One of Mosman’s best kept secrets is – The Individual Designer. Established in 2000 by sisters Shahin and Shahla, The Individual Designer is a quiet oasis of calm where you can organise the making of your next evening gown or a complete wedding party can be outfitted from top to toe. Owner Shahla emigrated from Iran in 1998 and spent the first years here studying English and Computers at TAFE. Having only schoolgirl English that was not quite in tune with the Aussie vernacular, she had a bit of catching up to do. So with a lot of listening, a lot of talking and a lot of hardwork, Shahla has now taken over the reins of the business and Shahin has pursued her other interests.

Coming from a family of four girls and with a grandmother and mother who both sewed, and with a degree in Fashion Design, Shahla has always sewn, drawn and created her own designs of understated elegance and simplicity. If you need help with your off the peg items that don’t quite fit or perhaps there is something hiding in the back of your wardrobe that’s ‘too good to throw out but needs a little updating’ then bring it along to The Individual Designer. There it will be expertly redesigned or altered to suit you. Remember Shahla’s talents are not restricted to womens fashions, she is very happy to help the men in your life with alterations to their suits and casual wear. Shahla is also happy to make up your own designs from a sketch or a page torn from a fashion magazine – just bring in your material and your ideas. As she said, “I am able to provide a range of services to my clients from the simplest hemming job to the most complex tailoring project. From bathing suits to uniforms, mother of the groom to first communion dresses, uniforms to jeans, I do it all – and I guarantee it will fit you”.

Open six days a week (Monday to Friday 9-5.30 and Saturday 10-2) The Individual Designer is located on the first floor of Bridgepoint Shopping Centre and can be easily accessed by lift from the basement car park (a boon to those with prams and wheelchairs).
