First Class New Kitty Dresses

I just announced on Facebook that we had some new Kitty Dresses coming and it created quite a stir. I know you ladies love this dress as much as I do. Originally designed as a Day Dress, I found it works just as well for evening.   I have chosen some deeper colours with an effective Anemone Print in Red and Teal this time. Also a fabulous Stamp Print in Black and Caramel and a gorgeous Pink Carousel design. You requested more novelty prints- so here you have them. They... Read More

Will you be a Sweetheart or a Heartbreaker?

Valentine’s Day is always a great excuse to dress up. There are always plenty of parties to go to- all you have to decide is if you see yourself as a Sweetheart or a Heartbreaker…or maybe a bit of both. Whatever you decide you can be sure to find a great outfit on our website. Nothing says Sweetheart better than our Sweetheart Dresses or you can sizzle while breaking hearts in something a bit more risqué like a Red Halterneck Pencil Dress or even a Duchess Grace Circle Dress. Whatever... Read More

The New Laura Dress- Winter Wear from Daytime to Night

I’m sure by now you ladies are well aware that rather than design a range, I make what I would like to be wearing.                     Summer is no problem as we have Dresses for every occasion in warm weather. This transfers well into evening too, but for daytime winter wear there wasn’t so much choice.                     I used to just wear Pedal Pushers with boots and a turtleneck. Always dressed up with... Read More

Vivien’s Party Essentials

Ok, so everyone keeps asking me what I wear to a party.   I always used to be about the Vintage when it came to special occasions, but now I can easily say it’s the Grace Dress. I just love wearing the Grace Dress either with heels or little ankle boots. A cute Beret always finishes the outfit off nicely.                                           For Accessories, I usually go with Pearls as they’re... Read More

Road to the Orient

Well ladies, I think we’ve outdone ourselves this time with our new Oriental Sarong and Bolero Sets. They have arrived slightly late, as we were waiting on the fabric that was taking the long journey from Japan.                           The designs have been taken from Vintage Kimono patterns and emblazoned with gold for the most glamorous effect you could possibly hope for.   I can’t wait to wear one of these gorgeous gowns to a party soon. When I... Read More

New Gypsy Tops

Our cute new Gypsy Tops have arrived. For Autumn I thought it would be a great time try out some Chiffon and Lace fabrics. I was very excited to find these wonderful faux lace effect fabrics as it made me think of Marilyn in Bus Stop. Just a shame we didn’t have time to make the skirt she was wearing too. The gorgeous colours in the faux Lace are just perfect for Christmas and NYE parties. The Chiffon would be great for any time; being slightly see-through it gives you... Read More

Vivien of Holloway Holograms in Doctor Who

Well nobody was more excited than me when we got an order from the Doctor Who team. I used to watch Doctor Who as a child, though mostly watching from behind the armchair as it was so scary. I think the new show is doing a wonderful job, with the mix of scary, comedy and absurdity that was always a great part of Doctor Who.                       And, as usual, the ladies in our Facebook group, ‘I have a Vivien of...

The Fabulous Paloma Faith

Well, it seems like only yesterday that I saw this beautiful young lady sing for the first time. I was in a little basement bar in Soho run by my friend Jake Vegas. There would always be plenty of jamming going on and special guest singers. The talent there was always high.                               When I heard Paloma sing then, and still now, it made the hairs on my arms stand up. Her voice is so amazing... Read More

Vivien of Holloway does Tiki on The Thames 19/10/2015

Tiki on The Thames

For those of you not aware, this week was London Rum Experience Week  from 12-18 October. Nothing says Rum quite like a Tiki Party, so last Thursday we went along to a Tiki Boat party hosted by Ian Burrell, the Global Rum Ambassador, and Cheeky Tiki. These guys are responsible for designing and fitting out all the wonderful Tiki and Themed Bars you see popping up around the world.           I woke up Thursday morning wondering how I was going to get all my work done...
