A Bit About

The first of the fast fashion brands, Miss Selfridge has been a style destination for women ever since it was founded in 1966.

Today, we are a multi-platform shopping experience dedicated to creating wearable and affordable clothes that are 100% crush-worthy.

The Miss Selfridge girl is fun and sociable. She’s confident but never shows off, and loves dressing up to go #OutOut. Always shopping IRL, she finds most of her style inspiration from her friends and the real-life girls on her Insta feed. She’s flawless, but real. She’s inclusive and upbeat. She’s ultimate BFF material.
