Clifton Hill Costume and Textiles is an antique and vintage costumier and haberdashery suppliers, re-opened after the owner and founder Gillian Hodder passed away early in 2011. After extensive refurbishment of the building, and the long, but amazing experience of sorting through her vast-30 year-collection, the shop opened to the public in early spring 2013.
Boasting an impressive hoard of vintage treasures, costume and textiles, and haberdashery including: Buttons, Buckles, Sewing aids, Hats & Hat Decorations, Trim, Gloves, Costume Jewellery and many more rare and fashionable curios, you are guaranteed to find something unique.
From stunning examples of lace dresses from the turn of the Twentieth Century, weighty sections of beaded dresses rescued from the 20’s, a hoard of trims, patches and lace of all kinds; if you are looking for inspiration or pieces for customising your outfit, come and spend an afternoon immersing yourself in this Aladdin’s cave! We also stock wedding dresses and two piece outfits ready to wear or for alteration (as each item is a one off), evening dresses, nightwear and accessories including new, handmade items from vintage stock by a handpicked selection of designers.
If you are looking for something specific for your special occasion that you are struggling to find locally or online, email email@example.com or visit the shop to browse the fascinating collection.
