Sweet Disorder Vintage is the passion of owner Kate Russel. 

It all started in London, on Portabello Rd. As a student at St. Martins College I'd dig through the market searching for inspiration. One day I spotted a cage crinoline hanging in a shop window and fell in love. I worked in that shop where I was archivist, seamstress and lady-in-waiting to the grande dame in charge. I helped everyone from John Galliano to Hedi Slimane find what they needed to inspire their collections.

Sweet Disorder's clientele includes fashion labels, costume designers, museums and design archives worldwide.

The name 'Sweet Disorder' comes from a poem by Robert Herrick. It perfectly captures the spirit of 'wild civility' in every garment offered by Sweet Disorder Vintage.

Delight in Disorder

BY Robert Herrick
A sweet disorder in the dress 
Kindles in clothes a wantonness; 
A lawn about the shoulders thrown 
Into a fine distraction; 
An erring lace, which here and there 
Enthrals the crimson stomacher; 
A cuff neglectful, and thereby 
Ribands to flow confusedly; 
A winning wave, deserving note, 
In the tempestuous petticoat; 
A careless shoe-string, in whose tie 
I see a wild civility: 
Do more bewitch me, than when art 
Is too precise in every part.
