Freya Bryce created the label "Pardon My French" several years ago by altering Vintage garments, creating one off pieces.
Freya then began self sewing garments, continuing to alter vintage bags, purses, jewellery and badges... stocking them in a small precious hidden boutique "Spokey Dokes" located here in Perth.
With enough experience and confidence behind her, Freya created an entire seasonal range, for the store "Family" which went on to completely sell out.
With so much interest in her garments there was only one thing to do, and that was up-scale.
Freya began designing like mad, travelling abroad to have her designs made into samples, then into collections.
"Pardon My French" is now available through:
Directly through Freya by emailing:firstname.lastname@example.org, with her label being stocked at Shop 28, North Perth as of September.
Pardon My French garments also feature on Fashion W.A's website, where they are available for purchase.
Pardon My French offers one of a kind; unique, daring and individual, pieces.
These clothes are designed for ladies that like to make a bold statement and stand-out from the crowd.
In my mind this is exactly what fashion should be, expressing ones creativity and individuality.
