Austique.co.uk is the destination for online fashion connoisseurs looking to find unique designer fashion labels from around the world. Since opening our store on London's Kings Road, in 2004, we have established an impressive reputation for our exclusive fashion, unique accessories and covetable gifts.
Sisters, Lindy Lopes and Katie Canvin opened their pioneering boutique in May 2004.
“We both really wanted to set-up our own business and realised the potential in importing niche fashion brands to the UK. The boutique was a relatively unknown concept within the UK and the idea of a one-stop shop with a welcoming atmosphere and a personal and honest service is every girl's heaven. It was certainly mine." (Lindy Lopes).
The philosophy behind Austique remains the same; to bring new and niche fashion brands from around the world to you at home. We hope you love them as much as we do!
