Diana Warren wasn’t a designer, but a fashion boutique located on the Promenade at Blackpool from the 1950s to the 1970s. It was one of the main outlets in the north of England at that time.
They used to sell Dior and other such designers, but removed the labels and sewed their own label in its place. One of the lesser-known designers used by Diana Warren was Robert Dorland — a London based designer of the 1950s and 1960s who made elegant bright and colourful daywear and sophisticated highly detailed eveningwear. Robert Dorland had his own label too.
They moved into the centre of Blackpool around the 1980s but seem to have now ceased to exist.
