Grand Madame Herself

Hidden in a little laneway in the heart of Melbourne, lies a beautiful grand madame and what a grand lady she is! I am talking about the one and only Madame Virtue & Co, located in Crossley Street. Owners Dean Hewitt and JC Lloyd-Southwell d'Anvers, and their beloved Shar-Pei pooch, Maude, bring you the very best of vintage and haute couture from around the world.




Upon entering, you will see walls lined with rack upon rack of one-off couture pieces and high-end vintage gowns. From  Lanvin through to Chanel, there's is something for everyone. 






While speaking to Dean, I discovered the philosphy behind Madame Virtue. Madame Virtue is all about empowering their clients. Admittedly, if I were to wear any of their couture or vintage gowns, I would feel very empowered indeed!

Along with gowns galore, Madame Virtue stocks a range of vintage scarves, such as Hermes and Celine, earrings and necklaces and not forgetting Chanel handbags, my absolute favourite!

Now is the perfect time to visit this grand madame as they are having a major VIP sale (appointment only). Madame Virtue are offering 30 % off all CHANEL and other luxury brands , sale racks $100 off all top international designs , archive /vintage / Madame Virtue samples, as well as some menswear.  Contact Dean (see details below) to arrange your appointment today!

Yours in style,
