Sue Gannon-Kendrick Owner/Operator of Mooshy La La

In short…. “Aesthete & purveyor of treasure & twinkling sparkly old things. Mother. Lover of French bulldogs”

In long …..”My work history has always involved display & presentation, a side of retail I really enjoy! Starting in the fashion industry in the early seventies, I trained as a Visual Merchandiser, (Known then as a “Window Dresser”) for a chain of small independent fashion boutiques.

This was a time before the high streets were dominated by chains of fashion stores when department stores did not really cater for the younger market. I would travel to London from my hometown Liverpool on regular buying trips, exploring, always looking for new trends & inspiration! A very exciting time in the fashion industry.

My promotion & retail skills then took me into another sector of Fashion – this time in the Prestige Perfumery/Cosmetic Industry, I was lucky enough to work for Christian Dior and even luckier to train in Paris for this Iconic Couture house!

I continued in the Cosmetic/Perfumery world, working with wonderful companies: Chanel, Givenchy, YSL, Jean-Paul Gaultier, to name a few, until the early 90’s. I had started my family at this point and became a full-time mum to my two children, in their early years.

I now felt the time had come to take my career down a different path & qualified as an Interior Designer, I adored the history/antique side of this profession –  my preferred styles being Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Bohemian & Gothic of course with added Glam.

With a passion for antique/vintage clothing & jewellery! I have gone full circle and now have my own little Vintage Fashion Boutique, & find myself selling items that I might have sold & worn over 40 years ago!

My biggest inspiration has been BIBA, which I was fortunate to experience first hand before its closure in 1975, this magnificent emporium influenced my own little vintage bazaar.”

Mooshy La La

Mooshy La La has now been open for over four years and is going from strength to strength, The ethos being “Bohemian Glamour” which encompasses many eras & styles. I love the Deco era & have collected some beautiful authentic 20’s/30’s pieces, yet I also have a soft ‘nostalgic’ spot for those early seventies, Ossie Clark, Biba, Bill Gibb, etc. This ‘Glam Rock’ ‘Boho’ era has enjoyed a huge revival lately!

I sell authentic vintage from Victorian, right through the 20th century, but I also keep a small amount of ‘pre-loved’ contemporary items, that are in keeping, and are sympathetic to that “Bohemian Glamorous” feel. I am always on the look-out for ‘mainstay’ timeless pieces that will stay in your wardrobe forever. I have no qualms about mixing vintage with contemporary, to create that individual style which exudes confidence!

“If you do get the opportunity to visit Mooshy La La here in Liverpool, England,  you will be encouraged to browse to your heart’s content  and share my passion, in this little oasis of nostalgic opulence!”

I host small charity events at Mooshy La La from time to time, which has become quite popular with my regular clients.                       (above: BIBALALA event)& Coco Chanel event COCOLALA)

“Wondering where the name ‘Mooshy La La’ comes from???  … it’s the nickname of my daughter Misha Lily …..when she was born, my son, Lloyd, (then aged 4) decided on his own variation of the name ….hence…..

Mooshy La La!

I adore the Deco period & I thinkMooshy La La is a perfectly frivolous name that conjures up the image of a coquettish Ziegfeld Flapper of those ‘Jazz Age’ days!!!!”
