My vintage clothes collection. My Edinburgh vintage shop, clothes and accessories from my 30 years of obsessively collecting and never selling. Miss Bizio Couture's Shop is the source for some of the best vintage clothing and vintage haute couture you can buy anywhere. Miss Bizio carefully curates and edits her pieces for the best dressed women. Everything is in excellent condition and laundered or dry cleaned so is ready to wear the moment you buy it.

Visited this vintage shop on stockbridge. When I walked in no-one was in the shop. A lady then appeared 5/10 mins later and was surprised that I was in the shop. The first thing she said was that everything is over £100. I was looking...More

Maybe not everyone has the same opinions as we did and I'm sorry for any offense it may cause, but this was our experience: As we first walked into the store, the owner (who seemed hostile and overprotective) informed us that nothing was under 100pounds,...More

Strangely rude and diffident lady peddling designer clothes she bought for herself over a 35 year period. As a consequence everything is the same size - I'm guessing a 10, 5ft 3, so not suited for everyone. In terms of accessories, there are certainly some...More
