Opening as an online store in may 2010 from just a bedroom, we've now got 5 international offices, a cult of 'cb dolls' worldwide (those are our gorgeous clients), a huge social media following and our own in-house designed pieces (that you won't find anywhere else!). House of CB is quickly becoming an international brand.

Our style is inspired by iconic women, killer curves and everything empowering. when you rock cb, everyone will know about it. We're all about being kick-ass and having fun.
