About The Silk Slipper
Our Service PledgeWe respond to all orders within 24 hours, we guarantee the authenticity of all our items.
About UsI went to my first jumble sale at the age of 6 and have always been passionate about collecting textiles, antiques and art whilst indulging my other passion which is flea markets. My house is bursting with things I have collected over the years and with my interest in photography the idea of opening an online shop seemed a good way of combining a lot of interests at once and keeping a souvenir of everything I pass on.
I have worked for the last 30 years as a fashion stylist, including 5 years at Vogue in Paris. During my career I enjoyed working with many photographers including Helmut Newton and Richard Avedon.
I have two diplomas; one in shoe design and leather technology from Cordwainers college, and another in Costume design from the London College of Fashion.
I now live in a tiny village in the Gers region of South West France where my partner and I enjoy foraging for treasures every weekend whether that be flea markets or auctions. I am delighted to share my finds and collections with you here in my shop.
Everything I send out will be something I treasure and wrapped carefully. My aim is not just to sell things but to create a whole experience. One client said it was like receiving a package from a dear friend, which is a lovely way of putting it.
Thanks for looking, Philippa
