We are happy to announce the arrival of the new Darling Autumn Winter collection 2012 2013 at Pink Flamingo. We have been stocking Darling for around two years and it has grown to become one of our most popular premium brands.
Darling Clothing is Ultra feminine, vintage inspired and quintessentially ‘English’, Darling’s unique brand identity is behind its success and popularity. Darling offers affordable luxury product with an emphasis on quality and attention to detail.
Darlings look and vision fits in perfectly with the vintage feel you will experience inside our boutiques this season.

Having launched in 2008, Darling has grown to become an award winning and exciting independent global women’s clothing brand.The Darling range is the vision of Nadia Moraes, the London based designer and entrepreneur who created the label. Nadia was inspired to launch her own collection by the lack of affordable, beautiful and stylish clothing available.
 Darling was voted womenswear Brand of the Year 2011 at the Drapers fashion Awards 2011. An amazing achievement that showcases just how far the brand has come, and the quality that customers can expect to receive from their clothing.
 Darling is a clear celebrity favourite and often seen in top fashion mags such as: Elle, Marie Claire and Grazia.Celebrity ‘Darlings’ include Kelly Brook, Anna Friel, Peaches Geldof, Fearne Cotton and Holly Willoughby. This season our Darling collection at Pink Flamingo oozes a pretty 70's vibe with a colour palette featuring: grey, tan and mustard highlighted with monochrome, emerald green and orange.The Rosana Dress is a beautiful short sleeved dress in mustard with a cinched in waist and a sweet floral design.
