There’s only one person I trust with the creation of my bespoke, luxcycled wardrobe and that is Shilpa of House of Bilimoria. This fashion label know fabric and can weave magic through every stitch, breathing life into garments with class, elegance and creativity. Their genius have enabled me to fall in love with clothes in a way that I never expected to happen.
Wish I could give more than 5 stars! Shilpa turned my dream into a reality for my upcycled wedding reception dress. The process from start to finish has been a dream. Wouldn't change a thing, Communication has been straightforward and quick which is exactly what you want when planning a wedding. I will definitely be visiting again for other outfits that can be transformed.
From beginning to end, it was a very productive and successful process. The quality and attention to detail, from initial measurements to the finished articles was evident at each stage of the process; as was Shilpa's experience and advice with regards to the best cut, style and use of the fabric, whether it was upcycled or new! She listened and was able to design the bespoke outfits, individually tailored for a specific occasion. The finishing was high end on all the items that were made for me. I highly recommend the whole experience and of course the end results! I will certainly be getting some more outfits made!
Fantastic Company, Excellent VIP tailor made Service. I just Love the warm feeling of happy when i’m attending an appointment to discuss the needs of my next up-cycled outfit. I have been fortunate to be gifted many beautiful sarees in the past and after a few wears, they have sat at the back of the cupboard forgotten about. HOB have opened up a new world of possibilities. From the HOB hospitality to the attention to the details, allowing me to get fully involved with my imagination to recreate a personal look that suits both my personality and style. From the beginning to the end, supporting me to express my inner women. My outfits have looked outstandingly stunning, receiving complements from many and I felt amazing wearing each one. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND these lovely ladies who go out of their way to make sure every outfit they have made me fits perfectly and looks fabulous.
There is nothing more satisfying than taking a much loved item of clothing and up-cycling it into a bespoke outfit that wows everyone that sets eyes on you - not only is it great for the environment but the skill, creativity and passion Shilpa and her team apply to their work makes the whole experience thoroughly rewarding. Shilpa created four amazing outfits for me and used the cut offs to make a further four outstanding outfits for my mini me - the compliments were endless! HoB truly is the 'luxcycle leader' as far as I'm concerned!
Shilpa and her team at House of Bilimoria made a beautiful bespoke shirt from upcycled fabric for my husband, PLUS a matching shirt for our 1-year-old son, and a couple of scrunchies for me, from the same fabric! It was a really special experience to go in and hand-pick the fabric, and have a unique shirt made that I know he will love for many years to come. Father and son wore their matching shirts together all summer, to much adoration from passing strangers. And I wear the scrunchies almost every day <3
I had my Bridal outfit made by House of Bilimoria and it was a smooth process, fit beautifully and the bespoke journey allowed me to have a garment I was comfortable in. Highly recommend for garments made from upcycled fabrics with luxury every step of the way!
