Miss Jones

Bristol Vintage is delighted to introduce you to Miss Jones.

Miss Jones is an exquisite range of bespoke lingerie, handmade to order from pure silk with French Chantilly lace and Swarovski crystals.

Perfect for romantic brides, the honeymoon boudoir and the burlesque starlet in us all.

Designer Jacqueline Jones is behind every item of the Miss Jones range. A trained theatrical costumier who has styled period dramas and movies, her collections are inspired by vintage glamour and elegance.

“I wanted to create a collection of beautiful, delicate, highly decorated pieces that create a special blend of English Rose femininity and sensuality. Miss Jones lingerie is flirtatious; empowering each woman to create a sense of tease with her own style, to enjoy her sensuality and express herself with her lover whilst looking and feeling irresistibly beautiful and confident.”

We think Miss Jones lingerie is perfect for your wedding night and honeymoon trousseau. Find out more on the website and Facebook, but make sure you come and meet Miss Jones herself at our next Bristol Vintage Wedding Fair. She'll have the collection on hand for you to see and she's created a brand new and original negligee to be revealed on the day!
