About the company

I never lived in the modern day! As a child I loved watching old movies and the ‘pretty ladies’ of the silver screen and as a teenager I was drawn to the fashions and culture of the 50s. Told I would ‘grow out of it’, this was never to be, moving even further away from the modern world as I later discovered the glamour of the 1940s. Then I met my alter ego Miss Bamboo....

Miss Bamboo lives and breathes the 30s, 40s and 50s and her online boutique represents her particular love of glamorous American and Pacific fashions.
Miss Bamboo takes you on a journey across the Pacific, from America, down to Mexico, Hawaii and the Asian Pacific Coast, bringing you the best quality 1930s/40s/50s reproduction clothing.

The 'Miss Bamboo' label is proudly made in limited edition numbers in the UK, giving you quality at affordable prices. Miss Bamboo is also pleased to bring you select quality designer brands including Trashy Diva from the USA and is a UK official stockist of Emmy Design from Sweden. We sometimes offer select pieces from lower price ranges such as Hell Bunny to offer our customers a choice of price points to suit the individual pocket.
On these pages you will find a wide range of beautiful vintage style and reproduction vintage dresses and separates for vintage glamour without the rationing! Miss Bamboo also stocks a range of accessories such as fans and bamboo parasols.

Think World War II, GIs and servicemen at your beck and call, (I have my own GI, Preston, aka Big Bamboo, who still requires a little more training!) Tropical, Tiki, Mexican and Exotic South Asian Pin Ups. Holidaying in the Pacific in the golden age of travel. Hawaiian and Tiki nights at your 40s and rockabilly weekenders.

I hope you too, will love Miss Bamboo!
