Second star to the right. Clean up the clouds if they don´t allow you to see the sky. It´s the sky where everyone dreams when we close the eyes every night. Each dream is changing, like the dreamer. Each dreamer is his freedom´s owner in his ballroom.
And wielding the needles, with a foot in dreamland and other in reality, we can find Fidel David and his work.
Among lace and organza, silk and velvet. Every design belongs to one concept, where imagination dances freely to its own rhythm. Unique, as every stitch. Inspired and daring, like the mind of the insomniacs.
Open the music box, and open your eyes wide. Dreams become fabric and visit daylight.
Femme Jolie is family business dedicated to producing beautiful lolita clothing and accessories, individually tailored to suit all shapes and sizes. We strive to create pieces that overflow with elegance and decadence, channelling our fashion icon Marie Antoinette. Like our favourite french queen, we love extravagance and never hold back on the lace, frills and bows that make all our designs so unique.
Though our designs are inspired by the french rococo period, our brand is stoically British, as each item is lovingly handcrafted in London and all our fabrics have been sourced from the UK. Our clothing is made from 100% cotton in a range of prints that will suit classic, gothic and sweet styles alike. We have a number of designs that can be made in any of the fabrics we stock, giving our customers the opportunity to get creative!
We cannot wait to showcase our brand at Enchanted!

Roxie Sweetheart; Cute and Kawaii jewellery with a twisted edge - for the Harajuku girl in you!
The words 'Cute' and 'Kawaii' ultimately have the same meanings - however with Roxie Sweetheart the word 'Cute' relates to the British origin of the brand (and inspiration from vintage childrens illustration and toys) The word 'Kawaii' relates to the Japanese influence on the designs - fashion, culture and music.
Roxie Sweetheart hand-make and sell a variety of jewellery and accessories which feature unique and whimsical illustrations! Expect glittery floral hairpieces, t shirts with cute illustrations, vintage fawn rings and fairytale themed pieces with unicorns and mermaids!
