Axfords are closing

The well-known manufacturer of ready-made corsets in the United Kingdom are closing as of 17 April 2019. Axfords has been in business since 1880 and managed by Michael Hammond for the last 30 years, and he will now go into a well deserved retirement.

They will not produce any new corsets, but offers 50% discount on exsiting stock. This has resulted in a huge number of orders, and they have temporarily shutdown their website to handle those orders.

In 1990 they moved from Vauxhall Bridge Road in London to Brighton, and later it became a global business.
