About

The Ivy Retreat is a meticulously curated online boutique for the modern vintage lover.

Hi! I’m Rachel and thanks for visiting! I've always been a creative and have had a serious passion for design, shopping, and creating since, well... forever. As a little girl I would sew items for friends, draw everything I saw, and play dress up like it was going out of style. Naturally, my interests led me to design school where I majored in Apparel Design and Technology, studied abroad in Paris, Milan, and London, and interned in New York City with Vintage Loft NYC.

After a few years of work in the field of wedding planning and design, I decided to go back to my fashion roots in April of 2014 and create The Ivy Retreat. The concept for the business was formed from a lifetime love of all things vintage and my own style of clothing design and restoration. The Ivy Retreat is my place of peace and comfort; a haven for elegant pieces of clothing from a time when mass production wasn't all the rage. My specialized attention is dedicated to finding beautiful and timeless styles by scouring every inch of antique stores and estate sales I come across. I will forever be on a quest for the most beautiful and ethereal gowns to add to the shop; it's what I enjoy most!

The Ivy Retreat is a meticulously curated online boutique for the modern vintage lover. Here, I focus on finding high-end, ethereal gowns and timeless pieces from the 1930’s through the 1970’s. From dreamy bridal wear to glamorous evening gowns to fun vintage prom pieces, The Ivy Retreat has an outfit for every special occasion. All items are one of a kind and restored to their best possible condition.


I hope you are inspired to remember the beauty in what has been forgotten and fall in love with fashions from the past. Enjoy your stay and check back in regularly for updated collections. If you live in the Austin, Texas area and are wanting to stop by The Ivy Retreat's boutique please email Rachel [!at] theivyretreat.com for appointments!
