Scorpio Rising are UK based specialists in handmade velvet garments, taking inspiration from 60s & 70s musicians, films and fashion icons, along with earlier historical styles. The concept behind our brand is firstly, to make quality clothing that fits and secondly, to give customers the option to customise in the way they wish. Let me explain further...
Being a handmade business, we make all our items to order, allowing us to adapt to each customer’s specific needs. There’s no ‘one size fits’ all and that‘s why we adjust bodice/inseam and skirt lengths based on your height, to ensure you receive a perfectly fitting end product.
Hand making to order also allows us to offer all our designs in any colour of your choice, with the option to mix and match leg styles, so you can build it to be the way you truly want. In some instances we can offer further customisation so please drop us message via the contact page if you wish to enquire further.
We consider ourselves to be a slow fashion brand meaning our products are ethically made with an emphasis on keeping our environmental impact to a minimum. All of our packaging is made from 100% recycled material and is biodegradable.
We are a small team of two comprising of founder, Imogen, who having spent 10 years previously running a successful handmade and vintage clothing business, decided it was time for a new concept to meet customer’s needs and growing demand. She was later joined by French designer and pattern cutter, Olivier who has been key in helping to bring these beautiful designs to life, from fashion sketch to photoshoot.
We believe in offering sustainable and customisable garments that fit like a glove, which will last a lifetime and be treasured for many years.
