With the opening of a brand new cafe in April and several new dealers moving in, there are a lot of changes going on in Alfies. Last week Velvet Atelier opened a new shop on the ground floor. In this wonderful vintage treasure trove you will find the most stunning vintage dresses from the Victorian Era to the 1970s and a nice collection of shoes, bags and hats. Don't forget to have a look at their designer stock, including Vivienne Westwood, Dior, Armani and Alexander McQueen.
