The in-house pattern creation and size customization options will make it easy for you to order your individual size without(!) the nowadays commonly used plastic based stretch fibers necessary to ‚fit in‘. Ethically manufactured, slow fashion without any surplus produced.





PRETTIE LANES offers the new, traditionally fashioned alternative to true vintage in your size - the original since 2015. All designs are manufactured using finest, historically accurate sewing and construction techniques as well as period accurate materials, creating that signature vintage look & feel emphasized by a generous amount of hand-stitched details - a luxury component all PRETTIE LANES originals feature.

Welcome to one of the smallest „fashion houses“ in the world!

PRETTIE LANES fashion designs are ethically tailored in Switzerland on a sustainable, made-to-order basis to avoid overproduction and to perfectly sync supply and demand in an industry in which garment waste is one of the biggest problems worldwide. Manufacturing with highest quality standards, garments are made of plastic free (no polyester, spandex, elasthane), renewable raw material based, recyclable and bio-degradable fabrics and durable materials such as metal zippers, metal buttons and buckles. Compromises are made in exceptional cases for in-house archival deadstock fabrics that would otherwise go to waste and for unique Couture designs made of materials having no existent natural derived alternatives, respectively if an alternate material can substantially ensure the longevity of an investment piece like a couture dress (i.e. Silk Tulle vs. Nylon Tulle). All orders are packed plastic-free in fully bio-degradable and recyclable materials. Social responsibility has been a key pillar of this company and since the beginning of operation in 2015, PRETTIE LANES has proudly been and still is a donor and supporter of organizations and projects worldwide. Thank you for shopping small!
