I’m very excited about my pop-up shop I’m going to be doing on November 2/3/4/5 in Highgate village.  Building on the success of one I did in April this year I’ve now taken the shop opposite which is a proper shop (no ex William Hill for me anymore!) – with proper flooring, blank white walls, central heating and wifi – luxury!  It funnily enough used to be the oriignal butcher shop in Highgate and boasts the oldest concrete floor in the basement in the whole of N6!

Pop into my pop up shop between 10 am and 6 pm and you will be welcome!

Posing in her Annabelle dress in ivory that she wore for the dancing part of her wedding and her beautiful words re her honeymoon outfit – watch this space!!

“Thank you so much for all of your efforts to help me select the perfect dress for my honeymoon later this month.

You went out of your way to give me every possible size, style, fabric and colour to choose from, and although I wish I could have had all of them I’m delighted with my Dorothy dress in a beautiful silk.

Such amazing customer service and such beautiful designs, I’m looking forward to having an excuse to make my next purchase!”

Starting to prepare for Clerkenwell Vintage Fair this Sunday.  It’s at the amazing new venue called The Yard off Worship Street.  It’s a huge industrial style building on the ground floor with concrete flooring located at the end of a cute little courtyard.   It’s like the modern take on vintage fairs!  The building is airy and roomy with space to move about in.  Come this Sunday between 11 am and 5 pm.  Please email me at elaine@elainebernstein.com and I can put you on the guest list for a complimentary ticket.

Being photographed by Metro Publications at Clerkenwell Vintage Fair proudly showing off my dresses and holding the Belinda dress in scarlet.  We were at a new venue – the fabulous The Yard in Worship Street bang in the middle of Shoreditch.  A massive warehouse style ground floor venue with white brick walls, exposed iron beams and concrete floors made it a wonderful location for the fair.

Model Haley looking very “that’s when i fell for the leader of the pack” during the Portobello London Fashion Week shoot. TBH the Dorothy dress has such a wonderful skirt that you could ride a Vespa or even a bicycle with no risk!

Clerkenwell Vintage Fair 19 February 2017

Preparing some wonderful clothes to take to Clerkenwell Vintage Fair’s new venue which I’m really excited about!  It is being held at The Courthouse Hotel in Shoreditch.

The Courthouse Hotel combines rich history, classic design and modern, 5-star, luxury for a truly unique destination. Converted from London’s old courthouses, their premises once detained and tried some of London’s most wanted including Reggie and Ronnie Kray (whose former cells you can now enjoy a cocktail in at the Shoreditch venue!), Oscar Wilde, Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Christine Keeler and Keith Richards. After the Old Street Courthouse closed in 1996 it became a popular film location, providing the backdrop for shows like Luther and Spooks.

The beautiful building is Grade II listed and inside the Baroque features have been beautifully preserved to set the scene for a day of vintage shopping. Not to mention you’re right on the doorstop of one of London’s most vibrant, stylish and creative neighbourhoods.

Do email me for a name to be put on the guest list for free entry – 11 am – 5 pm.

Thank you so much for my dress (Dorothy navy). It has been great to find a designer that can make clothes inspired by the 1940’s era, who knows how material hangs on the body. I will have such joy wearing this dress over the festive season!
With very kind regards,
Sian
