Vintage dress hunting: The Cat’s Meow

I have long been a fan of Rebecca Denholm and her vintage studio The Cat’s Meow - having spotted her gorgeous wares at various vintage fashion fairs over the years.  She has a loyal following of designers and vintage collectors for her fantastic eye and reputation for quality antique clothing and hard-to-find pieces.
Up until recently, she was based in Glasgow spending much of her time on the road - but she recently relocated to a suitably evocative space in west London (close to her regular haunt Portobello). Here, she offers an appointment-only service, where you can rifle through her collection of elegant vintage gowns, marabou shrugs, 60s swimsuits, deco clutches and delicate 50s heels


  1. Wow - I had never heard of her but her shop looks stunning. Thanks for showing us these fab pictures./

  2. I don't know much about her but by seeing these pictures I like her work.Specially the golden dress with beads embroidery and simple brown dress and black shoes.I like her stuff.Surely try to visit her place.

  3. Rebecca is great! We had a striking fifties theme wedding here in Tuscany thanks to one of her gowns…
