Well, it's been nearly a year since we opened the shop and I'm delighted to say that I think I may have cracked my own label clothing.
I wanted to reach as many women as possible, from all sizes and shapes, ages and budgets, and although I love the British labels I have found that the market is pretty flooded with the regulars- Collectif, Hellbunny, Lindy Bop etc.
Having spent an energetic day leading through hundreds of garments at London Edge (a huge fair for all Alternative clothing suppliers) I was struck by the varying qualities of the clothes from all the usual stockists.
My dream was always to bring my own spin on the vintage scene and I just couldn't find a supplyier that I loved exclusively, so I started hand picking quality pieces from my favourites to get a collection together. I also approached a wonderful supplier of mine, Pretty Retro, and hopefully very soon we will have an exclusivel pencil skirt to compliment my collection.
Just to tease you, this is part of a new Red Carpet collection made to order that I designed and my brilliant seamstress ran up for me. We will soon be bringing together a pinup collection filled with cigarette pants, pencil skirts and beautiful tops designed by Michelin Pitt in America!
Things are moving pretty swiftly and there doesn't seem to be much time to get my garments online so luckily I now have a brilliant business partner in my husband Dom, (who all the ladies seem to love in the shop!) so I can concentrate on bringing you more beautiful things in the coming days!
Watch this space or if you're about in colchester, drop in for a try!
Lots of love 💋Carli xx
