History Of The Garment
Bourne & Hollingsworth was a high-end London department store. It was founded by two brothers-in-law in 1894, starting as a drapers shop in Westbourne Grove, selling drapery goods, laces, ribbons, gloves and millinery. Although having some general departments, they always catered predominately to women, including women’s and children’s clothing, fashion accessories and haberdashery. Bourne & Hollingsworth were known for the quality of their merchandise.
