My Story

Patchouli Fair

Established 2006


Calling all free spirits, festival goers, boho fashionistas, rock chicks & lovers of vintage inspired fashion!

I’d like to introduce myself, a true British Bohemian & founder of Patchouli Fair…

After many years of wonderful adventures on my nomadic & gypsy travels I decided to don my backpack once again & see what Mother India had to offer. From dancing in Spain to body piercing in England, from hostessing for Marco Pierre White to creating the tribute band Fleetwood Bac & floating around as Stevie Nicks, I was ready for another adventure. I fell in love with India & it’s remarkable people, who I now have the pleasure of working alongside.

Together with my amazing artisans we produce pretty floral prints on hand block printed & screen printed cotton which we then transform into timeless, romantic fashion & accessories. From a Victorian circus, poppy filled meadow & hand painted caravan to a wild chaotic Indian festival, all of these things inspire my love of colour which you will find in our unique collection. Our delicious dresses are not only for the Summer but can be teamed with chunky knits & boots in the colder months to create a true boho look.

We combine a free spirited vision with an ethical & sustainable ethos & are a strong contender in this niche market. Using a visionary & transparent approach we ensure that our cumulative effect on the people we work with is overwhelmingly positive, as we continue to create job opportunities for disadvantaged workers.  In a world full of cheap labour & environmentally disastrous manufacturing techniques, we are active in making a positive change in the world.

My dresses have even been seen on Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me where I went on to win the £1000 price!

Follow your Dreams
