About Us


Growing up in a family who had owned a fancy dress shop for 20 years and three generations, _MG_1475

gave me a love for dressing up and seeing that people come in all shapes and sizes. As I got older my love for dressing up turned to a love for 1940’s and 1950’s glamour. I also found that it was hard to find sleep wear and lounge wear in this glamorous style in Australia.

So I convinced my mum and my grandmother to help me bring these items to life, and the Minxy Vixen label was made.

With inspiration from the beautiful ladies of Hollywood like Veronica Lake, Joan Crawford and Bette Davis as well as the sexy pinup style of the 1950s we have found original 1940’s and 1950’s patterns to make our designs. Each item can be made to measure on request for any size lady as well as being made in a variety of off shelf sizes. We also make one off day wear items that are original and mean you can wear an item you don’t have to share with anyone else!

When you place an order with Minxy Vixen you can be sure every item is handmade and hand packed just for you.

We hope you enjoy our handmade and Australian made items as much as we do and feel good wearing them.
