Update Nov 2012: Kerrie has downsized the large Market Square shopfront, and is operating a smaller shopfront next door, while providing the same dance clothing production services. Get in touch with Kerrie directly for custom costumes.
Kerrie Fletcher has operated her dance costume design workshop from home for years, and was in desperate need for more space.
Her business is principally involved in the design and making of custom made dance costumes, catering to all dance groups (jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary, etc). She also sells dance accessories such as stockings and jewelry (tiaras, etc).
Juggling several dance school commissions at once means she needed her big laying out tables to overflow with fabric, with many orders on the go at once.
The large shop Kerrie has occupied in Market Square was way too large for many of other Renew Newcastle projects but perfect for Kerrie and her industrial machines, large tables and rolls of stock. It has also allowed her space for a display area for materials, costumes and accessories.
Update October 2010 – Kerrie is pleased to have Lesley’s Little Shop join her. Lesley’s clothes are a 50’s style with modern clothing designs for swing, rockabilly and everyday wear with flair. Lesley also suplies TUK shoes.
Lesley and Kerrie are collaborating on a vintage swimwear range, using original 50’s patterns made using contemporary fabrics. Launched at a fashion parade on Friday 1 October 2011, from 6-8pm. All welcome!
