  • ALWAYS WANTED TO DESIGN YOUR OWN CLOTHES?

    Always wanted to design your own clothes? With our popular ‘design your own’ service you can take control of your wardrobe.

    Choose your favourites from our garment styles and our wide range of fabrics for made-to-measure clothing you won’t see on anyone else.

    We’re dedicated to sustainable fashion working exclusively with vintage fabrics & end-of-roll remnants which would otherwise find their way to landfill. This also means that when you buy a new item of clothing you are adding another chapter to the story of each beautiful cloth. Every item is handmade by our all-female team in our Brighton studio for a living wage.

    Whilst we create plenty of wonderful outfits for formal events like weddings and parties, the majority of our customers design their wardrobe staples with us. That perfect skirt that goes with everything, that super comfy pair of dungarees that always gets you lots of compliments. We believe feel-good, sustainable fashion can be affordable and fun.

    Absolutely love having my Emperor’s dungarees in my wardrobe. They are such a go to whenever I need to dress up but still be comfy! They are so beautifully made and fit like a dream - definitely one of the best purchases I made last year!!

    Since discovering EOC I have consistently been impressed with their ethos, customer service and impeccable fabric choice. Although I adore their prints, my favourite EOC garment is a dark blue design-your-own circle skirt which has become an staple of my wardrobe. It’s just the right fit and the perfect length; it feels very ‘me’. I am full of admiration for Cecily’s approach to ethical and sustainable fashion. She has brought many important issues to my attention - reducing waste in the textile industry, the price of fashion, paying a living wage, size bias - which will make me a much more conscious shopper going forward. I have had to return a couple of items for alterations, and the EOC team have always been willing to help, returning them in quick time and for no extra charge. This service is absolutely invaluable as it means items that would otherwise be resigned to the back of the wardrobe get a new lease of life.

    I have never in over a decade of buying my own clothes found dungarees to fit my proportions until I had this gorgeous pair made to order by The Emperor's Old Clothes. They're so comfy AND they have an adjustable waistband to accommodate my adenomyosis/GI bloating fluctuations. They are doing some beautiful design work and they're making slow fashion accessible w/payment plans, a great range of sizes and bespoke tweaks to help sick babes like me be comfortable.

    The Emperor's Old Clothes have changed how I feel about myself. I went to them for a pair dungarees that would actually fit, after years of not being able to find any, and have since come back time and time again for more. They make clothing that is ethical, beautiful, and makes you feel amazing when you wear them. -ABBIE
