Here are some of the highlights, of the last five years of www.lovelysvintageemporium.com since we launched on March 29th 2011 at 6.30pm!
2011: We launched on March 29th 2011 and had 23 orders in the first 30 minutes after the website went live. Our first 'celebrity' client was US rapper Nicki Minaj. We were written about immediately by The Times, The Daily Telegraph, LOOK, Cosmopolitan, Vogue Russia and many, many blogs.
2012: We appeared on the This Morning TV show numerous times in their fashion features and presenter Holly Willoughby became a client.
Our vintage crush Dawn O'Porter became a much treasured client and she continues to very kindly mention us when she is interviewed about her love of vintage.
2013: We won the UK's Best Online Vintage Fashion Shop award at The National Vintage Awards 2013!!!!
2014: The Daily Telegraph Stella magazine named us one of 'Britain's 50 Best Vintage Fashion Boutiques'. Specsavers magazine ran a two page feature about our founder Lynnette Peck.
