A Northern Irish fashion designer based in inspiring York, aiming to create beautiful clothing for real women. On a mission, to make women feel confident and fabulous. The Design Director of Antonia Houston Couture, Antonia works relentlessly to create incredible, show stopping pieces of fashion, including spectacular bridal wear. In fact, choose any day or time, and you’ll find her “playing” in her spacious design studio in York. Experimenting with different fabrics, colours and shapes, to create gorgeous pieces of art.
