The professional woman wants to dress with individuality, femininity and most importantly practicality. Work wear needs to be smart but approachable, modern but not trendy, fit for business but personalised. As our work and social lives blur, women increasingly seek clothes that are contemporary and that work for both day and evening. The Claudette Joseph range has a formal edge with a runway attitude. What you get is femininity that is not overtly sexy and a fabulous fit with subtle detailing that is as appropriate for a business meeting as well as being glamourous after hours.
Claudette Joseph offers you two distinct services for your needs. The first is a seasonal ready to wear service where you can purchase any of our current collection directly and in your size. The second is our made to measure service where you can purchase anything from our ready to wear collection and have it tailored to fit your needs by maybe changing the fabric, colour, lining , detailing etc. The collection features new silhouettes with touches of elegance. The pencil skirt is given a new twist with featured seam panels; 40’s cut dresses are brought right up to date with details on the bodice; the fitted jacket is tailored to highlight the waist with added detail on the sleeve; shirts are simple and feminine and coats sumptuous and classic. The use of colour is a key element in the Claudette Joseph collections with rich warm tones of fuchsia pink, deep wine, crimson red and orange that are impregnated with punchy citrus shades of bright yellow and chartreuse green, all blended together with midnight blue, graphite grey, duck egg blue and royal blue.
The Claudette Joseph collection uses only the finest of fabrics. Pure new wool, cashmeres, silks and wool crepe all play a dominate role in this collection for their versatility, comfort and soft drape handle. The beautiful wool/cashmere blends are ideal for the coats and jackets, keeping out those cold winters chills, and the softest of silks are perfect for the feminine shirts and blouses.
Having worked for a number of years in the fashion industry as a designer for Arcadia and at Jasper Conran and Jean Muir, the Claudette Joseph aesthetic was firmly rooted.
