About


1947 Bespoke AboutHaving spent many years tirelessly altering our own carefully cultivated collections of vintage and contemporary dresses attempting to achieve the ever elusive perfect fit, we concluded that no amount of customisation could ever make them everything we wanted them to be.

We wanted timeless dresses that offered vintage style with contemporary charisma that made us feel both bold and feminine. We wanted dresses that we could wear to the boardroom and then out for the evening without requiring an entire outfit change.

We wanted dresses that were both practical and elegant with pockets that could hold a phone and leave our hands free to hold a drink at evening functions. We sought dresses made entirely of natural fibres, that would still look pristine at the end of each day and for years to come and lined in pure silk – not polyester – to keep us cool in the summer yet warm in the winter.

So we decided to design perfect dresses ourselves.

Throughout this collection runs our signature hourglass silhouette espousing impeccably defined wasp waists and voluminous skirts made current with architectural structure and detailing. We have designed these dresses so that they are both practical and elegant with three quarter length sleeves, longer length hems which fall flatteringly below the knee and discreet concealed pockets substantial enough to hold both a blackberry and iPhone.

We have resolutely refused to incorporate any synthetic fibres in our dresses and instead made a commitment to craft each garment from luxurious 100% natural English and Italian wool and silk fabrics offered in a spectacular range of bold colours available made to order through the website allowing each item to be truly unique and individual.

We adore these dresses. They are everything we ever wanted and could never find. We hope you love them as much as we do.
