Wendy Benstead: Costume and Clothing is an all-encompassing business, serving the entertainments, commercial and bridal sectors. We design and create clothing at our working studio based in South East London.
Having established the company in 2008, Wendy has built an impressive reputation and portfolio based on an internationally recognizable client base including pop stars, high-end brands, commercials and Oscar-nominated Costume Designers. Now with an ever expanding team, the business is able to take on larger scale work, with consistent attention to client brief, and is able to work with PR and commercial teams to truly understand marketing and branding needs, and create costumes to reflect those requirements.
With a fully qualified and diversely skilled team, we are able to construct anything from one-off bespoke clothing, to producing duplicates, and small commercial runs. All pattern drafting and construction is over seen by our dedicated Creative Team, to ensure delivering to brief every single time. We are proud to be a British Company, and all items are made in our London Atelier, not overseas, and to a high standard fit for the purpose required.
Our bridal service sits alongside our passion for costume, and allows us to work with brides to create exclusive, one-of-a-kind bespoke gowns that truly reflect the character of each individual bride.
