The Story Behind Daines Atelier…

We started off Alterations and Custom Garment’s specialists back in 2018. As a result of obtaining the necessary skills from studying a degree in Fashion Atelier from The University for Creative Arts.

In December 2018 and Daines Atelier obtained a studio at The Silk Mill Studios in Frome Somerset. Alongside Alterations came experimentation into a collection of reclaimed deadstock and vintage materials which had been collected over the years.

In conclusion, discovering this found love for producing garments which were not impactful on our planet. Hence, in April 2019 Daines Atelier was offered a place The Frome Independent to showcase such works.

The announcement of a global pandemic and lockdown in March 2020. As a result, this allowed some time to reflect over the journey which Daines Atelier had taken and some time to make some decisions on what direction everything should go in.

In April 2020 it was concluded that Daines Atelier would no longer offer alterations, But would work to give knowledge on slow and sustainable fashion and to create garments which committed to being part of the circular fashion revolution.

Daines Atelier Working at University

I’m Evie Daines, Founder of Daines atelier.

Back in 2018, I graduated from the University for the Creative Arts with a First Class Bachelor Honours in Fashion Atelier.

My final graduate collection focused on tailoring and menswear, sourcing my materials in London and New York made me aware of the impact on the environment and how necessary is it truly to be constantly using brand new materials? My final collection got shown at Graduate Fashion Week and was also shortlisted.

I have always been engaged with being kind to the planet and wanting to seek new ways in which the fashion industry can become more circular. As a result on a daily basis we are exploring new ways in which Daines Atelier can improve as a company.

Daines Atelier is Based at The Silk Mill Studios in Frome.

‘Silk Mill Studios operates from one of the best preserved former textile mills in the south-west of England. We exist primarily to provide studio space for working artists, but also to offer a range of additional arts services, including hire of our exceptional atmospheric gallery space. We have full disabled access to the gallery and its services.’ From the Silk Mill Studios Website.
