Every time I see Mary from Allium B she’s wearing another gorgeous grown-up dress. One of the perks of running your own fashion label is that you get to wear the product – and model it for That’s Not My Age. Here’s Mary wearing her current favourite, the Helena dress (above), which comes in viscose georgette and features embroidery inspired by a fragment of French fabric found at Portobello market. And here are some highlights from the autumn collection, which is lovely. I know, because I’ve seen Mary wearing most of it. 

Allium B was set up by Mary and her sister Clare just over two years ago, when they couldn’t find suitable dresses on the high street. With
plenty of fashion industry experience and a penchant for vintage-inspired
frocks, the Brighton-based duo have come up with a winning formula. ‘We
provide a tightly edited collection of beautifully detailed dresses,
designed to be worn and loved for more than one season,’ Mary tells me,
‘We call it slow(er) fashion. We love sleeves and side pockets and
hunting through vintage fairs to find an old piece of beading or
embroidery to bring back to life in a new design.’

Already reasonably priced, these gorgeous grown-up dresses are even more of a deal with That’s Not My Age discount. Just type in the code TNMA for 20% off the autumn/winter range. And if you live in Brighton there’s a sample sale this Saturday. I’m spoiling you now…

  1. The mind is a great philosopher. And life is not a philosophy, life is a reality. And philosophy is an escape from reality; philosophy means thinking. Life is, there is no question of thought. You can simply jump into it. You can simply experience it. Visit my site for more information.Thank you.
