About & History
Jenny & Ly
The home of Jenny Ford Design based in Sydney.
Jenny who studied at the Fashion Design School at TAFE NSW specialises in Vintage Dresses & Retro Chic. Classic and easy to wear designs with beautiful natural fabrics. Partnering with Jenny is Ly, who is an Engineer by day and a Fashionista by night! As women who live in Sydney, we know how hard it is to find great fashion buys at reasonable prices!
We started at the Kirribilli Markets in 2011 for no other reason than we lived there and thought we could make and sell clothes. We had much to learn!
We then dabbled with eBay, then had a kiosk and later a shop in Westfield Chatswood. After our wing of Westfield got demolished for a renovation, we settled on and grew with the phenomenal help of the Paddington Markets in Sydney and the Old Bus Depot Markets in Canberra. We are now moving towards a purely online offering so we can keep driving prices down and continuously improve quality while always providing an amazing customer experience.
Also lets not forget the ever helpful husbands of Richard and Phear who bring their daytime expertise in Cloud Computing and Investment Banking to help the business. Leveraged mainly by carrying heavy boxes, unloading vans and fetching McMuffins. With the occasional underpaid foray into writing code and debugging data feeds while always answering "Beautiful" to every utterance of "How do I look in this dress?".
