A new business venture started in 2001 called Panache. It concentrated on mid to high end quality fashion footwear including brands such as Stuart Weitzman and Bruno Magli. The business opened as a boutique shoe shop in the Thameside village of Cookham, Berkshire. In 2004 the opportunity came along to expand the business with a second boutique in Marlow, Bucks which, to this day, is the base for our business. For a virtual tour of our shop please click on the "Our Shop" icon at the top the page.

In 2007 we launched our first website which we soon realised was a blessing in disguise as we entered into a recession. As foolish as it seems in the height of the recession we took over the shop next door in Marlow, adding a range of clothing from England, France and Denmark including brands Seasalt, MADO, Absolu, Ilse Jacobsen and Fred Sabatier.
