  • ‘I rarely keep anything for myself when
    I’m sourcing vintage for the store but
    this dress is the one piece I just
    couldn’t let go of. It’s from around
    1910 and made of Irish crochet,
    which is very rare and hard to find - it
    can cost tens of thousands of pounds.
    There’s something so demure and
    wearable about the Edwardian era,
    although we wear what they
    traditionally would have worn as
    ‘Vintage has always been my passion –
    one day my mum brought Granny’s
    dress from 1923 down from the loft
    and I fell in love. I love the decadence
    and seeing something that’s been so
    beautifully made. We’ve lost that
    quality a bit.
    ‘I haven’t worn the dress outside yet
    because it’s a work of art to me, it’s
    like couture. My partner collects art
    and I collect vintage dresses.’
