I started Real Green Dress in 2012, after a long career in conservation with national museums. Now I get to be creative with designing and indulge my love of vintage at the same time. People are always telling me how lucky I am to have such a wonderful job. I never forget it is made possible by my various and diverse customers, who are the nicest of people.
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. For brides there are two collections to choose from; Pure, original restored vintage and Evolution, a unique collection of remodelled gowns.
But what about the ‘Green’? I try to be as green as possible in all aspects of the business. 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. I’m not wasting my years of museum training either! The studio is in a converted farm building, furnished with vintage and recycled treasures. And it doesn’t stop there. Mail order dress boxes and boutique carrier bags are reusable and all our printing is done with environmentally friendly inks on sustainable card. Not the cheapest option but I’m happier with it that way.
I love to have visitors at the studio but only by appointment. That way we get as much time as we need, without being interrupted! Give me call me on 01276 513368 or email email@example.com
