ABOUT THE BRAND
Welcome to Beasha, an independent made-to-order label where I, Bea, create little pieces of art in the form of clothes. Inspired by art, literature and my passion for creation those looks that make you feel heavenly. Sewing was the first thing I remember falling in love with - how you could make anything you like and lose yourself in the craftsmanship. Beasha allows me to make these pieces for you all as well.
Fashion should have depth and make you feel something. In the case of Beasha, that feeling I hope to bring you is confidence and beauty, as well as being more aware of how it is us, the little people, the consumers, who can make a huge difference for the sustainable future..
Every piece is lovingly designed, pattern cut, sewn, packaged and sent by me from my Studio in Bristol. Each piece takes around half a day to make. They are made to measure and able to be customised so you know you'll get your perfect fit and be wearing something so personal to you. It is important to me to practice slow fashion and never compromise on design or quality.
I try to source all my fabrics from dead-stock, organic or vintage fabrics and so each design can only be made in very small quantities. When I find a fabric that is none of those three, I make sure it is always sourced from the UK but it means I can re-order in larger quantities if you all love it as much as I do.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Bea Stoneham is a Designer, Seamstress and Commission Artist based in the UK. Her editorials and costume design often respond to the fragile beauty of the Earth and so all collections and garments have sustainability as the core that is built upon in the designing and making process.
As a lover of craftsmanship, the construction is just as important to her as the final product and creative direction. She is currently a part-time Seamstress and Social Media Manager for respected and loved Lycra brand Burnt Soul Clothing and will always enjoy the tactile element to her work.
After graduating from the University of West of England (Fashion BA), Bea worked on the costume for the Shobana Dance Company's performance at Southbank, London under Menswear brand COTTWEILER. She then went on to Burnt Soul Clothing whilst undertaking freelance work and commissions with projects such Pepsi's Christmas Advert.
