Inspiration

“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun”
Mary Lou Cook.

“Designing is our passion and our inspirations are widespread: the subtle palette of the Impressionists, vintage fashion plates, silver screen movie stars and theatrical design not to mention our mothers who introduced us to the sewing machine. We love understated glamour and like nothing more than a well cut dress with clean lines and romantic detailing. For us everything is in the detail.

While we love what we do, our business could never have worked so effectively if we weren’t such great friends. ‘LouLou’ (a combination of our middle names) was set up in 1991 and today, over twenty years later; we are still together despite the competing demands of a design partnership, friendship and motherhood. We put this down to loyalty, quiet determination, a willingness to think positively, a shared sense of humour and a great deal of laughter along the way.

We remain as passionately committed to quality design as we always have been which is unmistakable in our exciting first Louise Bentley collection”.
