Chronic Couture

Chronic Couture is a service which provides bespoke garments for people undergoing treatment by the health care service.

This creates an occasion for people to collaborate with a designer, tailoring a garment for their health care experience.  The occasion, the wearer, the style and the material are factors that are considered.  

Garments created satisfy regulations of the NHS, yet more importantly provide empowerment for the person undergoing treatment.
