The Silk Service - Bespoke Garments, Made in Shanghai
Vive La Revolution!

Dear Customer,
It’s been a little while since we last spoke to you and when you read on you’ll see we’ve been busy. Alex’s long overdue visit to Shropshire this week gave us the perfect opportunity to consolidate everything we’ve been up to over the past few months.

Revolution seems to be the in thing recently and never one to be left behind The Silk Service is enacting a revolution of its own. We’re revolutionising our own designs ready for the summer season and helping you revolutionise those well loved classics you simply can’t bear to part with.

As with all change some things must get left behind. When you scroll down you’ll see we’re selling off last season’s sample garments at up to 60% off, if you’re quick you might be able to grab a bargain.

Being interviewed for BBC Radio Shropshire this week was the perfect way to kick off our new publicity drive, find out below how you can help spread the word about our revolution.

Spring Summer 2011 Collection

Taking the most popular garments from Summer 2010, we have produced a new collection with fresh colours and updated design details. Last summer the aqua and marine colours dominated, but Spring 2011 brings a completely new palate with strong accent colours. Taking inspiration from cherry blossom, forget-me-nots and soft lilies. Our chiffons, silks &amp summer linens reflect the season. Think summer, think Silk Service.

Hold Your Own Recession Remake Party

Revolution isn’t just about re-invention, but rejuvenating past successes. Hold a Silk Service Remake Party and you and your friends can share timeless classics from your wardrobes. People repeatedly ask us to copy treasured favorites. The Silk Service is uniquely placed to help you revive those well loved garments with new fabrics and new colours. Cotton becomes silk, small adjustments are made and in no time those worn and faded outfits are reborn.

All Good Things Must Come to An End


As we planned the new Spring / Summer 2011 Collection we couldn’t help noticing that The Silk Service rails were straining under the weight of 2010′s sample garments. So we’re having a 2010 Sample Sale, some early birds have already grabbed a bargain, but there are a few left on the rail that must go to make way for the new 2011 collection.

News of The Silk Service reached BBC Radio Shropshire and when they heard that Alex was in the UK for a visit they instantly asked if they could interview us about The Silk Service. They wanted to know how the company came about and how we were offering the bespoke tailoring with Sarah in Shropshire and Alex thousands of miles away in Shanghai. Our segment aired on Tuesday 15th February, but you can listen to it here.
