From Norwich to California, the Adventure of a 1950s Shirt.

I posted a 1950s shirt from my online shop to California the other day (a lovely address with the words Hollywood & Burbank in there too…) and it made me smile and think a little… Why do people buy vintage/period/original clothing, as opposed to buying retro or repro?

As we head swiftly towards Norwich Fashion Week 2016 with all of the main shows moving onwards & upwards in a ‘bigger & better’ way to a new venue & myself getting more involved than ever before, I thought it would be nice to look back at the Week in previous years and it has been interesting […] Continue reading →
