Kate’s Collection opened in March 2017 following on from the retirement of Judy French. Kate and her team all worked in the Judy French boutique. However Kate started her retail career at Selfridges many years ago! She was a Fashion Buyer for Selfridges and also for Bentalls but left to enjoy her family commitments. At this time she began working from home as a Miss Captain sales consultant for over 10 years.
Kate’s Collection is an eclectic mix of wearable clothing aimed at stylish women of all ages. There is a selection of gorgeous and unusual designs, which can be purchased as one off pieces or mixed with other favourites to create lovely outfits. Kate only buys from small designers and ateliers, from all around the globe. Because of this exclusivity, the production quantities are very small, so you will not find these wonderful clothes on the high street. You can see our current brand names here.
Most of our Spring collections have already arrived and the boutique will be topped up with high summer and holiday collections later in the year. We have occasion wear collections from Alquema, Latte and Grizas; versatile dresses and some quirky one off pieces from Vetono, Ralston and Alembika. Capri, Foil and Milano represent our more casual collections. Trousers, in various lengths and fabrics, super comfortable jeans are provided by provided primarily from Mac and Simclan throughout the season. Many of our collections use natural fabrics, in particular cottons, textured linen and silk mixes, and merino wool. Designs are sophisticated, but still comfortable. A selection of contemporary or more traditional jewellery can be found to accessorise your wardrobe.
Most of our brands are stocked in sizes 8-18. Whether you are looking for a stylish occasion outfit for a special event or for a more casual look, you are sure to find something. Please come and view the new Autumn ranges. Kate, and her team, Julie and Bridget, are always pleased to help you find one item or several outfits that suit your lifestyle. Our aim is to provide a personal and friendly service which could not be found in a larger store and for you to feel confident in your clothes.
Opening Hours: Mon – Sat 10am – 5pm
