Story
When Christian Dior revolutionised the way women dressed in the Fifties, his waspwaisted jackets and ample skirts were the epitome of Parisian chic. However, it is quite likely that they were made in a back-street in Barking, East London in the factory of Gloria Fashions.
Dior is just one of a string of high-profile designers who have had their garments manufactured by the company. Founded in 1956, Gloria Fashions was named after the sister of the two founding brothers, Robert and George King. Today Robert's son David is in charge.

Sworn to secrecy
In the sixties we were often responsible for dressing the Royal Family. Unfortunately we didn't get any recognition for it because all the work was incognito. The company had to sign a secrecy contract. I suppose it is a breach of national security to reveal the Queen Mother's statistics.

Production
For one London based designer store group we usually do a run of about 1,000 per style, and for a top end British label about 250. But we are not making their whole ranges.
We do specialise in high quality garments. For one leading British designer we'd do 30 in each style. One problem is that all the designers insist on us ensuring that no-one else see their samples.
