Judy R Clarks - Fashion A Frock Coat

Judy R Clark has launched a limited edition line of male and female Fashion Frock Coats for her new ready-to-wear fashion collection.

Taking this commercial step for the first time, Judy needs your support to get the ‘Fashion a Frock Coat’ line launched. In return you will be able to own a limited edition Harris Tweed and Lace piece from Judy’s new ready-to-wear collection. Have your say in the design process and visit the designer’s atelier now!

The line will consist of a limited edition line of male and female frock coats which feature Judy’s signature style –detailed cuffs, collars and bustle shapes providing a striking silhouette that makes the wearer feel completely unique. Each piece will be numbered so you can identify your exclusive coat as the 1tst, 5th or 20thth Judy R Clark frock coat worldwide. Each season a limited edition range of these classic and collectable pieces will be created and only 25 of each design will be made available for both men and women for anyone in the world to own.

We need you to make this designer’s dream a reality!

We would like to invite you, the fashion forward public, to become co-creators of the ‘Fashion a Frock Coat’ brand. It is through your engagement, especially through social media that ideas will grow and  the campaign will flourish to success. As ‘co-creators’ of the 'Fashion a Frock Coat' brand you will participate in the launch, be featured on the website appear in Judy’s video and social media channels.


Scottish Textiles

The project will be managed, designed and manufactured in Scotland using Scottish fabrics  - Harris Tweed and lace from MYB Textiles. Both these fabrics feature throughout Judy’s bespoke collections and her new ready-to-wear collection. These fabrics were  chosen because of their unique heritage, ethical workmanship and outstanding quality.

Harris Tweed

Harris Tweed is known as the champagne of fabrics and is renowned throughout the world as a top quality hand-woven fabric. The rare character and beauty of it is attributed to the fact that it is the only fabric in the world produced in commercial qualities by truly traditional methods. Harris Tweed is the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament and from start to finish the cloth is in the hands of skilled and experienced artisans who oversee every stage of production.


MYB Textiles

This Scottish company is now the only producer in the world manufacturing with original Nottingham Lace Looms, some of them over 90 years old. This coupled with their specialist knowledge of Scottish Madras makes MYB Textiles an industry world leader. The company are recognised worldwide for their commitment to ensuring the highest quality of production – driven by continual product and design innovation, new technology and a highly skilled workforce.

Demand Increasing

The increase in demand for Judy’s creations is expanding her business in to the commercial market space. Customers want to be able to buy products the same day and are not prepared to wait for a long period of time even for a piece of bespoke wear. Judy continues to receive numerous emails asking for her stockists and how people can purchase her garments online.  Judy wants to fulfil the demand for our product and let the customer access the brand with ease.

With production secured from a Scottish manufacturer Judy will be able to fulfil the growing demands and needs of her customer base. The launch pad for the limited edition collection will make the Judy Clark brand more accessible while also maintaining the luxury attribute of the brand in creating quality, timeless pieces which stand out against the  lacklustre throw away fashion.
