Past Stockists of Charles and Patricia Lester Collections

Bergdorf Goodman Christmas window
Over the years Charles and Patricia have been sought out by some of the most prestigious and well-respected stores and specialty boutiques in the world. The journey began about 35 years ago when they supplied a tiny shop in Bath which specialised in stocking unusual and unique work created by artists.

Their first big store was Liberty in London. At the time they were the first ever artists/fashion designers whose work was featured in ALL of the windows in Regent Street. The exotic window displays were part of the International Silk Convention held in Liberty’s. The couture buyer from Bendels in New York saw the display in Liberty’s and invited Patricia and Charles to London to discuss Bendels carrying the collection. Once in New York many other major stores wanted to place orders. By the early eighties the business had become well- established and was growing rapidly.

Since this time, we have changed the emphasis of the business completely preferring to offer the 1-2-1 bespoke experiences for individual clients. If however you have a boutique and would be interested in applying to provide our specialist services to your customers, then do get in touch.
