In October 2009, Liz Houghton, Lisa Agar-Rea and Jane Rawlings focused their passion and created Mint Velvet. These three women had spent 15 years helping to shape women’s fashion on the high street, and found a gap in the market for affordable modern clothes that reflected their lifestyles, which they hoped to fulfil. They have already been recognised by various magazines and About your Dress thinks they will just get even bigger this year.
Their brand combines modern silhouettes with luxury fabrics, and stylish basics with bespoke prints, to create pieces that are can easily be transferred into different looks. Mint Velvet’s boutique style approach sets them apart from the high street, as they offer a personalised shopping experience, with style advice and sales assistance, both in-store and online.
