Lady Vintage was created in 2011 by husband and wife duo Sergio and Victoria Andreou, with a vision to create high quality UK made vintage inspired dresses that were affordable and unique.
Sergio’s family have been in the London ‘rag trade’ for over 60 years, across three generations, so you can be rest assured that we know what we are doing! Sergio’s maternal grandmother Christalla travelled all the way from Cyprus to London in 1953, at the age of just 21 on the promise from a friend (who she conversed with only by letter) that she would be able to get a job in a factory in Warren Street, making garments for Marks & Spencer. Having never left Cyprus, or ever having gone on an overseas in any way, Christalla spent 10 days on a ship, on her own, on the way to her new life. Using only the skills she had been taught by her mother, Christalla spent fifteen happy years working in the London factory.
To this day, Lady Vintage is very much a family affair, built on ‘old school’ techniques, still all made by hand ‘the proper way’!
