Betty B is the brainchild of Betty Bridge – a Parisian born seamstress dedicated to resurrecting old stock vintage fabrics and transforming them into yum creations. With a nod to the practical 50’s and with a modern feminine twist it’s no wonder fashion sparklets Agyness Deyn and Lily Allen have already lapped up Betty’s dresses.
Inspired as a young whippersnapper by her granny, who worked as a seamstress under Coco Chanel and Madelaine Vionnet, Betty left Paris in a puff of pain au chocolat and sailed over to London to eat fish and chips, study fashion and to set up her studio in Golborne Road, where incidentally she is holding a sample sale tomorrow and Saturday.
For those of you who can’t make it this weekend, you can get your hands on some Betty B round the corner at Mensah (291 Portobello Rd) any day of the week.
Apart from Sundays.
Day of rest and all that.
