The Linzi Line was a British fashion label that was established to rival the look and quality of the Horrockses brand. The collection, however, was aimed at a younger market and was advertised as "exciting to wear, fashion perfect and pleasantly priced". The various dresses I have owned by this label have impeccable construction and utilise quality fabrics, mainly cotton. Linzi Line was advertised in the British Vogue magazine and all their ads feature innovative designs, lovely fabrics and excellent tailoring. 

Condition 

Excellent vintage condition.

No notable flaws that I can see, it is in great condition for its age. 

Please note that these are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws will be highlighted here.

 

Comment 

This is by far one of the best Linzi Line dresses I have seen and is in fact superior to many of its rival - Horrockses.  Please drop us a line if you require additional information about this listing.

The listing is for the dress only and does not include any other accessories that may have been photographed with the item.
