Meet the team
Tilly Batchelor (aka Boss lady, Tilly the terror or chicken)
Tilly is the passion and experience behind the studio. Every piece that leaves the studio first came to life in this ladies’ head.
Never one to shy from a new challenge, Tilly’s talent and tenacity has seen her grow her brand from handy seamstress to all-encompassing fashion house.
Visually she’s a pretty eclectic mix of blue hair, rockabilly style and a love of 60s and ska, and she spends her spare time hanging about in an aerial hoop. So, if a huge naturist trend takes hold, she has a back up career in the circus.
She’s passionate, loves cake, and can bring to life anything you can dream up, and more. Tilly focuses on making a connection with her clients, in order to zone in on exactly what they want and need from her, and when you visit the studio you should leave with cheeks aching from smiling, and your head exploding with inspiration.
EMILY COLLINS (AKA EM, SUGAR TITS OR NUGGET)
Right hand gal to the boss lady, and certified total beaut, Emily keeps everything organised, including Tilly!
Emily is beyond creative, with a tattooing career and creative background, she’s the resident artist extraordinaire. She loves getting stuck in to design detailing (she’s very protective of her glue gun!), so any orders which are painted, rhinestoned or sculpted, will have most definitely been through her hands. She is a whizz on an industrial sewing machine and is known to sing at random moments of the day, keeping things light and cheery when huge deadlines are looming.
Jenny Crump (aka Jen, Jack Knife Jen, Admin Queen)
Meet Jenny, our gorgeous admin fem fatale. New to the team but certainly not new to the task of keeping a business under control in the admin department. As we take Tilly Von Tiki to a whole new level, we felt it only right we give you a total firecracker to deal with and she certainly fits the bill.
Jenny loves festivals and bands and has a wicked eclectic wardrobe. She also makes the most amazing homemade Biscoff tarts every Monday, which officially makes Monday’s the best day of the week.
She's a wicked brainstorming partner and problem solver and her telephone powers of persuasion are something to admire.
