BYSON LEATHER

 

 

 

 

Who does what at Byson ?

 

The boss at Byson is Gwen Warr (nee Parsons). Gwen received her first commission to make a garment professionally at the age of 14 and since then has worked in almost all parts of the clothing industry.
She has worked for Hideout Leather and Irvin Parachutes. She has made ball gowns and engine covers. She has dressed the girl behind the bar at our local pub and (as John Richmond's sample maker) Rolling Stones and Divas.

With this very wide breadth of experience behind her there is very little that she can't confidently execute.

Your telephone call will probably be answered by John, retired R&D scientist, classic clothing enthusiast and husband of the above. Having lived with the fashion industry for 20 years he will be able to answer most of your questions, leaving Gwen to get on with the clever stuff.

Unpicking and hand sewing is down to Roz, former publlican and champion Seak & Kidney pie maker.
