A new designer dress agency boutique will be opening at 48 The Pantiles at the end of March.
La Maison is a dress agency where you will be able to buy and sell high-end designer clothes and accessories at affordable prices – including dresses for every occasion, handbags, shoes, hats and jewellery.
The store will be La Maison’s sixth to open – there are already three very successful stores in Rye selling ladies, men’s and children’s designer clothes with other shops in Hythe and in Woodstock, Oxfordshire.
Owner Susannah Swann is coming back to the town where she spent much of her childhood, growing up at the family farm in Southborough.
She said: “We are very excited about opening our sixth store, particularly in The Pantiles, which is so busy and buzzy and has so many great restaurants and bars.
“We actually looked at opening in Chelsea, but in the end we decided on Tunbridge Wells because the town is so vibrant and has a certain style of shops.”
La Maison will focusÂ on selling pre-lovedÂ items from all kindsÂ of designers,Â thoughÂ Susannah saysÂ favourites withÂ her regularÂ customersÂ include clothesÂ by Ralph Lauren,Â Boden and KarenÂ Millen, as well asÂ Mulberry handbags.
There is also a heavyÂ focus on fur, which is veryÂ popular, as well as cashmere,Â leather and suede.
The new shop will also includeÂ a small selection of men’s clothingÂ and antiques.
Susannah said: “All ladies loveÂ hunting for a bargain and somethingÂ different and it enables them toÂ change and update their wardrobeÂ regularly at a fraction of the price forÂ designer items.”
The agency will be open Tuesdays toÂ Sundays (closed Mondays) from AprilÂ and are looking to recruit dedicatedÂ local part-time staff. If this would beÂ of interest please email your details toÂ Susannah at email@example.com
