    New incredible clothes shop with the most beautiful reproduction clothes from the 1920s-1940s. The choices are breathtaking and I could live in here. I want one of everything.
    The beautiful art deco furniture displaying the array of dresses and swing music playing in the background make a wonderful atmosphere. The service is also amazingly friendly and Rowena, the owner, gives honest expert advice about what works and what doesn't.

    First to Review

    Lovely, lovely dresses tailored after original cuts from the 1930s and 1940s in modern fabrics. This is not an Vintage or Second hand shop. The cloth are new, but in the fashion of  decades past. She recently added flapper dresses with loads of sequins all over. just divine. All of her stock is amazing. Most of the figure hugging dresses are made in a kind of stretch material which shows off the best parts of our womanly figure, but is still practical. The shop owner is a bubbly lady, who really knows how to sell this stuff and she always has a great range of accessories around as well ... especially shoes are available in all shapes and sizes.

    One thing that knocked of a star ... the price. Dresses start around £130 and go up to over £300 for the flapper dresses. They are amazing ... I just cannot afford any. It makes me cry every time I go there.

History

Established in 2009.

Our London Boutique has been open in Kingly Court since July 2011 though the business has been trading since 2009.

Owner Rowena Howie's hobby was swing dancing and her love to dress up and dance spilled over into real life. Her fondness for classic tailoring and appreciation for the female form led her to rediscover vintage style. These desires melded into a desire to provide timeless styles and flattering, elegant design to women who despair with the new trends and throwaway culture of the high street.
