1. When did you first get interested in vintage fashion & why?

I have been interested in vintage fashions since I was a teenager. My mom disliked anything OLD.....so I had to love it....you know how teenagers are. I was lucky to spend time with some wonderful people when I was a teen who introduced me to vintage fashions and a lifelong love affair was born.

2. Do you regularly wear vintage?

I don’t own any winter coats that aren’t vintage ones. I usually have something vintage on every day, mostly accessories or sweaters.

3. Do you have a Holy Grail?

I would love to own an Irene skirt suit, I enjoy hunting for one every chance I get.

4. If you could visit the atelier of any fashion designer (dead or alive), who would it be?

I recently acquired an Ossie Clark outfit and while researching I have become very interested in Ossie’s designs with Celia Birtwell’s textiles. I would like to visit their showroom during their heyday of the late 60s to early 70s.

5. What do you see as the future of vintage?

I believe that the interest in vintage fashions will continue. As it becomes harder to find examples of great 40s and 50s clothes the demand for them will continually increase.

6. What is your favorite item in your shop?

My favorite item is the Ossie Clark 70s two piece skirt and fitted blouse outfit. If it fit me I would never let it go.
Here are a few more items from Cat's shop:


Vintage 70s Caftan Dress / Bill Tice / Blue With White Embroidery / M L
