Introducing Madam Q Couture

Want to know where you can get the hottest new accessories designed and made in Manchester?? Then read on!

Madam Q Couture is a new and exciting fashion label by Sophie Ho - a Manchester-based fashion designer who graduated in 2012. Since then her her designs have graced the catwalk at numerous fashion shows and events including London Graduate Fashion Week, Clothes Show Live, Vogue's Fashion's Night Out in Manchester, and Manchester Fashion Week. Sophie’s designs are inspired by architecture and photography and each and every piece is not just a wearable accessory, but a work of art.  

Madam Q Couture is Sophie Ho's first ready-to-wear range. She wanted to create a collection of clutch bags that embody and symbolise the unique culture of Manchester, whilst fitting in with daily life in the city. The label is on a mission to shake up the fashion industry in Manchester and leave its mark in the city which has an important place in the history and heritage of fashion and design. Madam Q Couture have chosen to have their clutches produced locally in Manchester with a manufacturer that has over 50 years of experience – I love the fact that they are proud of the city in which they live (and me too!)

The first collection includes two clutch styles:

Olivia Clutch

  • High quality PU
  • 26cm x 11cm
  • Removable strap

Scarlett Clutch

  • High quality PU
  • 29cm x 18cm
  • Internal zip pocket - fits phone and keys
  • Removable strap

Madam Q Couture is currently a featured project on Kickstarter  - the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects. They are currently over halfway to reaching the target to get the go-ahead to start producing the collection and there are 14 days left before the project ends. You can read all about it here.

I, for one, am very excited about this new emerging talent from Manchester. The clutch bags in this first collection are edgy but sophisticated and are very wearable. My favourite is the Scarlett Clutch in black – something I would definitely choose as it would compliment any outfit perfectly. Sophie Ho and Madam Q Couture are definitely ones to keep an eye on – with a debut collection as stunning as this one, I can’t wait to see what’s next.......
