♥ 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 ASK FOR ANY MEASUREMENTS YOU NEED TO BE SURE OF FIT AS VINTAGE SIZES OFTEN COME UP A BIT SMALLER THAN MODERN DAY SIZING...xxx

UK 10 - in label


EURO 36 - 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!
