WERKHAUS MARGATE: MENSWEAR FOR WOMEN
WerkHaus Margate is a shop and online retailer selling modern ethical non-seasonal womenswear, accessories and curated vintage pieces. Located in the heart of Margate’s Old Town, WerkHaus was founded by Rae Jones, an accessories & footwear designer and trend forecaster, and Cynthia Lawrence-John, a fashion director, magazine editor, stylist & costume designer.
WerkHaus’ distinctive and guiding ethos is to offer women the clothing that has the utilitarian traits more traditionally found in military, sport and working menswear. Emphasis is on providing clothing that’s practical and long lasting as well as flattering and stylish. The Werkhaus aesthetic and quality standard harks back to times when clothing was necessarily built to last, used natural fibres and kept practicality and functionality in mind.
The shop stocks clothing that suits a broad range of ages and sizes and is focused around carefully sourced, rare dead-stock items typically of British, European and American origin. Own brand WerkHaus tees, sweatshirts and bags are made from organic cotton with screen-printing and manufacture all taking place in the UK, with plans to develop the collection to include clothing and footwear in the future.
In addition, an eclectic range of labels that share a similar sustainable spirit complements this. Clothing brands Kings of Indigo, Stan Ray and L.C.King sit happily alongside accessories from Kate Jones Knitwear, Le Beret Francais, Jollies and Hysteria socks, Beatriz Furest sandals, Buckitt leather bags and Haeckels skincare, amongst others.
