Meet Gillian Chalmers - a girl who loves shopping for vintage so much she turned it into a business. And looking at her own vintage wardrobe you can see why it's such a success, says Jen Barton. Think Chanel and Oscar de la Renta...
Gillian Chalmers has been bringing her own blend of bold, colourful style to the lucky inhabitants of Gourock on the west coast of Scotland, since she opened the doors to her boutique Parma Vintage in 2007.
Quirky, fun and timeless.
When did you fall for vintage?

Since getting hooked on vintage, it was my dream to bring my passion and collection to the public. I opened my shop Parma Vintage, in my local home town of Gourock - the name Parma Vintage is inspired by my love for the retro sweets Parma Violets.
