All you need to know

Sew What is a one-woman business, founded by Anita Smith in 2016.

I am a designer, stylist and educator based in Manchester.

I design and make clothing inspired by vintage styles, using modern fabrics and colours. I believe in making clothes that can be worn from one season to the next, providing you with key items that allow you to express your individual style and personality. I also provide styling services and workshops to help you develop and define your personal style even further. 

You can expect a supportive, friendly and jargon-free experience - I believe that getting dressed should be fun, but I also know that sometimes the current trends don’t fit with how you feel. I want you to feel empowered by helping you to put the excitement back into your wardrobe!

I am here to help you feel confident in defining your style - whether that is providing you with clothing to fit your lifestyle, guiding you through sustainable fashion choices, or showing you ways to style and accessorise your existing wardrobe. 

I can’t wait to get to know you and your style, so get in touch!
