An industry leader in providing beautiful yet hard wearing garments in the hospitality sector, The Uniform Studio prides itself on creating the right image for your business. Carefully combining form with function, co founder and Creative Director, Lois Hill, will ensure neither is compromised and that the perfect garment is produced to the highest quality.
“It’s crucial to work closely with our clients to ensure we fully understand the brief.” says Lois. “Brand integrity is at stake so it’s our job to design and deliver a product that ticks all the boxes and stands the test of time.”
With clients ranging from The Soho House Group to Anya Hindmarch, The Uniform Studio has gone from strength to strength since its inception ten years ago and continues to expand its repertoire in the bespoke sector.
“Lois and her team are 100% committed to producing the right image for every brand that we work with, be it a global hotel group or a smaller independent.” Director, Chris Meeten, explains.
“Whether it’s cutting edge fashion or a more understated, traditional requirement, we listen carefully to our clients and make sure we deliver fully against that brief.”
Offering a personal, one to one service is clearly key to the success of this business. From the initial sketches to final delivery, The Uniform Studio team will make sure they are with you every step of the way and are always on hand if needs be.
“Some of our clients come to us with a clear vision of what they want, others need a little more guidance,” Lois comments, “so it’s our job to suggest styles, fabrics and overall looks to gently steer them in the right direction.”
Newly opened Mayfair based Japanese restaurant, TAKA London by Andrey Datsenko, is one of The Uniform Studio’s most recent projects. With the re-imagination of two of their classic designs, namely the Dark Indigo Denim Grandad Collared Shirt and the Mini Waisted Khaki apron, the look is simple but stylish. Always functional.
Another recent brief, this time from W Hotels (a long standing client since 2010) tasked The Uniform Studio to re-design the overall front of house image of their seminal bars and restaurants. Taking inspiration from the classic but edgy feel of the Tux, Lois created a subtle story around this iconic piece which runs through the uniforms of the waiting and serving staff. Incorporating comfort as well as practicality was paramount. The over-riding style is effortless.
It’s clear that The Uniform Studio knows its stuff. It can be challenging to translate the heart of a business into a tangible look but this is where The Uniform Studio comes into its own.
“Celebrating the beauty of workwear” Chris Meeten concludes “is what we do best.”
