Concours d'Elegance Outfits

My passion is to create beautiful concours costumes

for people of all ages.

 A concours costume should be simple, tasteful, traditional

and have the "wow" factor!

Concours is meant to replicate wearing your Sunday best

and to look as elegant as possible.

My Qualification is in Period Costume Construction. 

I know what works and what really doesn't.

Adults/Teenagers (over 28"bust/chest)

  • All costumes are bespoke and made to measure in your choice of fabric/colour and style.
  • Each costume includes Jacket/ Skirt and matching elasticated hat band. ( optional extras available such as fully made hats/blouses/sashes/scrunchies)
  • Their is no set style for Concours de Elegance classes, but their are some basics that must be kept to. NO skin on show! NO extremely tacky or distasteful outfits! i will advise as much as i can on what will suit you and your horse/pony from styles to colours, its the little things that makes the big picture magical!
  • All costumes based on historical patterns and keep a traditional vibe (unless i am instructed otherwise)
  •  All of my costumes are made to order, waiting lists become very large on the lead up to the big Summer Championships, so get your orders in early to avoid disappointment.
  • Please do not hesitate to get in touch with your personal requirements, exchanging images and ideas is always fantastic!
  • 3 piece costumes are £325, plus postage by 24 hour courier at £15 (price is for a standard costume with no extras in the finish such as pleats/embroidery or any optional extras)


Lead Rein/First Ridden and Small Children (28" bust/chest and under)

  • All costumes are bespoke and made to measure in your choice .
  • of fabric/colour and style.
  • Each costume includes Jacket/ Skirt and matching elasticated hat band. ( optional handler outfits for Lead Rein, which can be the full outfit as above or individual accessories such as scrunchies/sashes/cummerbunds/skirt/blouse/hat)
  • Smaller jockeys need simple and elegant lines, again you need to think hard about what colour to use on what pony to create the perfect overall picture.
  • All costumes based on historical patterns and keep a traditional vibe (unless i am instructed otherwise)
  • Really trying to get the boys involved in the class, so if you have a young gentleman that would look very handsome in something traditional please get in touch.
