What do you offer?

Specialising in bespoke & made to measure wedding attire for all folks falling in love, while giving a shit about our planet. Hand crafted in a small atelier in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Velvet Johnstone believes in slow, sustainable, ethical design; iconic pieces you’ll want to wear again & again. 

Why do you want to work with the LGBTQ+ community?

Why would i not?  I truly believe love holds no boundaries. I’m here to celebrate you, your love, your lover/s & everything you are. it is my intention to make clothes that become an extension of you, co-created with you so that you feel 100% you.


Some key things that Velvet Johnstone does to ensue active allyship;

Use of correct pronouns & always sharing my own. 

Never assuming anything

Being open & welcoming 

Inclusive language 

Listening to lived experiences 

Gender fluid clothing - i’ve held off launching my latest collection as i really want to ensure that it is as inclusive as possible within both the design & presentation. 

De-gendering fashion

Raising money & donating to mermaids 

Speaking up in any conversations that may marginalise or misunderstand the LGBTQ+ community 

don't forget to let me know that you found me on Rebel Love Directory!
