    I have this dress which I just listed but am confused about it's date.
    I see 80s or 90s but am wondering if it could be newer than that.

    I cannot find out much info about this store which apparently according to a facebook post has been closed for at least 3 years and I don't know how long it was in actual existence.

    It has it's own layers of tulle, I did not have to add any crinoline to it.

  2. Mary Jane, my first thought was 90s or possibly early 2000s. It looks like a lovely dress. I wish I could be of more help to you and hope others will chime in on the dating.

  4. Maybe some of our members in the UK may see this and have some answers for you. I looked online and found very little on how long this store was in business.....mainly that it was closed!

    Strange a more dead ended brand I have not found.
    Matalan owned a brand called Knightsbridge but I haven't found a link to Yvette at all. I have seen the label before a few times, am pretty sure I have some items with the label on, but I know nothing about it. Going by the age of your item, I assume it has care labels? Can you show all the info in case there is a clue there?
    I checked and the name is not trademarked.

    You might find the care labels between the lining and underskirt etc.
