Original, one-off Kreations that you will love forever

About Us

Practical Glamour is we are all about.

What is Practical Glamour ?

It's old school beauty, sparkles, fun & comfort.

When you are wearing something that makes you feel fabulous, it shines through & you glow.

All Koolies Kreations are one-off and no-one will have a piece that is identical to yours.

They are all designed & made by Koolie at her studio in Wimbledon.

We like to use soft tactile fabrics that look & feel great that are also resilient enough to stand the test of time.

Feathers, Sequins Lycra& Laceare Koolies special favourites. We also love to work with Alexander Henry cottons & to re-purpose vintage fabrics into new kreations.

All Sizes

We can make any item you see, in any size. We do not discriminate against the more or less voluptuous frame*

All our clothing can also be made in  longer or shorted lengths and made as comfortable or uncomfortable for you as you could wish.

*Standard made to measure do not include surcharges. Redesign elements (such as a change in hem or neckline may incur additional charges for fabric consumption and redesign. Made to measure bespoke orders CAN NOT be returned

About Koolie

Koolies Kreations exploded into life when Koolie realised she loved designing & making using fabrics. The first Kreations were faux fur & fleece hats that she made as Christmas presents in 2010.

Mr. Koolie was so impressed with these hats that he suggested Koolie start sharing them with the world & the rest, as they say, is history.

Since then we got our sew on & Koolie started trading in pop up shops at events around the country.

The process of ordering a made to measure garment:

Initial Consultation

The first step is for us to meet or talk over phone/email to discuss your ideas and get to know each other


We will go though a design process until we have a design you are happy with and find some fabric samples for you to see and feel


A toile (a mock up of your design) will be made to check the design is how you imagined it and for us to check the fit


Your design will then be made in the real fabrics


We will send your finished garment via secure mail or you can pick it up from our studio
