La Dame’s mission is to bring ethically made, feminine, and retro-style fashion to everyone. Elevate your daily wardrobes with ease and elegance.
La Dame is a women-owned business, and our mission is to deliver vintage clothing for women around the globe. We design our products with utmost care and precision, trying to bring out the classic retro vibes of the 1920s and 1930s through the 1950s and 1970s.
We firmly believe you can create your unique fashion statement in every situation. La Dame releases a variety of vintage-inspired dresses that include special event retro dresses, party dresses, or retro wedding guest dresses. You can complete all clothing collections with matching accessories like cat-eye sunglasses or a classic pearl necklace.
We create pieces of luxury for women who seek vintage elegance and sophistication in their outfits. La Dame believes in timeless clothes that celebrate the feminine figure and will still be stylish long after the season is over.
We release a new vintage garment in small quantities. Only after the item gets a broader appeal do we manufacture more. This helps us reduce waste and build a responsible manufacturing company.
Every idea begins with a reflection on the iconic fashion item from the retro looks of classic beauties who revolutionized the styles of their decade. In search of a perfect vintage dress, we thoroughly research every idea to ensure the finest cut that fits and the highest quality that delights.
From the beginning, we’ve been focused on establishing the production system on fairness and trust. We create our vintage clothes in Europe in an ethical workplace. Partnering with local seamstresses, we use eco-friendly fabrics such as organic cotton, linen, or recycled polyester. Each piece of clothing is quality-made, and we take care of the production process from ideation to shipment.
How La Dame Began
Ever since they were little girls, sisters Ela and Kate were fascinated by the fashion icons of Old Hollywood. They would spend hours watching movies starring Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, or Marylin Monroe. Going through dog-eared magazines, the sisters soaked up Princess Diana’s iconic looks. Their passion and fascination with timeless garments worn by indisputable legends continued into adulthood.
La Dame started from that deep love of fashion and film. Inspired by Old Hollywood glamour, Ela and Kate launched an Instagram account to bring back the memory of the most iconic fashion items in history. But as the years went by, they struggled to find high-quality yet affordable vintage-style clothing. The decision was made. Ela and Kate would work with tailors and create their own designs.
Driven by the timeless outfits worn by Jackie Kennedy or Brigitte Bardot, the sisters pursue classic dresses that never go out of style. What was initially a hobby soon expanded into a rapidly growing vintage clothing brand.
