'We've seen every shape imaginable'

Cork-based fashion designers Charlotte Cargin and Jane Skovgaard of Charlotte & Jane create made-to-measure designs for clients including Imelda May.

They say: "There is no such thing as a standard size. Every woman has a completely different body shape, not to mention complexion and colouring.

"At this stage, we've seen every body shape imaginable. From first glance, we know immediately which styles and colours from our collection will suit different clients.

"For instance, with someone who is pear-shaped, we might try something with a wide collar to give balance and emphasise the waist.

"From there, we work out the best fit, length and colour for them.

"Then, a few weeks later, we do a final dress fitting to make sure it fits perfectly.

"And because it's bespoke, there's no fear of running into someone else with the same outfit!"
