Belle of the War

We’re delighted to be asked along to 2012’s  World War Experience. We’ll be there with our pop-up parlour as well as 1930s and 1940s demos throughout the day. We’ll be armed with rollers, combs and tongs to do some vintage hair styling.

We can advise on styles dependent on hair type and length and will have plenty of images for you to browse, whether it’s 1940s victory rolls or a classic set that takes your fancy. We’ll be doing this on a first come first served basis so be sure to come early!

Our emporium in Bruntsfield is home to vintage-inspired ladies fashion and accessories. We import brands from America as well as British designers and have reproduction garments concentrating on the 1940s,  1950s and early 1960s styles. We have a full range of lingerie and corsetry and our main collections are complemented by vintage luggage and jewellery and hats.
