I recently popped into this very interesting and unusual shop. A ring on display caught my eye, the owner a was lovely lady, very charming & helpful I decided to purchase the ring while looking round at the beautiful handmade clothes- very tempting, will be back again soon.. I've had so many comments on my ring..

My mum ended up dragging me into this shop as she was drawn to the ethnic print fabrics. I was less than enamored by the poorly sewn clothes which consisted of several mismatched scarfs sewn together. We got roped into a long conversation with the owner in which she slated black people, Americans, Eastern Europeans, anyone who watched reality television... More

If you don't get the owner's sense of humour, that's your own lookout. But the clothes are amazing, they last and my wife gets compliments and is asked where she got her coat all the time. People come up to her in the street to ask. We always tell them, Maribou in Notting Hill. If you are American though, pretend... More

The Fashion Sirens and hot pink store front beckoned me to this one of a kind shop and I was anything but disappointed. The handmade clothing is what any fashionista needs in her closet. Ginny, the owner/designer is as fabulous as her one of a kind creations. Any of Maribou's pieces will take your closet from drab to fab. If... More

Having just bought two items over the years from this shop I felt compelled to write a review after reading the negative responses on here. Firstly it is a different experience to your average, 'the customer is always right' store. The owner is bonkers, but is friendly and such an eccentric delight if you are respectful to her and what... More

I stopped into Maribou in full tourist scrubby clothes with an equally scrubby boyfriend. I fell in love with the handmade dresses their and enjoyed talking with a very quirky older woman who owned the store. She was very funny and not afraid to say what she thought. I felt no pressure to buy a dress that was about $300... More

I bought a dress for 40 pounds and two strange hats for 30 a couple. All the clothes are handmade by the owner which is extroverted, kind but a bit weird. I heard from her that if the clothes don't fit your suitcase, she can send them wherever you want for free. I really enjoyed this shop. Hope to come... More

I visited this store yesterday and have never been so humiliated in my life. I did give her a piece of my mind but have decided to lodge a complaint or do something about this very rude, extremely obnoxious lady at the store who has no reservations from making insulting remarks around race, upbringing and has the cheek to shoo...

I visited Maribou Unique for the first time yesterday and was impressed by their gorgeous and unique clothes and accessories, but was appalled by their customer service. During the first trip to the shop, I browsed for almost an hour before settling on a jacket, hat and small bag -- for a total of 120 quid. I told the owner... More

I bought my coat from Maribou on my honeymoon in 1992, and still wear it and still get the most compiments on this gorgous, red velvet, black trimmmed coat. I dream of this store and long to go back.

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
