SHOP VINTAGE IN LONDON WITHOUT BEING STUCK IN THE 90s

This dancing queen wanted to take her second hand find - a vintage Chloé suit - in a new direction, so she sent it to Clothes Doctor for some alterations.

Our customer was shopping the charity shops of Notting Hill, London, when she spotted this amazing vintage suit by the French fashion house, Chloé. The only problem was the legs were too flared, making them unflattering and hard to wear. After pinning the legs of the suit, she had it collected and taken to our workshop in Cornwall.

This is where the magic happened. With one leg complete a comparison photo was needed.

 

What a difference a narrow leg can make on a pre-loved piece, bringing it back from the 90s; turning it into a sleek silhouette whilst still retaining the incredible Chloé essence and detailing.

She was thrilled with the result and even let us take a few pics at her home in East London. Scroll down for more.
