About Now, Voyager:
We at Now, Voyager believe every single lady has the right to look pin-up gorgeous every day of the week and that right should be fun and affordable!
We are two best friends, Felicity and Lauren, with two very different styles but exactly the same style ethic: style is conviction and we do not believe in compromise. If you don’t believe you look fabulous, why should anyone else? We both come from fashion backgrounds and last summer decided to put our love of handmade, unusual hair accessories and glamorous clothing to good use and open our own boutique in Southend. We opened the doors of our shop in October ’09 with the website following in January ’10.
Felicity hand makes all of our hair accessories with her inspiration coming from the teens of Harajuku to the pin-ups of today’s 40s/50s revival scene. Lauren’s inspiration for the shop name came from her favourite Bette Davis film. With her love of all things from the golden age of cinema, Lauren lives every day like a Billy Wilder movie.
Our bestsellers can often vary between our large selections of beautiful velvet rose clips and our signature corsages to our knitted cake clips which go down a treat at the many vintage fairs that we attend- especially the cherry bakewells! Our customers love to rummage through the massive selection of knitted doughnuts, cookies, swiss rolls and cupcake hair clips that we lay out on cake stands- all the pleasure but none of the guilt with our little treats! Another of our signature hair clips are our birds, which come in various colours in either perched or flying- super cute!
We Make London:
When paying a visit to the Now, Voyager stall, you’ll find our own range of hair accessories which include flowers of all types from roses to lilies to Hawaiian, floral corsages, knitted cakes and cookies, traditional 40s snoods and our super cute ‘party bag’ range including seaside windmills and plastic gun hair clip sets.
