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
