Uncommon Nonsense: handmade clothes for every body shape
Battling through an eating disorder, epilepsy and even strokes at the tender age of 24, Gemma McKeating, the designer behind Uncommon Nonsense, may have already experienced more pain than many of us will in a lifetime. But it hasn’t stopped her from creating her own range of beautiful dresses.
Creating handmade bespoke whimsical dresses, each garment is lovingly created with every fibre of Gemma’s willpower, with the aim of creating collections that can make any woman – regardless of size, disability or looks – feel and look beautiful.
The debut autumn/winter collection is inspired by her grandmother’s Russian wedding, which sees the use of faux fur collars adorned onto intricate made-to-order dresses in a series of eye-catching materials.
Focusing on animal prints, the dresses come in a variety of fabrics, including bunnies and toadstools, as well as the A/W favourite print of tartan. Evening looks are available in midnight velvet materials, while made-to-measure clothes can be created free of charge to those who may need extra alterations due to their size, body shape or disability.
