Vintage obsessions: Rhona Roy





Surprisingly (some may say) beyond Horrockses there are a few other labels I am really interested in, and that I get very excited over when I come across.

I am going to try and do an individual blog post about each of my “big labels” T o show off some of the fantastic examples I have found here there and everywhere!

Rhona Roy

A label I have managed to find very little information on, but the brand did produce a lot of beautiful cotton dresses in a similar vein to Horrockses, right through the 50’s. I have seen the Rhona Roy label appear as late as the 1970s. There was a main line labelled simply “Rhona Roy” and a line for the younger teenage girl called young ideas by Rhona Roy.

This example comes from the Hampshire museum service collection and is truly a head turner (one of those rarities that has its original bolero too!) The minty colour is so perfectly summery too. Mmmmm making me think about pistachio ice cream. It dates from c1955-59
HMCMS:C2003.75

The company was also one of the numerous labels that Pattie Boyd modelled for.

  1. To fix them, soak a cotton ball in lemon juice and wipe it
    over the streaks to pretty much erase them. In our
    estimation, if you can see the benefits of pursuing public relations, there is no reason not to
    use the best law firm public relations firm out there.
    We’re human, and accidents happen, which is why
    it’s important to have a few simple tricks up your sleeve to make your tanning accidents fade
    away leaving you looking worthy of a St.

  2. In the league of hair care products, its risk free trial and consumer testimonials are the talk of the town. During the treatment, the area
    is protected by using a dynamic cooling device that spreads cryogen onto the skin to cool
    the upper layer and facilitates you maximum comfort. While you’re trying
    to restore your tresses, try to avoid them.

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
