As a busy artisan food company, the Yellow Door takes great pride in being a multi award winning family run bakery, deli and catering business, focusing on great local produce. When it came to the procurement of uniforms for its prestigious Hillsborough Castle venue, Tailored Image was the obvious choice of uniform partner. Working in collaboration with Yellow Door, Tailored Image provided hospitality uniform solutions as individual and tailored as their freshly baked breads and pastries.
These uniforms play a unique role in showcasing the Yellow Door’s iconic logo and historic colours, coupled with the practical demands of a busy catering and restaurant company. Tailored Image was faced with the challenge of designing a uniform that was parallel with the Yellow Door brand and appropriate for such a royal and historic venue, yet highly functional for the restaurant and catering environments in which the wearers would be operating.
Tailored Image’s in-house design team rose to the challenge of bringing two uniform ideas to life for this new departure for Yellow Door, all while maintaining their prestigious look. One concept was developed for the more formal surroundings of the stable Yard Tea Room, with a blue tailored waistcoat being the focus of the uniform, illustrating the perfect atmosphere for indulging in the culinary delights in which Yellow Door specialises. A more relaxed brown apron option brought to life a more casual dining experience for the café. Tailored Image once again demonstrated its flexibility in approach and the delivery of a two-tiered approach highlighted the benefits of a bespoke service in the delivery of uniforms.
Tailored Image was delighted to design and manufacture a bespoke uniform that showcases Yellow Door’s brand identity so strongly in the hospitality sector. Owner and chef Simon Dougan, who was the catalyst for design, was delighted with the response to the brief and Tailored Image’s continuous professional delivery time and time again.
