Worn by the likes of Miranda Kerr, Darcey Bussell and the Middleton sisters, Tabitha Webb has carved a niche in fitted, flattering dresses with timeless appeal. Her first retail premises on Elizabeth Street showcases designs from her retro inspired autumn-winter ready-to-wear collection – think reworked paisley prints and Sixties shift shapes. With prices starting around the £375 mark, Tabitha’s designs don’t come cheap – but just remind yourself that you’ll probably be wearing her wardrobe staples for years to come.
A stone’s throw from the commuter hub of Victoria station, the store couldn’t feel further from the hustle and bustle: a row of independent stores and boutiques, Elizabeth Street has an almost village-like feel, which is part of it’s appeal for Tabitha. Keen to engage with customers, she’s put on a programme of events, with each month taking a different theme. Everything from fashion and theatre to literature and dance will be covered, with full listings available online.
What gives the store its edge is the alteration and made to measure services. Tried on a dress but not a fan of the hem length? A bit worried about a neckline? Everything can be tweaked in store, with a surprisingly quick turnaround – you don’t get this with fast fashion. Or, if you’ve spotted the perfect shape in the shop window, but want a different fabric or print, simply book an appointment to discuss making your dream dress a reality.
