My name's Louise and I run the Catwalk Creative on-line boutique and dress agency. When I'm not sourcing out the best vintage merchandise around, I'm taking photographs and writing about it. I love wearable vintage pieces that work every day, everywhere!  I'm a member of the Vintage Fashion Guild (VFG) which is an international organisation for vintage fashion professionals. I'm also a member of The eVintage Society, one of the best destinations on the web for vintage resources. So, if there's a particular type of garment you can't find, let me know and I'll do my utmost to source it out for you. If you'd like to learn more about Catwalk Creative, please read my interview with Fashion Birdcage:

Why buy vintage? There's lots of sound reasons for buying vintage and recycled clothing. Not only is it cool to be an eco-friendly fashionista but what better than knowing you're purchasing the most dreamy merchandise that no-one else will have? you're guaranteed that every piece of vintage merchandise sold by Catwalk Creative is a complete one-off and therefore exclusive to you. That's why shopping vintage is so exciting. You just never know what you're going to find!  So, if you are a budding fashionista, you can adapt your favourite look from the catwalks of London and Paris to achieve your own unique and individual style. All you need is a little imagination and a selection of pre-owned and pre-loved merchandise. That's how the name Catwalk Creative came about.

All vintage merchandise is hand-picked from around the world. My aim is to bring you the best quality, lightly-used vintage clothing around. You'll find fresh and funky vintage frocks, separates, outerwear and accessories; all available at affordable prices. In addition, if you are shopping on a really tight budget, take a look at Catwalk's Vintage Sale Items department where you'll find merchandise at 10 and under (plus free UK postage).  International buyers will always receive a shipping discount. Simply email to confirm which items you would like to purchase and you'll receive confirmation of the price including shipping.

Customer Service - If you have a question, just complete the contact form on the website; I welcome your emails and will do my very best to help. You are guaranteed the very best in customer service; excellent communication (polite and friendly banter); quick dispatch time (posted within one day of your cleared payment); a 100% satisfaction guarantee (7 day return policy) and merchandise that's tissue wrapped to perfection! What more could you ask for? A free gift? Well, funny you should mention that because Catwalk Creative does like to spoil you every once in a while. You just never know . . . .

Dress Agency Merchandise - For those of you who just can't resist a design label, the Dress Agency Merchandise department is definitely the place to be. There's everything from Christian Louboutin shoes to Samantha Thavasa handbags and some wonderful evening wear too. Catwalk Creative's philosophy is all about recycling merchandise, whether it's fifty years old or almost new. A garment that's been purchased in haste or one that no longer fits properly should not be left to vanquish at the back of a wardrobe. So, here you'll find a mouth-watering selection of designer pieces, all in A1 condition; some of it being brand-new and completely unworn. Just take a look around to see all the marvellous recycled goodies you can buy, all from the comfort of your armchair!  The Dress Agency department caters for men, women and children. Stock is added weekly so do keep checking back to see what's available. Catwalk Creative is here to provide for all your fashionista needs!

Gift Certificates - Have you run out of ideas for gifts?  If so, Catwalk Creative Gift Certificates are the answer. They'll be sent by email to the address of your choice. You can print them off and put them inside a card or the certificate can be emailed directly to the recipient of your choice. They make the perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries or as a special 'thank you'. Each certificate has a unique reference number. You can purchase them in increments from 20 to 100 and they're valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. Please refer to Terms and Conditions (item 13) for full details.

Photographs - Viewing merchandise up-close and personal is really important when buying on-line. However, most on-line stores will provide you with just one photograph which can make your decision to buy a difficult one. Catwalk Creative accepts that without seeing an item in the flesh, it can be quite daunting to make that special purchase. What's the texture of the fabric like? Will it co-ordinate with the handbag i've bought? And so on . . . Sound familiar?  Well hopefully Catwalk Creative takes all the indecision away by providing you with three high-quality photographs next to each item description - plus there's a whole lot more in the Gallery to drool over. There's a Vintage Gallery and a Dress Agency Gallery. Just  click on the arrows left or right to move around each section. You can get a real close-up view of the textures and colors and if you'd still like more, just complete the contact form and I'll send you some.

Sizing - As well as viewing the merchandise, it's really important you get the right fit. There's nothing more frustrating than receiving an item that simply doesn't fit properly. Remember too that clothes pre-1960 do not have size labels and even if they did, they wouldn't necessarily correspond to today's sizes. That's why Catwalk Creative provides you with full and accurate measurements for each garment. If you have your vital statistics to hand bingo! If not, simply use the measurements provided against a similar piece of your own clothing and always add on a good inch or two for a really comfortable fit. There's a handy Sizing Guide to help you along your way along with a modern clothing conversion chart with international sizes too.

And finally, when you're searching for your vintage gems, muse on the wise words of American writer Gail Ruben Bereny who said, Above all remember that the most important thing you can take anywhere is not a Gucci bag or French-cut jeans; it's an open mind.

Thank you for taking time to read about Catwalk Creative.  Spread the love for vintage!
