When I was a little girl I fell in love with Victorian cage crinolines.  Growing up that love became a passion for beautiful antique fashions, textiles and accessories.  That passion has enabled me to bring you some of the finest historic fashions available on the market today.  Collecting antique and vintage clothing is kind to the earth and a tangible investment option you can enjoy on a daily basis.  Appreciated by all ages and cultures it offers a wonderful connection to history, revealing how people lived.  The attention to detail in the construction of these intricate garments and accessories is remarkable.  There is significant value in owning quality antique garments and it is my pleasure to make them available to you.
