Hello! Welcome to my new website. I’m working towards an online selling shop here, as well as my Instagram (hopefully Etsy soon too) meanwhile please contact me here about any items on here you’re interested in. There’s more pieces for sale here; current stock for sale on Instagram.
MY STUDIO:- I recently closed my physical London retail shop after 12 years. It’s sad to leave the community but I have big creative plans ahead and now more time for more research, writing, creative collaborations – and selling online! As everyone was asking me to for years…
I’ve extended my studio facilities to house my large vintage fashion resource archive of accessories (shoes, bags, hats, scarves), textiles, fabrics, fashion prints and interior items, which will be available online and by appointment, with some pieces for hire for fashion and costume reasearch, as before.
I have a large 1960s and 1970s vintage clothing collection., particularly the Scottish London based designer Jean Muir who is one of favorites to wear, collect and study. Also Biba from 1960s and 70s, Bus Stop, Ossie Clark. Plus Italian and French vintage couture form the 60s and 70s including Emilio Schuberth and Antonelli Roma, YSL, Sonia Rykiel, Chloe and Diorling. With British design by Janice Wainwright, Jean Varon, Colin Glasgoe, Jeff Banks, Mr Freedom, Frank Usher kaftans, Bernat Klein, BIll Gibb to Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren. Plus Japanese design pieces by Issy Miyake, Commes des Garcons and Kansai Yammamoto.
I’ve been a collector of vintage fashion, textiles and folk costume for decades, whilst working in music videos, film and TV as a Director and Producer, including 9 years as the senior creative at MTV UK’s On Air Branding department. In 2006 I was sole supplier to the V&A Museum with original items to sell in the shop of their landmark exhibition ‘The Golden Age of Couture 1947-57’. I opened my first shop on in 2008 and continue to work with many global fashion brands, film and TV costume designers and stylists. From Marc Jacobs and Tory Burch to Star Wars, Katy Grand to The Crown TV series. My loyal customers rely on me for discretion, fashion history knowledge, styling – and buckets of patience!
