Queens of archive is an independent brand run by women, for women. Born from vintage influence and female empowerment we create timeless, feminine, easy-to-wear dresses inspired by a bygone era.
We keep our styles current, using bespoke prints and fabrications sourced and designed in-house. We are a big believer in slowing things down. Queens of archive dresses are produced in exclusive, limited runs. We limit our footprint by working to pre-order driven production, constantly working towards our zero waste goals throughout our business.
We understand the importance of sustainability for the Queens who wear them. We seek alternatives to a traditional fashion business model, using only plant-based luxe fabrications.
We love the hybrid culture of our brand, fusing our three passions of fashion, music and creative storytelling to bring a layered, more considered product. We aim to bring something different to the table of a sometimes indistinguishable fashion landscape.
We pay homage to the Queens of yesteryear who paved the way for us all by naming our dresses after them, proving that any woman can not only be interested in fashion and style but also ooze intelligence, embody strength and be a legendary trailblazer. They can be rock ‘n’ roll & hedonistic but still be able to speak five languages, chair a meeting & be the CEO of a company.
Our dresses are individual, limited, tell a story and embody the Queens who wear them.
We're proud to present to you our debut collection, 'Sunday Morning'.
