The right Dresscode
Dresscode is a style-focused uniform brand, while keeping in
mind comfort and durability. The company believes that if the staff look and
feel their best they will perform to the best of their ability, and at the same
time project a positive brand image. Gone are the days where a grey
polyester suit would pass as an acceptable uniform, and Dresscode is there to
help take brand uniforms to the next level.
Millennial founder, Diana Christie, has a background in luxury fashion, studying fashion design at the prestigious Parsons Paris and then going on to train under big brands such as Burberry and Roland Mouret. Her youthful and fresh take on uniforms is refreshing and will make your staff stand out from the crowd.
