Retro has been trading for almost 35 years. The store’s owner, Anne Marie, saw a niche in the market for a vintage clothing store in Dublin city and soon opened Retro‘s doors in George’s Street Arcade. The boutique caters to sizes 8 to 22 and specialises in the reproduction of vintage 1940’s and 1950’s dresses, all of which are cut from original patterns. Retro is also celebrity hot-spot, with celebs such as Blondie, Noel Fielding, Lana Del Rey having bought from the boutique’s rails. The queen of vintage, Imelda May, is also a regular customer in the vintage boutique.
