  • Well it’s been a few years now since Adam Ant went back on the road. But when he did he came to see us to dress his backing singers. Now that man always did have exceedingly good taste @vivienofholloway @adamantofficial #adamant #vivienofholloway #vintagestyle #80sfashion #antmusic #ontheroad #standanddeliver #vintagestyle
  • I think it’s time for a break. Which island are you off to for your holidays this Summer? I’m more of a winter holiday person myself. I like to get away and have some winter sun. While we have good weather at home why spend ages travelling. So many beautiful places in England and if you aren’t flying you can take more dresses with you 😁 Sam is setting things on fire in this Sarong matched with a gorgeous Handmade Katiki necklace all the way from Iceland. @vivienofholloway @death_by_deco #vivienofholloway #deathbydeco #katiki #pinup #vintagestyle #hawaiian #hawaiianfashion #tikidress #tikioasis #parasol #bucketbag #pinupgirl #madeinlondon

  • So much fun shooting with this gorgeous gal yesterday. With that amount of class all we had to do was throw clothes at her and she did the rest. I look forward to shooting with her again but I think Cocktails may be on the cards before that. So making our Katharine trousers and Teatimer look amazing @vivienofholloway @death_by_deco #vivienofholloway #deathbydeco #teatimer #katherinetrousers @misslfire #misslfire #1940sstyle #1940fashion #vintagestyle #madeinlondon
  • Mr Darrel Higham. That lucky man dating our gorgeous Katie. He was kind enough to drive her in for the shoot but didn’t want to get left out. So here he is modelling our men’s shirt. He didn’t want to take it off as you can see on his feed 😎 @vivienofholloway @darrelhighammusic @katiepedlow #vivienofholloway #darrelhigham #katiepedlow #vintagestyle #rocknroll #shootday #vintagereproduction #vintagemenswear #rockabilly #rockabillystyle #sombrero #madeinlondon

1950s Dresses & Clothing - Vivien Of Holloway

Welcome to Vivien of Holloway, where you can find a huge selection of stunning 1940s and 1950s dresses and separates with an authentic vintage charm.

Vivien of Holloway was established in 2000. However, the company's origins can be traced back further when lifestyle and fashion enthusiast Vivien started selling her handmade 1950s clothes and accessories at a shop in Kensington Market when she was just 18 years old.

Our 40s and 50s dresses are available in a range of sizes to fit and flatter modern figures - take a look at our handy online size guide to order the perfect clothes for you.

As well as vintage dresses, you'll also find trousers, skirts, tops and more, all from authentic 1940s and 1950s patterns. We haven't forgotten about the men either, with stylish shirts available in a variety of designs.

Buy your 40s and 50s style dresses and vintage-inspired clothing online today. Alternatively, you can shop the range at our London Holloway Road store
