Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Beautiful in Blue at the Glamour Awards, in a Mishka Vintage sourced dress. Altered into a new classic.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor on the Glamour Awards Red Carpet 2014 in Mishka Vintage – altered beauty dress.


I have long loved this 1960’s blue brocade dress at Mishka, and wondered why no-one else has snapped it up. When I took Sophie there for a shopping fest, post-lunch date last week, I was therefore delighted that she saw it’s beauty too.
She had it shortened, with it’s straps removed by a local tailor, I think it looks heavenly and hope that you like it too…
I wish more people realised that a lovely piece of clothing with potential can be easily altered into something remarkable by a local tailor. My tailor Chris is a legend, often fixing clothes for me, Kentish Town locals and the cast of West End musicals with brilliant skill. But that’s another post in the making!..
