Updated  2nd. June 2014

Are you off to the ˜Goodwood Revival” and need a period outfit to wear? Well you’ve certainly come to the right place!

So what do we have to offer? It’s difficult to say at any one time as our stock is constantly changing and there will always be a couple of items out on hire somewhere. It is therefore best to have a think about what style takes your fancy before you start looking. If you have no preferences, then go ahead and browse our pages. To get you started, look at the frocks on this page being shown off at Goodwood itself. Do you like any of the styles here but would like to see more? Well take a look at our gallery pages to see if anything takes your fancy. The Gallery links are to the left of this text. For more details on any of the items shown, please email us.

Don’t forget that we offer advice on fit and sizing as well as our current hire rates, once again on the links in the left hand column.

Lete 50's early 60's short sleeve dress

And now for a few more ‘veterans of the ’Goodwood Revival’, all sadly without photographic evidence of their adventure!

Navy and white outfit from the late 50s or early 60s

(20) A cute little number originating from New Zealand, from the late 50s or very early 60s. A typical ‘sailor’ type colouration sporting a navy blue top with white buttons and piping, paired to a swingy little white pleated skirt.


(57) A simply adorable little frock with a muted red/orange check on taupe with a full-circle skirt. The age once again is from the late 50’s or the early 60’s. Shown here with a matching cap belonging to the model, plus a period camera belonging to the studio. A period elasticated belts with metal buckle from our belts collection completes the look.


(67) This little skirt has survived well for over 50 odd years and could still be worn for ’smart’ if paired to a nice blouse and / or jacket.

With all that said, try substituting those rather super high heels for something a bit more conservative for a more ‘casual’ outfit, or even add a period blazer and you have great 50’s 60’s schoolgirl look just like when it visited Goodwood in 2008.


(65) right and (66) far right.

These two could be almost be twins although the styling is slightly different with each one. Here we have two classic late 50’s house / day dresses. Note the light crinoline under the green one to the right to give the skirt some more flare. Simply perfect authenticity, especially if paired to a button thru’ cardi. The pink one has a matching fabric belt and neck-scarf, neither of which are shown here.
