Welcome To The Studio

Welcome To The Studio

Over the summer months we have been extremely busy transforming our sweet stockroom into a creative haven. Five rails crammed with dreamy dresses, beautiful blouses and swaying skirts wheeled away to house our chatty sewing-machines and unique workshops.

Our Spring Photo Shoot...

Our Spring Photo Shoot...

On many occasions the most inspiring ideas and plans for capturing our beautiful stock can come to mind and feel so exciting to initiate. Also on many occasions, the reality of bringing these ideas to fruition leave the initial idea lost in a blur of budget requirements, weather changes and sometimes, it just not working out.

The Last Buying Trip of 2017

The Last Buying Trip of 2017

We spend our morning going through beautiful vintage, and if it wasn't for the sudden drop in temperature, -4  I am sure we would have spent the entire day choosing new stock for the shop. It was so cold that my feet were numb and my hands were like ice, textiles always seem to be colder to the touch in the winter.
