ABOUT

IT'S TRUE... WE ARE WHAT WE WEAR! 

Our identity is stitched into the fibres of or clothes. We don't make clothes, clothes makes us. What we wear gives us confidence, a sense of belonging, dignity, authority or even an identity. It's an essential form of self expression. A medium for the artist, a status symbol for the politician and a powerful armour for the soldier. 

WHO IS HOUSE OF PERRIS?

We are a high-end fashion brand specialising in womenswear, menswear and children's clothing.

That's the short answer...

Now here's the long answer: Minimalism, clean lines, defined silhouettes, unique and edgy cuts are a stable of the label. Our well-constructed pieces show an obsession with detail and good craftsmanship. Our fabric choices are particularly high-end as we source from only the most luxurious of selections. Stepping into a PERRIS piece is not an act of 'getting dressed', it's a feeling, a mood, an experience...a discovery. 

We design and manufacture high quality, high-end clothing at fair prices, filling in the gap between extravagantly expensive couture and cheap quality-compromised fast fashion brands, while providing jobs for marginalised skilled and semi-skilled local workers.

THE STORY 

"The idea to create House of Perris came while walking frantically down Champs Elysee, in Paris, urgently searching of a minimal classy but demure little black dress that I could quickly scoop up for an impromptu dinner that I had to attend that evening".

"There was no time to navigate my way through the busy Metro back home to get ready, so the only choice was to desperately find this dress, QUICKLY." With only T-minus a hour to go, and frustrated from looking through all, "my favourite 'you never let me down', boutiques, I felt settled on a loose interpretation of what I was looking for". 

"It was a simple thing that I needed. A simple, clean cut, fuss-free dress that would suddenly make me look amazing peoples!" I was not having it. The next day, I set about learning to sew. I was going to make that dress that was in my head, if it killed me.

So, I did."

"And... some other people liked it, so I made more and haven't stopped since." Now we are here.
