  1. I have many of the skirts, love them all. Are there any plans to design one that is inspired from music, with notes, quavers, ‘waving sheet music’?
    I think something on these lines could potentially be popular

  2. I found your stall in Greenwich market. Such beautiful designs. I have bought a skirt & cant wait to wear it.
    There doesn’t appear to be any dresses on your website. Is this something you are considering ? I would be VERY interested. J

  5. Hi – I bought one of your skirts yesterday, love your work, so happy to be introduced to it – so much I have just ordered a t-shirt, can’t wait for it to arrive – more fabulous unique designs. Thank you

  6. Just bought my third skirt from you at Covent Garden in London I can’t tell you how excited I was . Every time I wear my skirts I am stope by someone who ask me where I got the skirt. It’s such a change to wear something so different than what is in the shops and be noticed. They wash up so well and are so comfortable to wear with the silk slip. Thank You. Going to save up for the butterfly one now and a coat. Just fantastic

  7. Nicola, I love your skirts, bought 2 last summer and have worn them so often, and they are always admired. I bought 3 more last week and have already worn each of them. Lindsey

  8. I bought the London Eye skirt from you on Saturday 26th January.

    I am worried that it it not colour fast.

    I dabbed a small spot of chocolate off the front and the kitchen towel turned grey.

    Should I add salt to the washing machine when I wash it?

    Kind regards

    Elaine Booth

    • Hi Elaine, I know we’ve already spoken and you’re fine to wash the gently by hand or in the washing machine on a cold gentle cycle like a hand wash or wool program. Warmest. Nicola

  9. Last Monday I purchased a (brand-new) tattered sunflower skirt at my local Savers (second-hand or thrift shop) here in Las Vegas, Nevada. When I saw it on the rack, I knew it was special. I don’t usually do research on my thrift store scores, but I looked you up. I am not sure how this fabulous skirt ended up here, but I’m glad it did! I wore it to work today and got so many compliments – from my supervisor to strangers at the pharmacy (chemist). The skirt is a little big, but if I wear a long enough top, you can’t tell. Before I looked you up, I was tempted to wash it normally to see if it would shrink up a bit, but now think I’ll have it properly tailored.
    I kind of don’t want to tell you how much I paid…but I will confess that I was shopping on our Martin Luther King Jr. holiday when I should have been reading about civil rights.
    Thanks for your work and for offering it in so many sizes. You are a designer for all women!
    Hugs from Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada!

    • Hi Sharon!
      I’m in Jubilee Market, Covent Garden, every Saturday and Sunday. And Petra is in Greenwich market on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I’m not in Camden any more! See you soon, Nicola

  11. Hi Nicola, will you re-run the DNA design one day? Whenever I wear mine (usually at conferences – including the World Economic Forum), heaps of people ask where I got it! It’s a pity to have to tell them it’s no longer available!

    • Hi Ceridwen, I don’t have any plans to make it immediately but maybe it will return one day! In the mean time, you’re the member of a very exclusive club! 🙂

  12. Hi Nicola!

    I’m the American who bought the long skirt from you at Covent Garden on Friday. Just to let you know, I wrapped it in plastic and it traveled in checked baggage. I had to carry many of the books my self. I just signed up for your mailing list. Maybe if I am good, the next time I will agree with you on the smaller size, however I do love the pattern that I picked. I definitely will stop by if I am ever in London on a Friday again. I don’t mind paying for quality and I obviously have something that no one else has. One complaint – it would be helpful if I knew before writing a book here that your site did NOT like my version of your Captcha!

  13. Hiya,
    I have three of your skirts, love them all and wear them a lot. Living in Paris I am often asked where my London skyline one and get lots of complaints. I wondered if you’ve considered doing any other cities? I’d love a Paris one if you ever consider it!
    Thank you!

  14. I bought an awesome skirt in Covent Garden in November. When I needed to exchange it for another style I got great customer service from Nicola and her team. Will surely by from you again. Five stars! Thanks, Nicola!

  15. Hi there,

    Bought one of your skirts at the Greenich Markets while I was in London on holiday – love it and have had so many comments about it. Any chance you would ship to New Zealand?


  16. I only come crossed Nicola yesterday why walking round Camden market her skirts are amazing and fill beautiful on can’t wait for the wedding I’m July so I can show of my new skirt will definitely be purchasing more of your skirts

  17. Just to say, my London skirt arrived this week and I LOVE it. I was in Kew Gardens a week and a half ago, and saw a woman wearing one (in blue, actually, which looked good). I followed her a bit, and then googled the skirt which led me to the website. I did take a trip up to Camden but it was a weekday and so there weren’t any London skirts in stock so I ordered online.
    I’ve already had compliments and people asking where it’s from!

    Now for the next skirt..!!

    • Hi Sara, That’s so great to hear… I’m only in Camden on the weekends but come and see me if you’re around then or you can (like you already did) order online 🙂

  18. Hi Nicola,
    I bought one of your fab skirts when I was down in London a couple of months back. I’m heading down again this week so was just wondering if you’ll be in Camden on Friday or Saturday so I can treat myself to another.


  19. I first see your lovely skirt on a patient. In a kent hospital and I know my granddaughter would love one. Can I ask , do you have one with pusy cats going round the bottom of the skirt , like the one with horses. If you do ,I would like to purchase one for her bithday in March.
    Looking forward to your response

    • Hi Josie,
      Thanks for your message.
      I’m afraid we don’t have a skirt like the Ascot with cats.
      Is there anything else your granddaughter might like? Does she have a favourite colour?

  20. Hi, I purchased one of your tulip skirts at Greenwich and love it! I would like a long weather vain one in size healthy. Can you advise when they will be in stock please.

    • Hi Anita!
      Glad to hear you are so pleased with The Tulips skirt! Unfortunately we are out of stock of The Weathervane in Long Healthy.
      I’m currently working on new designs so not planning to make it again just yet. If you’re after something similar, have you thought about the London Eye skirt? It has the same colours and is just as funky!

  21. Dear Nicola
    I would like to buy my mum one of your skirts for Christmas, however the one she adores, the long tulip one, is not available for her size, 18 to 20. Will any become available to buy in time for Christmas?
    With kind regards
    Tina Crow

    • Hi Christina,
      Thanks for your message!
      I will have Tulips skirt ready again at the end of November. There will be a couple of Long Voluptuous skirts (18-20).
      Are you on the mailing list? If not add yourself (click on the “Info/Help” button and then “Subscribe”) and I’ll let you know as soon as they’re on sale!

  22. Just received my Long Black Tulip skirt. It is BEAUTIFUL! I now have 4 of your skirts (three bought a while back from Greenwich market on a visit) and every time I wear them they are commented on and admired. Keep designing them and I shall keep buying them (and I’m not a youngster either, but a granny!). They make me feel special!

  23. Hi Nicola:

    Hope you are keeping well.

    My hubby and I were at the Camden Town Market in June and I bought two of your LOVELY skirts. (We are Canadians, not sure if you remember me – a bit zuftig with a ponytail).

    Anyhow, I’ve worn the skirts and have received tons of compliments.

    Could you please advise washing instructions?

    Many thanks. Also, do you ship overseas? Your products are so unique and reflective of your outgoing and lovely personality!

    Kind regards, Deborah

    • Hi Deborah, Sorry for my late reply…The washing instructions are on the labels and my website – hand wash. Or in a gentle hand-wash program in the washing machine. You can also tumble dry. Warmest. Nicola

  24. Hi Nicola,
    Just a suggestion for this website : Could you add a section on garment care?
    You mentioned washing instructions and how to press the skirt when I purchased it yesterday but I didn’t really take it all in and now I’m a bit nervous of doing the wrong thing. From the comments below it seems like I needn’t worry, but it would be reassuring to have recommended care instructions on this website. – I don’t want to ruin it accidentally.
    I see that the individual skirts have a ‘dry clean or hand wash’ recommendation included with the product details but you indicated that a cool, gentle machine wash would be OK, and you said something about pressing and brushing, but I’ve forgotten that! If it was included on the website that would be great.


    • Hi Alison,
      I think our care page has vanished! Will get that sorted.
      Mean time best to hand wash cold or dry-clean unless you have a super-dooper machine which has a nice wool or hand-wash program.
      You can also steam iron and brush – you don’t have to wash every time!
      Hope that helps.

  25. Hi Nicola,

    Have just found your amazing clothes at Camden today. Bought two gorgeous skirts. Will definetly be back for more.

  26. Hi Nicola. My little daughter and I met you yesterday at Camden Market. You were so helpful and kind and it was a pleasure to purchase from you. I bought two skirts and I love them, I will definitely be buying more!

  27. Hi, I wore my mini silver sun flower again the other day. I’ve had it for a couple years now and it’s still my favorite skirt. It’s both rock’n roll and classy. It works just as well with flat boots as with a pair of heels. I went to Stylist show and I was very pleased to see it was the right choice for the event as it got quite a few looks of approval which I didn’t expect. It was comforting as I went for the catwalk show later and had no clue what one wears to these. Anyhow, that’s why after 2 years I though it was about time I said thank you Nicola! And I think you should try to get a booth at the show next year! I hope business is good. Best, Virginie

  28. Evening,

    I’m just putting my birthday & Christmas list together 🙂 but the skirt I wanted to add has disappeared 🙁 I was after a long, voluptuous DNA – do you still have any ?

    Thank you

    • did I get back to you about this? Will do a give away on DNA at some point and will look if there are any long Voluptuous.


  29. Hi Nicola,
    I bought a lifesaver skirt from you at Greenwich Market years ago during my stint in the UK. Every time I wear it I get comments on what a fabulous skirt it is. I have since also bought a London skyline skirt which I also love. They fit really well and I like your healthy attitude to sizes.
    Steph in NZ.

    • Hi Steph,
      That’s really great to hear!
      Glad you like the sizes 🙂
      Come and say hi if you’re ever back in London.

  30. Nicola,
    I met you today at Camden Market. I immediately was attracted by your beautiful skirts. I bought two and tried them on the minute I got home.
    I love them. Thank you for your skill and I know I will enjoy wearing them. I love the lining of the tulip skirt. Such thought has gone into designing and presenting them with an amazing bag to coordinate.

    I’m so glad I found you!

    Nailsea. Bristol

    • Hi Sally,

      So nice to hear. The lining will be in all of them eventually.
      We are putting allot of thought into them and glad you can feel it.
      Especially when you have to come out into such a cold day….

      Have a lovely weekend.


    • It’s lovely to hear that Nailsea.. I’m only just seeing all these messages now.. There was a problem with display on the back end of the site!

  31. Hello,
    I bought a skirt on a whim in Camden last August because it fit perfectly, which is a rarity in itself. I wore it a couple of days ago and my friends loved it! I also bought a knee length one and a linen top on the site and they’re stunning. I’m already thinking of buying another knee length skirt; my only problem is which one to choose because they’re all so wonderful! You’re such an artist!
    Thanks and keep on!

    • Hi Bridget,

      I’m so glad you’re happy with them.
      The skirts I’ve been making for years.
      The Tops are new for us but I love them and wear them all the time.
      We’re just working on some new designs now – some with sleeves and some without.




  32. Hello !
    I live in France. Last time I went to London , I bought a mini skirt ‘” vibrant violets” at Camden. I get compliments every time I wear it ! I love it so much that I’ve just bought a new one, a size larger so I can wear it lower on the hips, and it will appear a little bit longer ( better to go to work…)
    I’ve also ordered a long skirt… Everything is so gorgeous !!! It is very hard to make a choice…
    Congratulations for your creativity,
    Best regards,

  33. Hello Nicola.
    I have bought around 8 skirts from you during the last 3 years to my girlfriend and now wife in Denmark.
    Now we have seen your video and some of the women are wearing a super cool skirt with small men in different colours but I can´t find it on your site. Is it a skirt that you will be getting again? I hope so……
    kind regards
    Johan Aagaard

    • Hi Johan,
      Nice to hear from you! The Walkmen skirt (with the little men on it) will be available from the end of November x

  34. Hi Nicola, I bought a skirt from you today in Camden, nearly missed you after taking too long over ice cream, however I got home and my partner thought it was absolutely beautiful and wanted to know if you did commissions as she would like a suit jacket with the same design on the sleeves, let me know ?

    Also I’m definitely going to buy the lifesaver coat !

    • Hi Caroline – I couldn’t get into this message and reply for some reason – system software failure….. Anyways I don’t make one offs but I am planning jackets… The lifesaver coats are really low for Healthy and Xhealthy – Don’t know what size you are? x

  35. I recently bought Windmills – what a lovely, very wearable skirt. All my friends love your sizing methods and I’m happy to tell people my size when its extra healthy / voluptuous 🙂 . Your service was fantastic and made trying on skirts, even in a snowy Camden, a pleasure. Thank you very much. Just working out which one I want next!.

  36. Hi
    Saw your beach hut skirt on your website but no sizes come up in the drop down box – is that because they are out of stock and will they come back again?


    • I’m afraid if they are out they are out .. We sometimes repeat but not so much lately as we’re trying to get new deigns out!



  37. Hello,

    I am very pleased with the 2 skirts I bought, they are very comfortable and beautiful.
    I wanted to buy the Knee length Navy Globe Trotter skirt on the website but unfortunatly no more size healthy. Do they come back in stock again or could I get it one way or another ? I love it !

    Thank you for your reply.

  38. Hi, Nicola, today I’ve received my two skirts in Milan, I’m too happy! They are even more beautiful than in your pictures. Everything was perfect with my purchase, payment and shipping. I hope to buy some other clothes as soon as possible. Best regards and thanks

  39. Hi Nicola, I was so happy with my black red feathered skirt bought in Camden market two years ago, I felt so good wearing it and got so many compliments that now I’ve bought two more skirts (gray-green ribbon and spy eyes) online and I can’t wait to receive the parcel. Compliments for your work.

  40. Hi Nicola, I’m from Milan, I’ve bought a black skirt with a red feather two years ago at Camden market… I was so happy I could buy a true english garment and not some pseudo-oriental junk I could have found everywhere worldwide… I’ve bene so happy with my skirt, I’ve worn it so many times, summer and winter, feeling so good and getting so many compliments that I’ve just ordered online two more skirts and I can’t wait to receive the parcel…

  41. A coworker of mine had one of your skirts on at work. I fell in love with it. I will be in London this weekend, 5 January and I would love to find you in the Camden Market. What hours will you be there? Thank you! Best regards. Patricia

  42. You are my addiction! Haha! Such great quality and I wish I lived in London so I could get them at Camden Market.

    I want to do a massive buy… Any chance you have a mini wishy-washy somewhere? I love the design but I’m pretty little. Mini’s aren’t actually that mini on me.

    Canada is so far awaaaay!

  43. Hi Nicola,
    I bought one of the poppy-mini at camden market one week ago and lost it during the shopping day in London! Luckily I used my card to pay the skirt so I could easily find your name and order it again online! I’m so happy about it!
    Hugs – Marianne from Switzerland
    PS Waiting for the coats 🙂

  44. I bought 2 skirts years ago in campden (poppies and violet/green flowers – regret did’t buy ivy too)… everybody keeps asking me where I bought them. I’ve been using them intensively and still look great. will buy another soon. tks. Cecilia

  45. I used to buy from you in Camden market but now live in Spain. Everyone always comments on your dresses and skirts and I pass the site on. I would love to pick up a bargain in your sale but the site is not letting me click on any items. I received your email saying the site had crashed with the amount of interest but just wondering if it is still down since you released more items? Thanks. Emily

    • Hi Emily,

      I added the cells to compensate for the site crashing with all the orders.
      You should be able to order those as they are fairly new and I have the sizes.
      The site did go a bit crazy with all the orders.


  46. I can’t wait until friday to go and see your shop Nicola in Camden Market. I found many nice skirts I would like to have and hopefully I will get some especially when I’m gonna pass all the way from windy Edinburgh.

    • Hi There,
      I’m not there on Friday but Nadia or Hanlon are … Let me know if you have trouble fidning them

  47. Hi Nicola,

    Have you thought about supplying to stockists in Australia? I bought a mini poppy design skirt at Greenwich Market last year and am stopped by women of all ages in Sydney every single time I wear it! Even men have commented on it! I refer them all to your website but I am sure a store or two would do well to stock your designs.

    Best wishes,

    • Hi Sharon,
      I’d love to have a stockist in oz as it would give me a legitimate business reason to come home!!
      I haven’t had time to sort it though…

  48. Hi!
    Hi Nicola
    I recently bought one of your long ‘bird’ skirts from Greenwich Market.
    I bought the largest size which is a bit big, but the next smaller size was a little snug! (I was on holidays after all!).
    I am keen to order your wrap dress but concerned that the ‘normal size’ will be too small after seeing the measurements.
    Do you ever make the dress in a larger size?
    I also have had loads of comments about the skirt so may place a big order for friends as well as a few more pieces for me!


  49. Bonjour Nicola,
    Saturday I bought one of your skirts in Camden Market, remember that I didn’t buy one, few years ago when I came with friends. Now I’ve got mine! Just coming bacj to France at home I look at your website. I think I need a new skirt from your collection !! There are so pretty! I ‘m waiting for the day I’ll wear it… sure for a french wine degustation this weekend (you remember the corbieres!)

    • Hi There,
      Yes I looked up the wine – looks really amazing!
      If we make it to this region in France I will certainly let you know

  50. Hi Nicola,
    I bought two skirts from you last weekend – your last grey violets one and a black one… I’ve worn both already a few times and I’m getting comments on them all the time…. I think I need some more, so will be ordering again soon! I’ve also shared your website on Facebook 🙂
    Was lovely chatting with you too, and thanks for the advice on the other markets, we stopped for coffee at the piano man & it was great!

    • Hi There Veronica,

      So nice to hear that.
      Hope the piano man wasn’t too cranky.. He is a bit better after 11!

      See you again


    • I have a thing for skirts with pokctes as well. And you’re right… it’s odd that no one really makes a big deal when pants have pokctes. Ironically I think I don’t even use pants pokctes, but I’m more inclined to put my hands in skirt ones. Oh well… love the one you have and the stripey top is perfect with it! Also love the color of the cardigan!

  51. Hi Nicola!
    Had a very long day today, and before it even began I decided that I
    needed a ‘power skirt’… Meeting with two parents and two bratty
    kids. Well I went in with my ‘cell’ skirt, wearing a new flashy orange
    top that matched perfectly! How did the meeting go, you might ask?
    Frankly, it was a bust– the kids clearly run the show at home and the
    parents are clearly nuts. But more importantly, how did I look?
    Fantastic!!!! (I tell you, Nicola, before you came along, I knew very
    little about vanity!!!!!) 😉
    Hope all is well at your end!!

  52. Got the skirt today…. LOVE it!!!
    got so many compliments for one of your skirts I bought on camden market that i needed to get another one. we’ll see how this one works 😉

      • Rick’s Mom – OMG and I say that from the bottom of my grrlmdotheany heart!Visty you are amazing. You take a baby, some weeds and a log and make it a work of art. only one thing could make it any better, and that would be your 3 in the picture too!

  53. Hi!

    I bought you 2 skirts this Saturday, I imagine that you cannot remember me (there are so many people in your place) …but I only want to say you that your webpage is great!!, really, I dress your skirt for first time and in my work all my workmate (not only female) say me that its so beautiful!!!, and, of course, I think it too…and it’s incredible because my body is very strange and is so difficult to find clothes that make me well but your skirts are perfect (thanks to you because you help me so much to choose them)

    Thanks for all !!


  54. Dear Nicola,

    its been now five month since i got married in your white poppie skirt. I allways wanted to send you a picture. Everybody loves your skirt and i felt really good and compfy that day. I couldn’t find a nice red top for me, so I choosed a white one with a bright red jacket on top.
    Best greetings from Frankfurt.

    Three years ago I bought one of your skirts in Camden Market and since then I have not stopped wearing it, it is part of my personality.
    This spring I have been looking for skirts at shops around Madrid, but I was not happy with what I was seeing. So one afternoon I thought of that day when I bought the skirt and I remembered the young lady that sold it to me, and that had told me that you have a webpage.
    So I googled the name that was written on my skirt’s label and I found out you have a webpage where you sell skirts and you are as well an artist and I listened your songs.
    So happy to have found this service again.
    Kind regards
    Armela Dino

  56. Hi Nicola,
    I am loving my 5 Nicola Quilter original skirts…but I need more!
    Every time I wear my skirts I get comments from people…everytime!
    People I don’t even know ask me about them.
    I direct people to your website, but maybe I should get some of your cards to give out!

  57. Dear Nicola
    I bought one of your beach-hut skirts from you in Camden market last Easter, with my daughter’s encouragement, but although I liked it, I thought it would be a white elephant in my wardrobe and that I would regret it – I had given up wearing anything so tight, or skirts so short, and in any case although I like beachuts in other senses, I only really wear black (ok sometimes green/khaki but I don’t do colours!) and I have a real issue with quirky…none of that boded well, so imagine my surprise when I have worn and worn and worn that skirt – with tights and boots, with sandals and leggings, leggings and vans, to work, on the beach, blah blah.  Looks great with a short jacket. and I have had so many compliments (both personal – including from very unexpected quarters!) and for the skirt, I can’t tell you. I am sure I will be back for more!

  58. About three years ago I have been to your stall at Camden. I bought the long black skirt with the daffodils- and what can I say- it is the best skirt I have ever had. I love it and get lots of compliments for it.
    Over the last years I have been searching for you on the internet- and now I have found you. Great!
    Best regards,

  59. I should tell you that you are very much in demand among my friends and colleagues. I bought a skirt from you back in June and since then almost everyone I work with and my sister and some of her friends are either wearing one of your numbers or hankering after one!! My mum is also going to get the dragonfly one for her birthday.
    Thanks for brightening up our days, Sue.

  60. Dear Nicola,
    The skirts arrived yesterday and I just finished trying them on and putting them on the skirt-rack.
    I just wanted to let you know how beautiful I think they are. I now have a total of 15 (!!) gorgeous skirts in my closet and I wear them almost every day. They make me feel feminine and sexy.
    Did you know my pupils held a poll last year what skirt they loved best? Fishy wishy won, and orange jungle came in a close second.
    I get compliments on the skirts all the time and wanted to convey some of that to you.
    I still remember that day on Camden market when I felt soooo down because I saw nice clothes everywhere, but they seemed designed for tiny little women and how, just when I had seen your skirts and wanted to turn away because I was convinced it’d be another something that wouldn’t fit, you turned to me and said: “don’t move, I’ve got your size.”
    You probably won’t remember that but I do and wanted to thank you for it. Hope to do loads more business with you! 🙂
    Good night,

  61. Hi Nicola,
    I have waited far too long to order more of your amazing work.
    I met you in Camden market a year ago and bought 2 dresses and a coat.
    I can tell you that I get loads of compliments every time I wear your designs and I always tell people about you and give them your info.

    I can’t thank you enough for creating your art works…. they are truly fabulous and make me feel so great when I wear them. I wish I could buy ALL of your collection!!
    Joan xx
