Biography

1976-2001 Jon originally studied Fashion Design at Kingston University and after graduation joined the Design studio at Royal Couturier Hardy Amies in 1979. Progressing from Studio Assistant to Women's Wear Designer, Couture Director and finally Design Director, a role he held for five years.

2002-22, Jon established JON MOORE LTD to enable him to design and most importantly create by hand, one off Couture garments for private clients. After designing and sketching an outfit, Jon worked directly on the stand, modeled to the exact measurements of the client. The cloth was draped directly on the stand to realise a unique soft sculpture in fabric. Then using traditional Couture hand sewing techniques a beautifully made, fitted and exquisitely hand finished garment was produced.

2005-21 Jon also ran very successful residential sewing courses , teaching Couture sewing techniques. These courses were attended by both UK students and International students from as far afield as America, Australia, Canada, Denmark and New Zealand.

During Jon's long career in Couture, he has worked with some of the most extraordinarily gifted and talented Couture fitters, seamstresses, tailors and some very discerning clients, H.M.Queen Elizabeth amongst them.
