Time Out says

Used as an expert voice on all things style, from wearing vintage with panache to dressing for the Oscars, former interior designer William Banks-Blaney is in demand. His advice comes by appointment only at this Marylebone boutique - a space he opened in November 2010 after his monthly fashion fairs became wildly over subscribed - and the two-floor store is a Mecca for haute couture lovers. Banks-Blaney spends most of his time travelling the world sourcing timeless design pieces (which he then restores to immaculate condition) and his carefully edited stock features a discerning selection of vintage Ossie Clark, Jean Varon, Jean Dessès, Chrisitian Dior and Balenciaga among others. An appointment will bag you a free run of the collection and the founder's own styling services.
