A little bit about Me!

 

 

Hello!

My name is Helen Fox.......here's my story!

 

I was born in London....many years ago!...but moved up to Yorkshire when I was around four years old. I have always had a passion for designing and making clothes, it's what I've always wanted to do. My Mum still tells me today how I used to cut up the living room curtains to make dolls clothes when I was a little girl and she only knew what I'd done when she went to close them at night!! 

When I finished my school years, I went on to study at Jacob Kramer College in Leeds for four years and attained a Higher National Diploma in Dress Design and Pattern Construction.

In between getting married, having 2 children...now grown up but who's clothes I used to make... I still have my passion for sewing. Hence yoyo came about!

I found that there was a gap in the market for good quality and individuality in the garment styles but also mixed with fun and funky fabrics. I get a lot of my inspiration from trends gone by, I love the retro feel to my clothes! Many of my customers have said the same and that they can remember their Daughters wearing similar styles, I agree, because I've been told the same by my Mum!

yoyo is me and just me! I have the inspiration for all the designs, I then draft all the patterns, cut out, and then the best bit, the sewing up of my new creation!! I try to ensure that the fabrics that I use are kept as selective as possible, some sourced and imported from abroad, so as to keep yoyo designs exclusive to the yoyo brand. I also love choosing bright and bold colours that make yoyo garments stand out from the crowd. I don't carry much fabric stock, so once it's gone.....it's gone!

My clothes are generously cut to give comfort and ease of movement, especially around the armholes, nothing worse than a tight fit here! Also, there is room for a t-shirt or jumper underneath for those not so warm days!
