fa br ics >> Our fabrics are from all over the world. It’s exciting to open a sample bag and see what delights are inside. There is always fabric sampling we can’t include in the development of a range, but they are often beautiful prints/textures, etc. We can’t bear to waste them...so we have opened a small haberdashery section in our Malvern store to make them available to our customers. Along with lengths of fabric, we also have a beautiful selection of buttons and trims, often not available in retail. So if you love to create your own clothes and are constantly looking for quality fabric, drop in and see what we have.

se cret women’s bu si ne ss work sh ops >>

Nearly four years old, our workshops began from a seed sown by Trinny and Susannah, the makeover duo in Britain. They were helping women of all ages to feel more positive about their body shapes, giving them fashion tips on how to dress. It was a fabulous approach but fashion was still skewed to a younger age group, making it virtually impossible to find appropriate clothes for people outside this age. At the same time, The Ark was designing for real women using our own patternmakers, constantly tweaking gradings to suit the shapes and sizes we needed. We gradually developed a basics range that provided a wonderful undercover for our fashion pieces. It meant quick, easy, comfortable dressing. A no-brainer starting point for busy people and very flattering. We were all wearing it and loving it. So one evening in store to a group of unsuspecting women, Chris and I bared our less than perfect bodies on the catwalk and revealed how to make the best of and hide the worst of our shapes from our own personal experience. We heard arghh, oohs and finally aahs! People laughed and felt liberated! It was a bit of ‘self esteem’ boosting fun. Our Workshop Your Shape nights ran weekly instore for a month, it was extended to three and finally for most of the next year. They haven’t stopped. Now we cover body shapes, packing and travelling, makeovers for wardrobes, etc...and are still regularly booked out. These nights are relaxed, and a great way to spend an evening with a friend or two. If you haven’t already been, come along and if you would prefer some individual attention with a like minded person, book yourself into a Love Your Shape with one of our stylists. They ’re like a great massage. You feel wonderful afterwards! Please enjoy, Jen

Workshops can be booked online or instore
