Our History

Kathy and Caroline have a rich history of experience with vintage and period clothing having grown up surrounded by a family of costumers and seamstresses spanning generations. From early childhood they learned the importance of fine tailoring and beautiful fabrics. Their devotion to vintage clothing developed early on as they searched for unique and timeless pieces of fashion history for their own wardrobes. 

It was their mission to bring these one-of-a-kind vintage gowns to the fashion savvy gals of Ireland. After travelling the world in search of the finest vintage purveyors, Dirty Fabulous opened it’s doors in 2008 to resounding success. 

In 2010 Dirty Fabulous moved to it’s current location in a Victorian building on the first floor of 21 Wicklow Street. In 2019 the shop made another exciting move, to Monaghan.

They have been featured in major editorial magazines at home and internationally, bridal websites and on TV. Check out their press here.

Much of Dirty Fabulous's success has been due to word-of-mouth from their gorgeous customers who have delighted in spreading the Dirty Fabulous word. Many of their customers return year after year, relying on Dirty Fabulous vintage for all their special occasion needs!
