Always Well Dressed

This shop comes from the heart as I am a life long lover of bright colours and vintage clothes. The style and history of African clothing has fascinated me since I was a teenager, but it wasn't until I first visited the continent in 2011 that I saw the traditional ankara fabrics in such a wide array of colours, patterns and styles and I was truly blown away. My second love- vintage clothing. Again, something I have loved since I was a teen and was always trawling through charity shops and vintage stores looking for those rare gems. Despite what fashion may push as the next best thing- I wanted the best thing from 30 years ago!

Paree People is a fusion of vintage style and African fabrics, using classic retro silhouettes that are rendered using bright African prints, with a wealth of history behind them. The word "paree" is a Mandinka word meaning "well dressed". Paree People are always well dressed people. Please join us on our sartorial journey.
