What is a Dress Agency?
Stylist Sally Ormsby, owned of The Dresser dress agency, has been advising London’s fashionistas on how to turn their fashion samples and last year’s designs into cash. Dress agencies specialise in the buying and selling of second hand couture and contemporary designer brands and this includes an extensive range of pre-owned fashion items – coats and suits, dresses and eveningwear, there are also shoes and bags, beautiful belts and even sunglasses. These are then sold to the public at a fraction of the original price.
The Dresser is centrally located, in the chic Connaught Village shopping district (near Marble Arch) and has been operating since 1986 – so Sally really knows what sells and what to expect pricewise and has built up a loyal following over the years. Fashion stylists, editors and even some well known celebrities use The Dresser to sell their quality designer clothes and fashion accessories on a 50/50 sale or return basis.
Accepting only the best quality, these pre-owned designer clothes are mainly from the top fashion labels – Dolce & Gabanna, Gucci, Comme des Garcons, Chanel, Chloe and Matthew Williamson to name just a few – and unusually, The Dresser also stocks a great collection of menswear.
