Contributor profile

Elena Mingas is the Owner and Designer at Tangle Dress Design in Manchester, UK, and is hoping to bring bespoke evening wear into the 21st Century. Elena is the first person in the UK to be accepted on the Start Up Loans initiative backed by Lord Young & James Caan.

Opened in 2012, Tangle Dress Design offers an informal consultation to each customer, followed by a free bespoke design, with no obligation to have the dress made up once the artwork has been received. Customers also have the option to select ideas from a catalogue of ready-made designs.

Elena lives for fashion; it is her hobby as well as her profession and true love. Before opening Tangle Dress Design she worked for a luxury Boutique in Dubai where she headed styling, visual merchandising, buying, graphics & illustration and had her own designs sold there.

She has a first class honours degree in Digital Fashion Design from the University of Central Lancashire and has been obsessing over all things creative for as long as she can remember.
