Hockerill boutique moves to town centre
Boutique owner Tracey Calvert has relocated her Mie-Style shop to the centre of Bishops Stortford.
The 54-year-old mother of three formerly operated from Hockerill Street, in premises now occupied by the Wiggly Willow café, after opening in April 2016.
The former designer for Valentina of London – who attended the London College of Fashion and the University of the Arts, and has a degree in fashion and clothing technology – has moved to a new unit in the revamped Riverside Walk, off South Street, in a bid to increase footfall.
The new outlet, with a staff of two, reflects her ethos of catering for “real women” of all ages and sizes.
She said: “I think Stortford is an up-and-coming destination with lots of development and new restaurants.”
She lives in Hallingbury Road in the town with partner Paul and children Dominic, 24, Bea, 22, Beth, 19, and William, 14.
She also runs an online shop, www.mie-style.uk, and will be launching her own made-for-Mie-Style collection in October.
