Sharon Bowen Couture

It's not at all surprising that Sharon Bowen of Sharon Bowen Couture has become firmly established as an internationally acclaimed bridal and eveningwear designer, counting many celebrities among her extensive clientele. Born in Congleton, Cheshire, the heart of the silk and garment manufacturing industry, it was a very natural career path for her to take, because her mother created fabulous eveningwear for royalty as a sample seamstress. Having watched her mother make these fabulous gowns, she copied the dresses in miniature sizes for her Sindy dolls from a young age. The skills and passion for design never left her and she later decided to train in fashion design and illustration at Bristol Polytechnic. After gaining a BA Honours degree, she then went to Paris to begin her career as a couturier, with Francois Lesage as her mentor. Sharon continued her career with Hubert Aimetti and went on to design for some of the world's most prestigious fashion houses, including Chloe and Dior, before launching her own range. Sharon established her own label at the age of 21 in Paris, as there was a gap in the market for sophisticated and elegant garments. Her design range later extended to couture wedding gowns, following her return to the UK and the tremendous interest in her own gown when she married in 1993. Now permanently based in Congleton, Cheshire, Sharon has since joined forces with Rosie Panesar. Sharon's collections can be view and purchased at Kleinfield 111 West 20th Street, New York, NY 10011
