TINKERBELLE was born in January 1989 when Pauline and husband Robert (
then with two young children ) decided to open a shop in Lowestoft which
specialised in beautiful bridal wear. Pauline had trained in Fashion and
Design in London and for a while worked for a famous designer there, before
designing and making clothes herself. Starting with childrens clothes, the
demand for her designs increased and bespoke bridal and bridesmaid gowns
TINKERBELLE is very much a family affair and daughters Nicola and Rose
also trained and qualified in Fashion and Costume design. Between them they
have worked on well known shows in London's West End as well as on Films,
TV and photo shoots.
At one time TINKERBELLE decided to spread it's wings and opened a second
shop in Ipswich and then a third one in Norwich. This was an extremely busy
time with the family running backwards and forwards between all three shops.
These days we are happy to concentrate all our efforts on the one shop in
Lowestoft and we were so excited to move to more spacious premises, opening
our new stylish and chic bridal boutique in April 2015.
TINKERBELLE has built up a fantastic reputation over the years and we
have always believed in providing a high standard of customer service. It
is not just a business to us, but a way of life - we have a real passion
for what we do. Being dress designers and makers we can offer our expertise
to all our customers, drawing upon our knowledge and years of experience
to provide friendly yet professional help and advice.
TINKERBELLE offers a professional alteration service to customers and
all alterations are carried out by us in our own workrooms - we don't use
outside seamstresses. We can also change and customise the bridal gowns
in our collection as well as designing and making a bespoke gown.
The TINKERBELLE team believe that choosing and creating the look you desire
should be an enjoyable experience. We do all we can to help put 'a touch
of magic' into your special day.
