Charlie Brear had been a stylist for 10 years when she was required to source a plethora of vintage dresses for a commercial shoot. On selling dresses afterwards, she was surprised at how popular they were -- and that light bulb moment inspired her to find the Vintage Wedding Dress Company in 2005.
The company was re-branded as Charlie Brear in January 2013; in time for the launch of her first mainline fashion ready-to-wear collection.
Charlie Brear collections of ready-to-wear, bridal and additions are designed and produced entirely in UK, using a diverse range of hand selected fabrics and trims. Unique pieces are still sourced internationally for her Original Vintage Collection, which is solid exclusively at the flagship store in London.
