Glory Days : YORK

Vintage Gems and Made-to-measure Creations ...

Glory Days Vintage offers a wide range of vintage clothing and accessories from all eras of the 20th Century - come and explore our shop to find vintage treasures from 60s psychedelic minis and 50s prom dresses, to 30s jewellery and 70s chiffon wonders! Behind the vintage shop you'll find our bridal boutique where you'll find the wedding dress of your dreams.

We offer a wide range of original vintage gowns ranging in age from 30 to 80 years old. In your private appointment you can try on any dress you desire and peruse our library of books and style guides for ideas on which period dress would suit your personality and figure, and inspiration for your hair, make-up and accessories. We offer an in house alterations service so we can alter our dresses to fit you perfectly, or gently bring your vintage dress in line with a more modern aesthetic by lowering necklines or shortening hems, removing sleeves or nipping in the waist. We can add hand-beading and embroidery, Swarovski crystals or vintage lace to help create your dream dress and achieve the perfect look for your wedding day!

Alongside our range of vintage dresses we offer a bespoke dressmaking service which means we can replicate any vintage dress made to measure in your size. Our couture creations can be entirely designed by you or by us, or they can simply be a direct copy of a dress you have fallen in love with. We can create a replica of any dress you desire, whether it is a dress from a 50s movie or a 30s magazine, a Keira Knightley “Atonement” dress, a Dita Von Teese 40s-inspired number or a Grace Kelly wedding gown.

Glory Days was founded by Hayley Claire Neil - dressmaker, costume designer and vintage devotee. Having developed a passion for fashion history and design at an early age, Hayley studied costume design at degree level and went on to work as a freelance costume designer, maker and assistant in the realms of theatre and film. Gaining experience with respected companies such as the West Yorkshire Playhouse, Trafalgar Studios, Channel 4, Warp Films, and the BBC, Hayley has been lucky enough to have worked on productions like Othello (starring Lenny Henry), the 2009 Pussycat Dolls tour, This Is England ‘86, and Bifa, Bafta, and Oscar winning films Kill List, Tyrannosaur, and The King’s Speech.
