Happy New Year to all our customers! 2014 was a fantastic year for us: we were nominated as one of the Sunday Telegraph Stella Magazine's top 50 online fashion boutiques in the UK, had our TV debut on Channel 4's This Old Thing and a customer found her way onto best-dressed list at Ascot:

There are going to be some changes to Juno Says Hello in 2015 - here's the scoop: the e-boutique will go offline between the months of April and November and our Ladbroke Grove showroom will close its doors at the end of March. There will be a grand reopening towards the end of the year in a new location - stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, there is a 30% discount on all stock purchased in-studio between now and Friday 27th March. To make an appointment please get in touch via this link - we are open early evenings as well as weekends. Click here to browse online.
30% off this dress and all stock!
The reason I am taking the store offline for a few months is because I am in the final furlongs of a PhD and this summer will be spent tapping away at a keyboard in an attempt to finish my thesis. Although Juno Says Hello will not be trading, I will continue to write a monthly online column on vintage fashion for the FT's How to Spend It, as well as the occasional blog on here.
The Juno Says Hello Twitter and Facebook accounts will still be active and I will be posting sneak previews of new stock which will go online when the website relaunches in November. I am delighted to have been asked to speak about Juno Says Hello at the UK's biggest fashion trade show Pure in February and will be joining the judging panel for the Online Retail Awards in September.

For the last two years I've also been working on an exciting new project: creating a unique scent that will be launching soon. From its inception in 2012, I've been fortunate enough to work with some of the most talented people in the fragrance industry and it has been hugely inspiring to see how they have interpreted my ideas and designs into a beautiful and contemporary Eau de Parfum. The scent will launch later this year - please follow me here for more details about its creation, stockists and related events. There is a wonderful (and slightly crazy) story behind its genesis which I look forward to sharing with you.
Happy New Year x
