Founded in 2017 in Brighton, What They Wore Store is a family-run, concept vintage store. It’s not our first foray into the world of vintage clothing, we previously ran a retro kids clothing shop both online + offline. After finding it impossible to leave behind the grown-up stuff that we’d come across on our buying trips, we decided to branch out into adults wear too.
With a firm interest in art, design + fashion, and a background in communications + marketing, opening a concept vintage shop seemed like the natural thing to do. Our vision is to offer fun, gender neutral, bright pieces for both kids + adults. We don’t think anyone should be pigeon-holed by gender or age, we believe folks should wear what they want to wear.
What They Wore Store is passionate about repurposing + recycling clothing too. UK textile waste is a huge problem and has a massive impact on the environment so we want to do our bit by reusing garments to prevent them from ending up at a landfill site.
