    Playful yet chic Pinafore

    13 August, 2019

    My pinafore dress arrived today and I have spent the entire day with a huge beam on my face. I have purchased from TEOC several times before however I have only ever bought semi formal items with the intention of wearing them for a special occasion. This time I splashed out on a piece I am certain I will wear over and over again. I want to thank the team for somehow creating such a wonderfully playful yet sophisticated dress. I feel comfortable lounging around in this as it fits to a T but I can still breathe! I also love that I can hide away under the never ending circular skirt when I’m curling up on the sofa then when I stand up the material hangs perfectly in a really flattering way so I’m sure I’ll feel super confident when I go out and about and show it off! I also love how I don’t feel so guilty buying clothes when I buy from TEOC – it’s so much better knowing you are promoting sustainability whilst also enjoying purchasing beautiful quality clothes. Thanks so much team, I am really over the moon.

    So happy with my custom Nathalie dresses!

    31 July, 2019

    I couldn’t resist getting twp custom Nathalie shift dresses after falling in love with some fabrics on their instagram account. The process to order a custom dress was easy (as long as you have your correct measurements). They arrived a few weeks later and I love them! I’m plus size, so it can be hard to find a shift dress that fits well–but when it’s made to measure, they fit perfectly! I cannot wait to wear them and encourage you to support awesome, women owned and sustainable businesses!

    Chic, elegant and special

    22 February, 2019

    Just wanted to say thank you very much and the dress arrived today. It’s really lovely and just what I wanted, which is a casual smart dress to wear for my 30th wedding anniversary in May. The fabric is a beautiful floral design and so very well made – perfect for a summer occasion.

    Amys and Catherines

    8 September, 2018

    Absolutely adore my Amy and Catherine dresses, every fabric is so unique that they make every dress feel special and different. All well made and a few made for special occasions with tight deadlines which Cecily and the team have gone over and above in helping and working to. Thanks so much!

    My Catherine dress

    12 August, 2018

    My Catherine dress has been the dress of the Summer! I have already worn it about 30 times (it washes easily btw) and I expect I will be wearing a few mores times too this Summer. It was such a delight to go downstairs into the workshop to choose the fabric. So many people have admired it and its been a joy to tell them about The Emperors Old Clothes and their business ethos-keep going fab team of women!

    PERFECT Floaty Shift Dress

    9 August, 2018

    I saw Cecily modelling the floaty shift dress on Instagram and instantly loved the simple lines and loose fit. After contacting Cecily and choosing a fabric (really hard as there was so much gorgeous choice) it took about a week for my dress to be made. This is so quick! I’ve worn the dress several times already. The texture of the linen and colour is just lovely. I’m SO pleased with the dress and would highly recommend the bespoke service.

    Summer delights

    8 August, 2018

    In this fab heatwave, I’ve been wanting to look chic yet stay cool. I’ve just purchased two items from Emperors – dungarees and a shift dress – which do just that. Loving lounging in my dungarees when I’m off work and my shift dress is elegant and airy; perfect for more formal events. Both garments have elicited admiring comments as people have asked me where they come from. I happily tell them while also knowing each garment is one of a kind so I’ll never bump into anyone wearing exactly the same thing. Thank you, Emperors team! Nathalie B
