~ 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 beautifully tailored, high quality, seasonal clothing with retro styling and timeless chic, capturing the essence of the Victorian & Edwardian eras which 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! ~ Fashion Museums are now collecting their vintage pieces and we have been seeing retrospective exhibitions telling the Laura Ashley story...and once you have seen and worn their clothing you'll know why they are so adored!!!
