When purchasing from a new designer or collection, it’s vitally important to feel confident and at ease with your purchase decision. At number 35 we want our clients to enjoy the shopping process which in our opinion has been eroded over time. At number 35, it’s about empowering women to be comfortable in who they are and what they wear. To illustrate our service we have asked some of our clients to write quick testimonials on the number 35 experience. Please have a read and we look forward to meeting you soon.
Andrea, I first saw your clothes on the TV show “The Good Wife,” and I loved them—although I never thought they would look as good on me…since I am a normal woman and not a TV star.I was wrong. Your clothes fit beautifully, and are so elegant. They have really made me feel good about myself and how I look in them.

I ordered the Marisa top from Number 35 and was disappointed that the top did not fit me. I was worried that ordering clothing from a company located in the UK may be a problem. I had the opposite experience. Nicci and Andrea went beyond the call of duty to ensure that I was satisfied with my purchase. They asked for my measurements and actually replaced the blouse with a blouse that was a perfect fit for me! I am impressed with their professionalism and attention to customer service. I just love the Marisa blouse and have gotten complements on it every time I wear it.

Living in Highgate Village, on Saturdays I find myself drawn to West Hill with increasing frequency, in particular for the opportunity to drop into number 35. Although a small boutique, I find that there is almost always something to tempt me. I have purchased most of my wardrobe there – from smart separates for work through to elegant dresses for parties and family occasions. I have received numerous compliments from friends, colleagues and clients. There are also some lovely accessories – jewellery and gorgeous belts with eye-catching buckles.What distinguishes number 35 is the degree of personal service – indeed Andrea recently designed a dress for me to wear. Needless to say, it fitted like a glove, and was much admired Andrea has an expert eye, and both she and Christine have provided me with excellent advice and guidance.

My now pretty regular, Saturday visit to number 35 in Highgate is a highlight of the week, whether it is with a mission to buy, explore the new collection or just have a chat, it is always a pleasurable experience. I have to admit that I usually end up parting with far more money than I intended, but I have never been disappointed by any of my purchases. Andrea’s designs are classics, but with a “twist”, be it the now hallmark, orange lining (sounds horrendous, but works wonderfully) or an unusual sleeve or peplum to a jacket. The fabrics are always of excellent quality and carefully chosen. However, if I had to single out just one aspect where number 35 excels, it would be the level and friendliness of the service. The fact that an item can be made effectively to tailor fit or re-designed to accommodate a particular request (I have a preference for three-quarter sleeves !) is, I believe, unique, in a ready-to-wear collection. I have no hesitation in recommending number 35 to my most discerning of friends and colleagues. Well done and long live number 35!

I have always felt special in number 35 clothes, but did not fully appreciate how beautiful, well cut and fitted clothes can empower you until last December, when I had a difficult meeting to attend in the City. I awoke with dreaded anticipation and started to dress. When I had finally decided on my outfit, I realized I had picked number 35 from head to toe. I looked at myself in the mirror and felt that I had grown a foot taller. I looked gorgeous, felt super confident and strode out feeling that I could take on anyone or anything, I did that day. number 35 did that for me! number 35 makes you feel special and individual. The staff seem to intuitively know what will suit you and are not afraid to tell you if something is not for you. They advise you how to wear the garment and how to accessorize it. Needless to say, my wardrobe is bulging with number 35 clothes and I can’t wait until the next collection comes out.
number 35 has definitely changed the way I think about myself and my relationship with clothes. I have never felt great about my body and this reflected in the how I felt about the clothes I wore. Being introduced to Andrea and her collection at number 35 has changed that. At first, I was a little intimidated as I felt the clothes were ‘not for me’. How wrong could I have been? The first piece I bought was for a party I was going to that evening. It was a black linen wrap shirt when I put it on I felt fantastic. The next piece I bought will definitely be in my wardrobe for ever! I absolutely love it! It’s my black patent leather biker jacket. After that I was hooked! number 35 makes me feel very special, elegant and soignée. The clothes fit perfectly, and if Andrea is not entirely happy with the way something looks when you try it on, she will either alter it to fit, or make a new one. I cannot believe how much confidence I have gained by wearing her clothes. I receive so many compliments when wearing an outfit from number 35 – in fact I have never worn something from number 35 without receiving compliments. It has also changed the way in which I look at clothes when out shopping, and I am far more discerning than I used to be. I now realize how clothes should make you feel, and I now find it hard to shop anywhere else. At a party before Christmas and I was dressed head to toe in number 35. The effect was fantastic and I felt the proverbial million dollars. I would recommend anyone to pay a visit to number 35.

Thanks for the personal service & advice yesterday whilst choosing something for my wife.It was such a find to come across your shop in Highgate. I found your story & collection truly amazing & as an exhausted husband made it so easy to choose something for my wife. After minimal description and discussion, your advice was spot on & my wife loved the shirt which was immediately flattering & matched an existing jacket to a T. It’s been a long time since we have found a designer with such passion, flair & business acumen that we will be back very soon to choose some more additions to her wardrobe of wearable but luxurious clothes. Good luck for your future, I am sure that you will go far & very quickly. See you soon.
