Since the debut of her first private collection in 2014, Womenswear designer Claire Diederichs has built her business catering to a niche market of discerned modern women. Claire offers capsule collections of exquisite contemporary tailoring that evoke the effortless elegance and sophistication of her clients.
Our design philosophy has naturally evolved by way of Claire’s range of experiences working within the Fashion Industry. Having worked for Luxury Brands including Gucci and Valentino; for Emerging Designers such as Roksanda Ilincic; as well as Fashion Publications (Vogue UK) and Mid-Market Contemporary Brands in both London and New York, Claire has gained a wide-ranging knowledge of both the Fashion Industry and developed an intuitive understanding of the modern luxury consumer.
As a designer, Claire understands the importance of knowing her customer and meeting her clients’ needs. She recognises that ultimately, the strength of her designs reflects the strength of the working-relationship she has with her client, and therefore ensures that the entire experience and level of service offered to her clients reflects the quality and attention to detail of the product itself. It is for this reason that until now Claire has chosen to remain a discrete brand, only showing in private settings by appointment and exclusive invitation. This more personalised and intimate approach has enabled Claire to cultivate a loyal following of private clients with whom she works on both a made-to-order, as well as a bespoke basis.
With a growing demand for her designs, Claire has launched the Atelier, and we are preparing to openly showcase a collection that will for the first time be offered to a larger audience along with select members of the Fashion Press. The collection will still be sold on the basis of made-to-order that enables us to maintain the quality, attention to detail and immaculate fit synonymous with the brand.
