House of Lalka” is a collection of vintage artifacts sourced from the house of Regina Chmurska, a Polish dress maker who survived World War II. She spent a lifetime collecting and making clothes to replace the contents of her crocodile suitcase stolen during the German invasion.
Revived and hand picked by Regina’s Grandaughters, the pieces you see are either original vintage or redesigned inspired by Regina’s signature style. We will be having our own modest section in Sisters and Daughters, and the evening will be a celebtration of Regina, all things vintage, and this opportunity as it was always her dream to have her own shop. We will be having live window displays, music, cupcakes from The Primrose Hill Bakery and Babysham!
