Cecil Beaton, the English set and costume designer for some of the most famous films of the late 1940s and the 1950s, including My Fair Lady, and fashion photographer of the stars including Greta Garbo and Audrey Hepburn, once said:
“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”
In the spirit of this creative rationale, we at the House of CQ are differentiated by our focus on exclusive design, exceptional quality and craftsmanship. Our vision for you and for the future of fashion, highlights fashion as an experience and includes thoughtful consideration of what we choose to wear.
We embrace timeless elegance with a touch of glamour. We make fashion and couture that is accessible, affordable and more sustainable. We support and encourage a local industry of suppliers and makers.
This is our direction and we welcome you to experience the difference for yourselves.
