WerkHaus Margate is a shop and online retailer selling modern ethical non-seasonal womenswear, accessories and curated vintage pieces. Located in the heart of Margate’s Old Town, WerkHaus was founded by Rae Jones, an accessories & footwear designer and trend forecaster, and Cynthia Lawrence-John, a fashion director, magazine editor, stylist & costume designer.

WerkHaus’ distinctive and guiding ethos is to offer women the clothing that has the utilitarian traits more traditionally found in military, sport and working menswear. Emphasis is on providing clothing that’s practical and long lasting as well as flattering and stylish. The Werkhaus aesthetic and quality standard harks back to times when clothing was necessarily built to last, used natural fibres and kept practicality and functionality in mind.
