Laura Ashley

One of our favourite dresses at the Christmas Vintage Threads fair was an original Laura Ashley gown. Blue with a big bow at the back, it was figure hugging and attention grabbing.

Rumour has it that there was more than one Laura Ashley dress at the last fair but unfortunately our fashion savvy shoppers had got their hands on the others before I had a chance to even see them!

We’ll all be going mad for the 70's this summer, the era that Laura Ashley was biggest in and a floating floral maxi of hers would definitely look great on the streets of Manchester - once theweather brightens up. So fingers crossed there will be some more there on Saturday!
