Shop Spotlight: Rowena and their web store, RetroGlam.com!
Voted Best Women's clothing store in 2013, First runner up 2014 and Best Women's Clothing store plus fashion accessory store in 2015, we are proud to present our friends at Rowena in Edmonton!
Rowena has stocked a great selection of Heart of Haute for over 8 years consistently and with great enthusiasm- and we love them for it! I've been told some ladies will drive 3 and 4 hours just to shop at this amazing store, so keep that in mind if you happen to be driving through. There must be something to be said for a girl to travel for so long!!!

Personal love of vintage & classic clothing, midcentury furniture and the rockabilly/hotrod scene
We love our customers the most and the fact that we cater to XS-4XL. I love making women happy and feel pretty and the styles of the 40s & 50s are fantastic for that as they are very flattering and work on a lot of different body types.
Yes we are involved in many events such as charity events and donations, fashions shows including Edmonton Fashion Week and vend at car shows & tattoo conventions in our city. We do a pinups & pals for pets a few times every year also with donations to the Edmonton Humane Society as animals are very close to our hearts.
Car shows & tattoo conventions in our city
Our brick & mortar and website are pretty in sync. We have a little bit more product at the shop but for the most part the same style and feel. We carry both classic pinup stock and more alternative wear as we believe the modern pinup has many different faces and likes to rock whatever she feels that day!
We love Heart of Haute and have been customers since pretty close to the beginning. Heart of Haute is one of our top brands due to the flattering fit on all body types, variety of styles and amazing prints. We are very much in love with the new El Gato Collection also since there are a bunch of cat lovers here and the amazing mid century style print.
We are always improving and moving forwards. We truly love what we do and hope it shows! We would love people to follow our Facebook and instagram for specials, news and fantastic contests.
