For 55 years, several members of the Makin family have carefully selected beautiful designer garments and accessories to be re-sold in their stores. Under the direction of third generation Makin, Nicola, the company has undergone a modern reinvention.

Nowadays, with shops on Prestigious King Street West in Manchester and on Market Street in Altrincham, the Dress Agency has been transformed by the staff’s meticulous item selection process, once likened to the X Factor auditions! ‘Our stock is gained via a mixture of out-sourcing and customers who drop their item into store. Our receptionists inspect the items rigorously and if they reach our expectations we determine a selling price. We pride ourselves in offering the most coveted selections.’

Everyday Elite’s offerings are different as the turnover of branded goods from the likes of Chanel and Celine, is fast. Also available are high-end high street brands such as Whistles, LK Bennett and Cos meaning anyone can find a unique item to suit their budget.

Most of our stock has probably only been worn once or sometimes not at all! Popular with Manchester celebrities, whether soap stars or WAGs, these clients trade in their expensive designer pieces once they have been seen wearing them in the press, allowing others to enjoy them.

This agency is both Elite in name and in nature!
