♥ HISTORY: 

~ LAURA ASHLEY ~


Laura Ashley are one of the world's most recognizable British brands and have over 40 years experience in making beautifully tailored 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. 

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! 


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

♥ SIZE: PLEASE REMEMBER THAT VINTAGE SIZING OFTEN COMES UP SMALLER THAN MODERN DAY ~ PLEASE ASK FOR ANY  MEASUREMENTS YOU NEED TO BE SURE OF FIT....xxx


UK 12 in label


EURO 38 in label


US 8 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.





Any QUESTIONS please ask!


LASTLY, IN TWO WORDS........JUST BEAUTIFUL! xxx
