Birds Dress Agency is way over a hundred years old and is ooh ten minutes walk from where my Aunt Kit lived (Mrs Antil being Aunt Kit’s neighbour at the time) in Brockley Cross and it is a wonderful place to go to….I don’t even dare you to not like it..it’s just so lovely! Just go there and be happy. Look in awe at the vanity cases, frocks, slacks, caps and everything else.
The Chap magazine has this to say about it and I whole heartedly agree:
“BIRDS DRESS AGENCY. As old as the hills of this forgotten southeast London suburb, but surprisingly worth the trip, which one can combine with an educational trip to the Horniman Museum. The clothes are for both sexes, and are as musty and redolent of a more agreeable era as one would wish. 251-253 Malpas Road, London SE4 Tel 020 8692 0333”
