Welcome to Gleek and Unique. The home of Glee and Vintage inspired fashion.

I have been sewing for as long as I can remember. I trained as a Costumier at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and have worked in the Theatre, Film and TV industry for most of the last decade. I have always had a rather quirky sense of style even as a kid.

I adore the preppy high school look of the late 1950's, with all its novelty print fabrics and adorable sweaters. I spent most of my university years in a mixture of vintage pieces and my own creations teamed with retro costume jewellary and people loved it. Then shows like "Glee" came to our screens and the outfits seemed to sum up the style i'd loved all these years. Fun and cute and a little off the wall. I've made lots of vintage inspired outfits in fun fabrics for friends in the theatre and film industry over the last few years and they've gone down a storm. So I thought it was about time I shared my designs and a few of my favorite outfits from Glee with you all, especially those stunning vintage ones you fell in love with but just cant get another one of - well you can now!

Feel free to get in touch if you have a particular outfit you'd like or if you dont see what your looking for. I have lots of new styles on the way in made to measure and one off pieces. Or feel free to get in touch just to have a chat about great clothes and Glee!

Thanks for stopping by and do add me to your favorites and Etsy circle to keep up to date with the latest designs.
