Old clothes, poetry, music and the beauty of the natural world inspire me to be present and yet transcend time at the same time. Every day in each moment we have the opportunity to create magic in myriad ways and for me clothing is such a deep part of that. What character do I feel today? What am I going to make and give to the world? An outfit in itself can be a work of art...I guess that is what is meant by style...how we collage together clothes out of how we feel emotionally and physically. It is magic really, the creation of a beautiful illusion that we present to the world that affects those around us. The ability to create is one of the greatest gifts we have as human beings, so in my small way I hope by offering wonderful clothes and old goods I can inspire those who come across my shop to dream their dreams and create their own magic.

  1. Wow it all looks so amazing Toni! You have an INCREDIBLE eye for style that goes beyond mere fashion and you're spot on about Anita Pallenberg's influence. You can still see it echoing around the streets of London, and still see Anita herself trotting along the King's Road(unsurprisingly rather weather-beaten these days). A friend of mine escorted her to some kind of anniversary screening of Performance a year or so ago but I've not met her myself. My Mum well remembers London in the 60s and was around that Stones scene. Of course Chelsea was a very different place then. Even in the late 70s when I was a child, it still had the cutting-edge culture vibe but today...it's gone the way of big chain stores and name-brand boutiques. Very little funkiness anymore. Anyway, thanks for this great site! Check out mine if you've got a minute, appropriately my latest post is all about a mysterious pair of silver vintage shoes. xxx Diana Trimble, UK
