About Us
First things first...

Our collection derives from our belief in three principles:

1. The Meaning of Style

Style means wearing a frock that will look just as superb in 10 or 20 years time as it does now.

You are what you wear - we help you to showcase your unique style with our beautiful retro and vintage designs.

Our designs are timeless and can be worn through all seasons.

2. The Real Thing

For the real thing, we get back to basics :

We make frocks and skirts individually, the way they used to be - not mass produced on a factory production line.

Accordingly, we have chosen models and buyers who genuinely love our dresses and who are proud to show our designs in a variety of normal everyday (and evening) settings.

3. Individual Attention

We want to allow you, the customer, to select what is best for you both in style and fabric.

So we don't stock frocks in different sizes or different fabrics. Instead we have it made to your order - customized just for you.

The result is a frock that will suit you perfectly because it was made especially for you and not just sold to you.

One Size does NOT Fit All!

The Three Ps
The Premises

We are based near Basel in North West Switzerland, an area known as the Three Country Corner due to its borders with France (Alsace) and Germany (Black Forest).

Currently the business is Internet-based only, but you are welcome to visit if you want to discuss a frock or see the fabrics first hand.

The Products

The frocks and skirts are made from cotton or silk only, and using haute-couture techniques.

  • They are fully lined either in contrasting or complementary colours.
  • They are finished by hand.
  • Each fabric has been selected by Lis personally for its special or interesting qualities.
  • Every frock is made with details that make it unique.

The Promise
  • We will go the extra mile to give you a quality product and service.
  • Your feedback will be both listened to, and acted upon.
