Linda has an impressive client list. Her creations have been endorsed by Vogue Magazine, Prima and Country Living magazines. And in 2012 her work was featured in the BBC drama, The Paradise. Linda has also created a new gown for Earl Compton of Castle Ashby as well as being entrusted to renovate the original.

In celebration of the Royal children, Linda has created two Royal Christening Gowns. The first has similar lines to that of the British Royal gown whilst the Christiana Gown has been replicated from the christening gown used for the baptism of Prince Christian, later to become Christian X of Denmark in 1870. Both are truly regal gowns

Also, in celebration of the popular series Downton Abbey, Linda has created the Amelie Christening Gown. With her talent for creating perfect antique reproductions this Edwardian style robe is stunning.
