Girls, you shall go to the ball! The full Pretty Woman treatment is on offer (but without the 80s consumerism) at Conscious Closet’s occasion wear and prom dress pop-up shop in Southwell.

Set up by style mavens Sarah Rockley and Lisa Holland, two friends who love fashion but loathe waste, the shop offers two-hour prom dress appointments to help girls find their dream dress. The two mums have been high-flyers in the fashion industry all their careers and it shows. Not only do they have an expertly curated collection of beautiful dresses in sizes 6-16 to suit all tastes and budgets, including rental and pre-loved options, but they know what works and are styling wizards.

But it’s not just the teen prom queens who have them on speed-dial. The stylish duo can also help find the perfect pre-loved, rental or (whisper it) new gown for that cruise, ball or wow wedding outfit.

Feel like you never have anything to wear? Most of us wear 20% of our wardrobe 80% of the time. Before you go on that shopping spree, book Conscious Closet for a Wardrobe Edit. They’ll give your whole wardrobe an overhaul and help breathe new life into the fashion you already own (as well as help you let go of what definitely isn’t working – so long two-sizes-too-small skinny jeans). They will organise, declutter, style and advise on the ideal capsule wardrobe to suit your lifestyle.

The pair have also designed and made their own line of stunning satin, wear-with-anything evening dresses, along with beautiful beaded boleros. No wasted fabric and made to order. And their eco-conscious fashion passion doesn’t end there. They also run ad hoc swishing events (aka clothes swaps) so you can find a whole new look without the environmental or financial guilt. In short, these down-to-earth, super-stylish women aim to give you the tools and know-how to nail a stylish wardrobe through renting, swapping, mending, editing and styling.
