refurbishment (which) plays off the frisson of its proximity to the theatres…’ In doing so we subtly weaved in a sense of theatre such as elements of the tuxedo along side over-sized apricot pussy bows and bow ties to the functional practicalities of uniforms. The result appealing to both the traditions of the venue as well as its evocative Soho surroundings.
The nationwide contemporary Italian chain Zizzi approached The Uniform Studio to bring a fresh and modern look to the uniforms that would compliment the newly designed interiors and to subtly communicate their brand with interesting techniques. A link to the employees positions were also maintained through traditional references applied in unusual ways such as the recognisable chef stripe panels found on the headwear and aprons.

The Uniform Studio were provided with a delightful brief to combine a touch of traditional glamour to the uniforms with a more modern flair. This has been achieved through unusual bespoke styled accessories applied to more traditional garments as seen for example with the men’s unique waiting staff metallic collar clips replacing the traditional tie.
The Uniform Studio has been supplying many of the group’s venues for several years with the classically tailored waistcoat and pantone referenced ties depending on the colours and style of interior.
These conceptual uniform designs have been developed by our design team for developmental purposes. We encourage our team to experiment with different fabrics, styles and construction techniques..
Lois of The Uniform Studio has been designing stage costumes for Manumission the worlds largest, most notorious and glamorous weekly party for nearly a decade. Creating a refined balance of style and sassiness, the costumes draw on classic theatrical references, burlesque and the circus to create something quite unique and recognisable to the Manumission brand.
Hosted at the Natural History Museum (London) by Garrard Crown Jewellers and Barclays bank, Jade Jagger (creative director of Garrard), commissioned the costumes for this outrageously glamorous fashion show that would display their exceptional jewellery designs to the full as well as create a buzz about the night.
The 30 strong Synchronized swimming show of Nymphaeum echoed the filmic imagery of choreographer and director Busby Berkeley. This was a glamorous large-scale spectacle from which the costumes needed to explore the extravagant femininity of the showgirl and archetypal feminine images surrounding water and the sea.
The Sleep Event is Europe’s leading event for all those involved in the creation of hotels, comprising a design-led exhibition, high level conference and a prestigious international awards ceremony. The uniforms designed were kept very simple with contemporary eye-catching detail that would provide interest to the looks without detracting from the day’s events.
Etc Venues is the UK’s leading independent provider of training, meeting and conference space. We were asked to provide uniforms to reflect the venues which are ‘simple, contemporary and vibrant with surprising eating, networking, partying and relaxation environments.’ This was achieved through the use of simple silhouettes, modern detailing and injections of vibrant colours to suit the surroundings.
