Always read the care label before washing to ensure your new garment looks perfect every time you wear it.
Machine wash at 30° (unless otherwise stated) taking care to turn your item inside out before washing, this will prevent damage to the prints and any embellishment or diamantes.
You can wash at a lower temperature but do not exceed the temperature limit!
Wash with similar colours.
Do not use detergent which contains bleach.
Please be aware that delicate treatments or prints e.g. Glitter/foil prints, may lose some colour or finish with washing, this is to be expected and just helps to add to the vintage design of your garment.
Do not tumble dry garments unless it is indicated on the care label that it is safe to do so.
Iron your item inside out using a very low temperature, taking care to avoid any printed/embellished areas.
Please note, the majority of our clothes are either Screen Printed or Transfer Printed. Both prints are intended to develop more character as they survive endless wear and tear. The ink on a screen printed garment is printed deep into the grain of the fabric so your item will age gracefully over time whereas a transfer print will gradually fade and crack with wear. This is entirely normal and just helps add to the vintage nature of your garment.
A lot of our garments are treated with vintage washes and so variations in shading and texture are to be expected. This just adds to the uniqueness of your item as no two will be exactly the same and is in no way to be considered defective.

Formed in 1970, Roger Taylor once said ‘when Queen do something, they do it BIG’. Perhaps the most famous Queen association is flamboyant frontman Freddie Mercury, an exquisitely gifted, almost operatic musician, lyricist and stage presence. He has, at one stage or another been voted the greatest rock singer of all time, one of rock’s greatest all-time entertainers and one of the greatest voices in all of music.
The band forged a reputation through the 70s and 80s as world-class live performers and their output, from their first eponymously-named album through to Queen II in 1974, A Night at the Opera (1975), A Day at the Races (1976) and News of the World (1977) spawned worldwide hit after worldwide hit.
They played in front of 200,000 in Hyde Park, 325,000 in Rio and in front of an audience of over a billion at Live Aid, a performance in the summer of 1985 which was voted ‘The Greatest Live Performance Ever’ in a BBC poll.
A Kind of Magic was released in 1986 and prompted a colossal stadium tour. Their final live concert came on the 9th August that year at Knebworth Park. By 1988, Queen stopped touring and focused their attention on studio work which still sold by the multi-million.
Around this time, rumours were flying around that Freddie Mercury was ill. The hearsay and conjecture were consistently denied but on the 23rd November 1991, he released a statement to the public saying he had AIDS. He died the next day.
Queen’s legacy will live on and on and the numbers back that up – 18 #1 albums; 18 #1 singles; 250-300m albums sold worldwide; 1,322 weeks (26 years) on the UK album chart. They are (arguably) the greatest British band of all time, Bohemian Rhapsody was voted the UKs favourite song ever (with We Are the Champions voted as the world’s favourite song) and in the real test of popularity, they are the most bootlegged band ever.
Freddie Mercury was born in Zanzibar. His real name is Farrokh Bulsara but his passport read Frederick Mercury.
The video for We Will Rock You was shot in Roger Taylor’s garden.
The Official International Queen Fan Club is the longest running rock group fan club in the world.
Queen only released Another One Bites the Dust because Michael Jackson encouraged them to.
Queen’s collaboration with David Bowie on Under Pressure wasn’t planned – Bowie just happened to be by the studio while Queen was recording the song.
Brian May has a PhD in Astrophysics from Imperial College London. He also doesn’t use a plectrum. He uses an old sixpence coin!
Freddie Mercury once said ‘A concert is not a live rendition of an album. It’s a theatrical event.’ Well said Sir.
Queen – Where Are They Now?
After being heralded as perhaps the greatest stage performer in history, he died in 1991. His memory will live on. RIP Freddie.
An accomplished musician, singer-songwriter and producer, Roger Taylor has released a number of solo albums and is slated to release another in 2014.
Brian May CBE is one of the world’s greatest guitarists (ranked alongside Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Jimmy Page and Carlos Santana). Post-Queen, he is a committed animal rights activist, author and scientist.
He was just 19 when he joined Queen and after a phenomenally successful career, he retired from the music industry. It’s been said that he never quite recovered from Freddie’s death but either way, he lives in south London with his wife. They have six children together.
