In 2001 at the age of 17, Hayley was selling vintage and customised clothing also handmade jewellery and underwear at Greenwich Market and to boutiques around Kent and London including 2 in Bluewater the largest shopping centre in Europe at the time.
One of the garters she was commissioned to make for undressme.tili.com appeared on Television on the Ruby Wax show in 2001.
Hayley was also mentioned in Bliss magazine which was published in July 2002
She opened her boutique selling vintage and retro clothes shoes and accessories and hand made jewellery in 2005 and ran that for 4 years
the boutique was used as a backdrop for lots of local photo shoots for uni students, bands, hairdressers, etc where they also used the clothing that she had cherry picked!
Then decided to concentrate on the online side of things with the way the high street was diminishing, so set up shop online.
She has been selling vintage items worldwide for 13 years, and has a great knowledge of different fashions from different eras
She has sold items to display in the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden
Hayley was picked and asked to create 20 looks including sourcing all the pieces and styling the outfits for a charity fashion show, where Hayley showcased a collection of classic vintage peices from the 50's to the 80's including eveningwear and swimwear all in a way that would be very wearable today!
She also had experience as a stylist on 2 local stage productions (ROAR PRODUCTIONS) one set in the 60's and the other in the 70's, whereby Hayley found all the clothing and styled the outfits for the 6 main characters.
Also lent garments that were hand-made or hunted for to photo shoots for Toni & Guy, FHM and the touring West End show 'Buddy' the Buddy Holly story, supplied a bag for a drama on ITV and sold to one of the worlds top vintage brands who sell to "Rock Royalty, LA Celebs + New York fashion studios".
