Fresh New Florals!

I’m sure you ladies have seen all our lovely new florals this season. Since I know many of you just can’t get enough of these dresses we have decided that most of the prints will be limited edition.

Most of the new florals will be in the sateen fabrics which I know you ladies love as it has a very slight amount of elastane in it for a more comfortable fit. So... Read More

Happy Birthday to us! Our Holloway shop turns five.

Our Holloway shop is five years old today! At the tender age of 18 Vivien began selling her hand-made 50’s reproductions in the famous Kensington Market. The Vivien of Holloway brand was born in the year 2000 and our very first shop was above a motorcycle garage in Camden. As you can imagine, it had a certain charm as well as lots of brawny mechanics. Helpful for heavy lifting! Vivien’s sights were set higher and we soon began to outgrow the space. We needed somewhere to further showcase Vivien’s beautiful creations... Read More
