With our ten year anniversary now behind us and exciting couture-art projects afoot, the Atelier Tammam Boutique will close it’s doors until the spring on 30th November.
It’s time to fly south to warmer climes for a while, bespoke appointments will be limited until April and the cold winter months will be a time for the Tammam team to focus on creativity and new ventures, the Boutique will host 2 unique pop-ups while we are away. Hire services will still be available.
As a renowned and unique couturier we are often approached to dress celebrities.

We’re always happy to loan our garments for high profile events (or hire samples out for private events) and we love to see them on wonderful successful, talented women, but as a rule we don’t “gift” or give freebies to anyone – very succinctly put by our wonderful Kim…
“We don’t gift, our gowns are worth thousands of pounds and take considerable time and skill to make, we are a small indie label so we just can’t afford to. We chose to invest in our supply chains, producers and quality, instead of marketing through gifting to women who can easily afford to buy our gowns anyway.”
We have, from the start, put people over profits, the Tammam label has always been independent and focussed on ensuring everyone in the process of creating our gowns is treated fairly – therefore we expect to be paid fairly for what we do too. This also means our prices are fair and reflective of the work involved in creation – our marketing budgets aren’t high and our margins are low – so the price our customers pay for a bespoke gown, styling service or ready to wear garment is realistic – you really do get what you pay for, including knowing the people who made it are happy!
We do appreciate not all of our fans have haute couture budgets which is why we opened the Boutique to platform other amazing sustainable designers and offer eco ready to wear fashion to everyone. For bargain hunters and ethical fashion collectors – this November, to help us clear the showroom and make space for our winter guests, we are having a clear out sale event. All day on November 30th the Boutique will be open and everything must go. We’ll also have a first dibs event on the evening of the 29th – save the date and sign up to the Tammam Mailing list to be sure to be the first to hear when tickets are on sale.
We’re also hosting a life drawing, party outfit and gifts shopping event on Thursday 9th – very few tickets are left (access code TammamGuest), with delicious FAIR cocktails for all.
Yours in Fair Trade
