Gently Worn Vintage

Gently Worn Vintage is an online boutique which has grown from a long love affair with the elegance and glamour of earlier decades.

Each piece in the carefully curated Gently Worn Vintage collection is individually sourced from around the world, chosen for their timelessness and beauty.

Specialists in couture and handmade individual pieces of true quality; beautiful fabrics, detailing and embellishments are a signature of the Gently Worn Vintage collection. GWV's archive of special pieces showcases some of the rare, precious gems from the 1920s, 30s, 50s and 60s which have graced the boutique's rails...

'I was shopping at the Clerkenwell Vintage fashion fair for a 50's wedding dress when I spotted a stunning floor length 40's dress that was in beautiful condition... What was really great when buying this dress from Gently Worn Vintage was Carole's enthusiasm to see this dress fit the right figure, and, with some slight alterations to the hem length and the width of the arm seams, the dress was perfected for me.'

 'Not only do I have to thank GWV for having the dress in the first place, but also for the fact that it arrived so promptly and in such beautiful condition that I could have just walked off the boulevard with my shopping bag some 65 years ago!'

The Gently Worn blog is testament to the boutique's dedication to and passion for timeless style. 

In November 2014 Gently Worn will launch a new collection of vintage inspired couture gowns and dresses inspired by fabulously classic pieces from their archives under the Gently Inspired label. The Gently Inspired collection is created with the finest European silks utilising couture techniques of the past and genuine vintage embellishments. Their one off bespoke, timeless pieces are handmade in London by a carefully selected skilled team of local artisans.
