About Our Founder
Caroline has spent all her career designing and creating technical clothing with an emphasis on cut, fit and performance. She trained at De Montfort University completing her Fashion Degree in the specialist subject ‘Contour Fashion’ (lingerie, swim and sports-wear design). Demontfort‘s course is world reknowned and has trained designers who now work across the globe for Brand and Retailers such as Victoria’s Secret, Agent Provocateur, Marks and Spencers, Wacoal and Calvin Klein.During her career Caroline herself has designed for brands as diverse as Marks and Spencers, Playtex and Debenhams (where she was Head of Design and Buying) to Agent Provocateur, Pistol Panties and Heidi Klein. The latter for whom she designed their launch range and for whom she had her illustrations featured in UK’s Vogue magazine.
Caroline’s design ethos stems, she says from her interest in form and function. She enjoys the technical challenges of how to make a garment fit along side those of making it look good. In many ways her design approach is taken more from the design disciplines of architecture and product design rather than the conventional ‘decorative first’ approach. Throughout her career Caroline has always sought to learn new techniques and technologies in fabric and pattern cutting to continually strive to create the perfect balance of fit and aesthetic.
Vevie came out of this background in technical design. Caroline’s aim with Vevie is to let the technology sit almost invisibly in the background making Vevie‘s clothes perform and fit to exceptional standards whilst allowing Vevie’s chic style to take centre stage.
Vevie is British owned and run and is one of the UK’s many small design led businesses. Feature in magazines and newspapers such as You, Spa Secrets,Cambridge Style, The Guardian, The Observer and The Daily Mail, Vevie offers a truly stylish choice for womens holiday, spa and work-out wardrobes.
Our Head office is in London where Caroline works on all of our designs, and where we generally sort out the admin of running a business.
We are committed to working with UK and European partners wherever possible and all of our garments are manufactured in Europe, ensuring not only the highest in stitch quality but also good working conditions and pay for all the factory workers who stitch our garments. Vevie makes sure that all the fabrics and trims it selects for its clothing ranges perform to the rigourous British fabric testing standards. The product team ensures that each style is fitted on real ‘live’ models across different sizes and shapes before any style is signed off and put into production. We really do want you to love your Vevie clothes and will stop at nothing (well nearly) to make sure that you do.

“It makes me so happy to witness how Vevie’s great cut and fit help our customers feel confident and at their best. Plus it’s assuring that this self-belief continues when customers leave the changing room, as our returns rate is significantly low.”
