I'm something of a study-aholic and in 2014 i completed my ma in history of design at the rca. My dissertation focused upon my passion for fashion history entitled london before it swung: british ready-to-wear under the model house group and fashion house group 1946-66. I've also previously worked as a museum curator running a local history museum in surrey and as a research assistant at the v&a. I have a real passion for research and will often put tons of research into finding out the history of my pieces that i sell. Most items are styled with petticoats underneath.
These are not included in the sale. Items may be pegged or pinned to mannequin to show fit more accurately.Photographs may be lightened/ darkened to try and show garments to their best advantage, i will always try and mention if the colour in the pictures is not quite right. Most of the items i sell are vintage, this means they will not be like new items and show some age, but where possible i will always mention problems.
I make every effort to describe any noticeable flaws or issues that affect the appearance or function of a garment. Please note i work hard to take all of the pictures you see here.
