This Manchester company’s vintage-inspired womenswear – including fifties-style prom dresses, polka-dot shoes and swing skirts – has tapped into the demand for retro clothing. The business was set up in 2010 by Tim Hall, 34, and Dylan Cross, 40, both of whom previously sourced and sold vintage clothing on eBay. Lindy Bop sells directly to consumers through its UK and US websites. It also has a wholesale division supplying specialist boutiques in the UK and Europe. Sales reached £10.1m last year.
