Paris Fury's seamstress who transformed stunning dresses days before Tyson's Vegas fight

Asia's Tech News Daily

The seamstress behind last minute adjustments to Paris Fury’s fight night dress worn to cheer on husband Tyson in Las Vegas has spoken of her “pride” in being part of the look.

Paris Fury’s sparkling cobalt blue dress was described as ‘absolutely stunning’ as she watched Tyson beat Deontay Wilder last weekend to defend his WBC heavyweight title.

The widely-photographed garment was bought at Cinders Party Dress UK in Hale Village, Liverpool and adjusted to fit by Karen Storm, 59, from Lancaster.

The mum-of-six left took to Instagram to share the ‘nerve-wracking time’ leading up to Tyson’s fight.

Paris wrote: “I know coming out to Vegas sounds incredibly glamorous but being a ‘boxing wife’ on match day is a weird mix of being surrounded by a huge buzz and feeling totally sick – it’s so hard to watch your husband go through it – but I know being in the ring is what Tyson loves.

“Choosing an outfit for ringside and getting ready is always a big part of it for me, usually mix of high street and something a bit special is my usual look – I’ve brought quite a few options over with me so I can decide on the day.

“The main thing is I’m there to support Tyson and one of the things I do is eat the same breakfast as him on the morning of the fight so he doesn’t have to see me eating a bacon sandwich while he has his porridge!”

Making her choice of dress a little easier was Lancaster Seamstress, Karen, who currently works from Lancaster City Laundry.

The figure-hugging mermaid gown in cobalt blue with sparkly details from top to toe was given to Karen on Sunday (October 3), alongside another one-shoulder fitted gown that was emerald green with silver beading on the right breast.

She had until Tuesday (October 5) to make sure Paris ‘could walk without having to look down’ in Vegas, where the fight took place on October 9.

Karen told LancsLive: “I don’t make the dresses, I just make them fit. I do it for brides, and I’m a seamstress, that’s what I do.

“For Paris, I made it so she could walk without having to look down, and I put fabric behind to make it stand out more so nothing was going to get in her way. I did two, but she chose the blue obviously. Its beautiful, we said blue all along.”

As a seamstress, customers will take items of clothing to Karen that need adjusting. She can adjust clothing, but she can also do curtains and pretty much anything else.

Karen said: “My car used to say ‘Buttons to Bridal’ because that’s exactly what I do.”

Karen has lived in the Lancaster area all her life and currently lives in Heysham, she said she has been a seamstress for as long as she can remember and started practicing the trade as a child.

Karen said: “I used to sew buttons onto my nanna’s tablecloth, and I’d go the next week and she’d taken them off, and I’d just sew them back on.”

She went on to master her skills throughout different factories in. She now works for herself at Karen’s Clothing Alterations and is currently based in Lancaster City Laundry but is waiting to move into her own shop soon.

On making the adjustments Karen said ‘it takes a lot of time’ whilst saying it took ‘the biggest part of the morning’ to complete Paris’ adjustments.

Karen said: “She didn’t give me very long to do it, she rang me on the Sunday and she needed it for the Tuesday.”

Karen completed all the adjustments in time for the trip to Vegas, and said: “She could have gone anywhere, but because I’ve done work for her before she’s happy with the work I’ve done so she came back. I think they’re fantastic, you’ll see them down the local chippy or the market, they’re really good.”

With so much awe in response to the fit of Paris’ breath-taking dress, Karen said she felt proud of herself and told Lancs Live:

She added: “I felt like she had to have the blue one, we kept saying that it had to be the blue one.”

Karen also shared photos of Paris’ fittings and the process of redesigning the dress to Facebook, where she said she ‘had a fabulous time’ with all fittings taking place in the Fury family home overlooking Morecambe Bay.
