About FredaSilk

Freda Silk is inspired by a love of creating beautiful things and of seeking out unusual fabric. With a constant eye open for potential materials and interesting ways to put them to use, ideas are always evolving.


A love of dance, particularly the elegance of ballet, led to the launch of Freda Silk. The initial collection of simple ballet wrap skirts has expanded to include rehearsal skirts, bespoke commissions, and some new shapes for other forms of dance, including jazz and pole.


Freda Silk skirts are made from chiffon, cationic chiffon, georgette and silk, and are designed on the principal that dance skirts need to flow, to drape and - like a dancer - to fly. The SAB skirt collection is constantly evolving, and I've introduced a range of dance dresses.

I'm absolutely delighted to make dance skirts for students, professionals, adult ballet dancers, dance schools and photographers throughout the world. Freda Silk remains a 'cottage industry' run from my home in Bath, Somerset.

Freda Silk was my granny. I always thought her name made her sound like a lingerie designer, hence my adopting it here. Thank you Granny Freda xx

And thank you for looking at the site
