I’ve been hosting vintage clothes parties at my house for the last four years. Friends, a glass or two of fizz, great clothes and lots of styling advice from the people who count most – your mates.

I got the idea from talking to my friends about shopping.  A recurring theme was they had no time and hated shopping alone. They all loved the fashion advice and approval of other women – so the Retrouvé house parties were born.

The emphasis is on hassle free shopping in a laid back atmosphere. Coats, dresses, shoes, accessories all in one place with your friends on hand to offer advice.

“…taking things off hangers, and sashaying towards the mirror, catwalk style, it’s the dressing-up aspect that makes this evening so much fun.”

The Telegraph, November 2011

I host parties at my house four or five times a year but I’ll also come to you. Vintage evenings are a great way to get together with your friends to find outfits for a big event or just to shop together and have fun.

Please contact me if you’d like to come to one of my parties or if you want me to come to you. I’m based in London but happy to travel anywhere within the M25 or thereabouts.
