Ashford Castle was bought by Red Carnation Hotels in 2013. Investing in a major refurbishment, the hotel group brought the 800 year old castle back to its former glory. Recognised as one of the leading hotels in Europe, it is famous for the welcome of its staff and splendour of its interior and grounds.
Tailored Image was appointed to create a bespoke hotel uniform that would deliver the story of the brand that begins when guests enter the castle’s stone gates.
The owners of Ashford understand the important role that hotel uniforms play when creating a unique hospitality experience. They briefed Tailored Image to create a bespoke uniform that reflected the quality and sense of occasion associated with the Castle, whilst taking into consideration the aesthetics of its exquisite interiors, antique furniture, fine fabrics and unique features.
The design team at Tailored Image responded with a vast selection of distinct uniform garments, including doubled breasted waistcoats and jackets for both male and female staff and traditional style aprons for housekeeping staff, in keeping with the historic surroundings of the castle.
The creative design team at Tailored Image quickly met the challenge and delivered a bespoke uniform range for every level of staff. The garments were manufactured and supplied in record production time to meet the deadlines associated with the launch of the new upgraded elements within the Castle.
