A BIT ABOUT ME

I am a Belgian clothes designer and maker who studied in Antwerpen at the Academy of Fine Arts and at CTL in Gent. I worked for a number of renowned Belgian fashion designers before setting out on my own, and have been living and working in the UK for over 20 years.


I make one-off handmade pieces in natural materials that are both timeless and contemporary.

The finishing touches are hand stitched with meticulous attention to detail - as intricate on the inside as they are minimalist on the outside. I often use sustainable and vintage materials. Most of the fabrics I work in have been pre-washed by me with ecological detergent to ensure the fabric will behave well with home laundering. 

I prefer to discuss before you purchase as each piece is unique and I need to make sure the sizing and details work for you.

I have a passion for materials and shapes, and always make pieces with forever in mind.

Bespoke commissions also undertaken.

PODCAST

In this week's episode of The Capital of Craft, Sarah James from Craft Festival & Find a Maker talks with clothes designer/ maker Sigrid Verschraeghen from her home in Silverton, Devon.


Born in Belgium, Sigrid won the coveted Best Stand award at this year’s Bovey Tracey Craft Festival. She trained as a fashion designer, working with various fashion houses, never feeling at home with the values of mainstream production. A move to the UK followed and the process of creating her slow-fashion label began.
