Dupsy Fashion is a London-based brand that has been working from the Bussey Building for almost 10 years. Situated in D block, you can often find her busy sewing away on everything from elaborate, extravagant bridal wear to cool Western pieces made from African (or other) fabrics. A fan of the phrase: “Simplicity is the ultimate in sophistication” – she creates ready-to-wear, high-style evening dresses that sit perfectly at the crossroads of African and Western design.

Dupsy Fashion studied dressmaking and pattern-cutting at fashion college and from experts who have tailoring in their blood. She works with a range of African prints, laces, damask and unusual fabrics to create beautiful designs with finishes that can look a bit haute couture but still fit with in with the overall look. Dupsy dresses are bespoke, well tailored pieces made to complement and suit the individual wearing them.

Dupsy Fashion is adept at taking a pattern and making it work just for you, and she’s adaptable enough to tailor and make clothes in a range of designs. Most clients come from referrals and those in-the-know but she welcomes new enquiries – just call and make an appointment to meet with her in her colourful studio.
