It was the first clothing boutique in London selling mini skirts, handmade jewellery, incense,scented candles and funky giftware. The store soon outgrew its space and moved to 642 Richmond Street in November of 1969. This century home was redesigned by a French architect to become the new location of La Jolie Jupe Ltd. The store expanded in 1973, and again in 1981 to occupy the full first floor. Cindy and her Mom ran the store together until her mother passed away in 2007.
