Definitely the place to go for informed advice on retro styling for both males and females. I found the staff keen to help and assist me in finding the look I wanted and took the time to listen. Special thanks to Rowena for helping me to understand differences in styles, materials, fit and comfort that's very relevant to swing dancers.

The only bad thing about this place is that it's impossible not to go there...even when I have no money.

Revival Retro is a special place! The pieces that I have bought, which now make up most of my wardrobe, make me feel sexy, feminine and wonderful. Sarah and Rowena always manage to make any woman who walks into the shop feel like they are a beautiful Hollywood Star. They take their time to advise every individual and cater to their needs. I can tell that they love the shop, their job and their customers. I have been kitted out for many a wedding there and have felt fabulous and comfortable. The clothes maybe modelled on 40s and 50s style but I never feel like I am wearing a costume. Shopping at Revival Retro is an experience, and you may also end up making friends there!

Vintage style without the mothballs. What makes Revival Retro stand out is the quality of its selection and the store manager Sarah's excellent unobtrusive advice. That made us into repeat customers - and we're coming all the way from Switzerland.

The owner has such impeccable taste and the collection in-store is so well curated, meaning unfortunately every time I visit, I want absolutely every item in the shop! For London's vintage lovers Revival is a permanent go-to, but I've also sent friends there to shop for balls, weddings, first dates... The accessories section is stunning too, I've bought jewellery for my mum there quite a few times. Such sweet service, relaxed ambience, and they wrap up your purchases so nicely! A beautiful shopping experience from start to end.

Revival Retro have just the right touch! Very friendly and knowledgable staff that are truly devoted to their work. They have the most adorable range of shoes too, think they are the only retailers in Europe of some of the brands. This is for sure a place for unique wonders!

A lovely boutique selling quality reproduction vintage clothing, shoes & accesories. The best place in London for the 1940s gal who love to swing dance or just look glamourous. The staff at super friendly, attentive, polite & know they stuff. A rarity these days in London

Emma S

Revival Retro is a unique store, handled with so much passion and love for the past decades. One always feels welcome and the shop ladies are truly lovely.

Angela D

Fabulous, stylish dresses and shoes! Gorgeous, flattering and amazing quality- I was spoilt for choice! Really friendly and helpful staff- they knew exactly what would look great on me. I bought my dresses for dancing but they're lovely for any occasion. Would highly recommend this shop!


Enjoy the Rolls Royce service from these fabulous ladies. If you just have to wear gorgeous shoes by Chie Mihara, as an exclusive supplier they can source your size and style. A truly inspired boutique, you will literally find a walk-in wardrobe from dresses to jewellery, elegant hats, silk scarves and shoes.

Fiona W

The friendliest service and ongoing communication from a store I love. Great clothing and accessories. I want it all!

Nancy H

Awesome service, awesome people and awesome goods - what more can you ask for.


The most welcoming shopping experience. From being able to remember you from 18 months since the last visit, to having clothes that fit and flatter, everything you want from a boutique. xx

Revival Retro not only provide the most amazing retro-inspired clothes, they're also incredibly knowledgeable, body-positive and customer-focused. They don't follow fashion trends or let fickle tropes dictate their look books. Upon entering the shop, you will most likely be asked what type of look you're going for, shown to a dressing room, and Shop Manager Sarah will proceed to bring you ALL OF THE CLOTHES. Multiple outfits will materialise. You will leave with all of them. Solid 5 stars.

Rebecca N

Amazing customer service and clothes for every shape of person - highly recommended!

Rachel M

Hands down, this is my favorite shop in London! Fabulous clothes, wonderfully friendly staff, and a convenient location. What's not to love?

Amanda S

Fabulous clothes, shoes and accessories, plus a friendly and knowledgeable crew to help you get the most out of your visit. My bank manager probably hates them but I always find something new and gorgeous to lust after every time I go.

Laura L

A great shop and the best staff, with an uncanny ability to find *just* the right dress. 

Jayne T

Just a fabulous little shop......A must for every girl wanting something that makes them feel special.

Sky O

The combination of quality of products, attentiveness of the staff, and their ability to give you ideas for the right fit makes this a gem of a store, not just for those of us that love the period styles and dancing but for those wanting to explore and understand.

Check it out, ask questions, you may be surprised. I don't always find what I am looking for, I do enjoy each experience.

Lady Lynne F
