Some people like to own and admire antique and vintage treasures and some people like to wear and use them. Whatever your reason for buying from us, for investment or pure pleasure, you can be assured Real Green Dress has drawn on decades of professional experience in conservation, curatorship and design. Every piece that passes through our studios is carefully examined and treated before being offered for sale.
We all like to do our bit for the environment (I’ve yet to meet a customer who doesn’t) but when it comes to planning a wedding or an event, being green isn’t always easy. The ‘Real’ in Real Green Dress is a good start, wearing real vintage dresses must be the most glamorous side of recycling. But what about the ‘Green’? Dresses are cleaned before sale using the least invasive treatment methods possible. This is not the easiest or quickest choice but better for your dress and for the environment. And it doesn’t stop there. I try to be as green as possible in all aspects of the business. You’ll find recycled mannequins and low energy lights in our shop. I’m not wasting my years of museum training either! Mail order dress boxes and boutique carrier bags are reusable and printing is done with environmentally friendly inks on sustainable card. Not the cheapest option but I’m happier with it that way.
You are welcome to visit our studio on the Surrey Hampshire borders by appointment (call 01276 513368 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) or have a look at the list of shows and fairs we will be attending. We also ship dresses all over the world via mail order so if you can’t find what you are looking for in our online shop, just ask.
