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.
