Kitty's Profile

About

I love antique and vintage as long as it is either beautiful, rustic or fun. However, my passion has always been for what I like to call the "Boudoir". So I have carefully collected over the years, lots of beautiful trousseau lingerie (that has not been worn) and perfume bottles, powder puffs, compacts, dresses, handbags, hats and jewelry. I guess anything for the well heeled vintage lady. The era that I relate to is from the 1920's through to the 1950's.

Apart from my love of vintage ladies wear I also have a great appreciation of handcrafted items made with integrity and love.

I don't like factory/mass produced anything!

I have been sewing since I was six (a long time ago), I come from a long line of seamstress' and tailors so it is in my blood. I was also taught by one of Christian Lacroix 's couturiers, and have tailoring qualifications. (After all of that my career was in Marketing in International Hotel companies.) However, I can't live without being creative.

BUT my greatest passion in life is animals, big and small, they have always given me unconditional love, comfort and warmth. I do my bit by giving a good home to rescue animals and writing letters to government officials to change outdated animal welfare laws.

I hope you enjoy browsing through my little Etsy Shop. I will be delighted to help you with any questions you may have.

Hugs to You,

Kitty.
