We love fashion and want to share our passion with you. In doing so we can help you create a wardrobe that suits your tastes and needs as well as making you feel the best version of yourself!


With a fashion orientated family, it is no surprise that owner Leonie was drawn to fashion from a very early age. However, the path is never so straightforward! Instead Leonie excelled at secretarial college, and eventually an entrepreneur in London. It was in London Leonie really found her passion for women’s boutiques, spending each Saturday shopping in London.

In 1993 Leonie (armed with her business acumen) returned to her hometown, Northampton and true calling... fashion! She opened Berties and has not looked back since!
