♥ HISTORY: 

~ LAURA ASHLEY ~

"I reckon that women looked their best at the turn of the century..." ~ Laura Ashley

Laura Ashley are one of the world's most recognizable British brands and have over 40 years experience in making colourful, seasonal clothing with retro styling and timeless chic, capturing the essence of the Victorian era and feminine florals that make all of their designs quintessentially English and timeless. 


Laura's love of all things Victorian led to the longer length silhouette and feminine styles which would become the company's trademark and was right on trend at the end of the 1960's when fashion turned from the mini to the maxi - a trend that has since returned with force emphasizing Laura Ashley's timeless quality.

In 1961 Laura Ashley and husband Bernard Ashley moved from their Kent home, the original design and production venue, to Carno, Wales, to enable them to expand the business and be inspired by the rolling Wales countryside. 

Their vintage pieces are now so sought after and desired! - and once you have seen and worn their clothing you'll know why they are so adored! 



SIZE: PLEASE SEE MEASUREMENTS BELOW TO BE SURE OF FIT AS VINTAGE SIZES CAN COME UP A BIT SMALLER THAN MODERN DAY SIZING...xxx

UK 16 - in label


EURO 42 - in label

Some items do not carry a full range of international sizes in the label so i use an internet international size conversion site to translate UK sizes into EURO and US sizes ~ the site has proved very accurate, however if you are unsure please check sizes for yourself.

All measurements are taken with the garment pulled a bit to flatten ~ and please be aware that there is inevitably a slight discrepancy in the ways different people measure ~ so all measurements are approximate and please give or take about a 1/4 inch or so either way.  



Any QUESTIONS please ask!
