About

Finding a way to share my unique aesthetic with the world...

I really enjoy hunting for treasure, especially vintage fabrics, dolls and toys
and enjoy bringing them back to life or finding new and interesting ways to present them to the world. I have worked in film, theatre and advertising, designing costumes, making props and building sets. I have also styled a number of large scale events.
I decided to open a shop, as a way to release my creative urges out into the world.
I have always made things, I particularly enjoy making clothing for my children, and creating tiny things like dolls and toys. So using these skills, as a starting point for my own sewing, pattern making and design work.
I studied fashion design in 2007 and after having my son in 2009, I thought having an online shop would be a lovely way to carve out a creatively satisfying living.
While being able to stay home and care for my young children.

Welcome to Lady Froufrou. Sustainability and repurposing are very important to me, for the sake of the planet and our combined future. I am a maker who loves to use and re-purpose salvaged and vintage materials. I make some of the things in my shop, while other items are collected and curated by me.I will be releasing limited runs of the things I make. Aside from the rainbow Kewpie dolls, I am not accepting custom orders at this time.
I try to describe the condition of vintage items to the best of my ability, including flaws and imperfections, it is rare that a vintage item is in mint or unused condition, unless otherwise stated.
