Founder of Boutique Alterations, Tusneem Jabbar, started working for herself in 1998 with the help of the Princes Trust. She quickly gathered momentum designing gowns for many high-profile clients within the Cheshire set, as well as household names from the cast of Coronation Street such as the soap favourite Shobna Gulati. This led her to winning three best dress accolades at the National Television Awards.
Following on from this success, in 2003 Tusneem started to supply bridal shops with a small collection and as a result she was selected to do a photoshoot with the likes of Donna Karan, Jenny Packham and Vera Wang Bridal. Since then Tusneem is in demand designing evening dresses for an esteemed clientele in the Cheshire area and beyond and is asked to design dresses for charity auctions where bidders are famous footballers’ wives, Cheshire housewives and soap star celebs. In 2013 Tusneem opened Boutique Alterations offering an alterations service and bespoke dressmaking for brides and evening attire. Since its debut, Boutique Alterations has had brides coming from as far as Switzerland and Sweden for alterations, and London and Scotland to have their dresses made. “I love to use very full and detailed embellishment, but generally keep it concentrated to a focal point on the dress. I recognise this helps the design balance, while keeping the simplicity. Designing with encrusted focal points strongly reflects my ethnic background , and the simple way i have introduced this to my gowns creates my signature look.”
We pride ourselves on our quality of work and customer service, all our staff are fully trained by Tusneem to understand each and every clients requirements.
Fabrics are sourced from various countries in Europe. Tusneem takes time and great pride in selecting the very best fabrics that are light to wear and suit the movement of the fall. For the softer fabrics we use silk georgette and silk chiffon, with mikado and taffeta for the stronger silhouettes. Soft and decorative French and Italian laces are used for the more fluid shapes.
Situated in Cheshire, our quiet boutique offer stylish surrounds and the perfect ambiance appropriate for a special and stress-free experience.
All our customers are very important to us and we feel your visit should be mixed with comfort and confidence even if visiting us for a short time. Founder Tusneem wanted to offer her customers more of an experience and so designed the Bramhall location into a luxury Boutique environment to offer all her customers not only quality of work but a relaxing ambience.
