This weekend MAD and I spent a very enjoyable afternoon pottering around the Vintage Festival on London’s Southbank. Geraldine and Wayne Hemingway (of Red or Dead fame) started the Vintage Festival last year at Goodwood. The combination of retro music, fashion and culture was a roaring success and this year they decided to move it to London. Taking place over three days at the Festival Hall, pass holders could learn to dance, enjoy a makeover, see live performances, exclusive DJ sets and catwalk shows, or visit one of the 10 specially created night clubs. There was also lots of free entertainment, specialist food stall and vans, and a great vintage market.
We went along to the free vintage high street and found a great mixture of interesting vintage clothing, furniture and haberdashery, including the new range of Horrockses bed linen (more on this soon). It was great to see so much creativity, unique products, fantastic hairstyles and amazing outfits! Next year, we will be buying passes, getting out our winkle pickers and back combing our hair!
