7th Anniversary Fair Preview

Olivia & I eating birthday cake

Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair would like to invite you to our birthday! On Sunday 15th May we celebrate our 7th birthday and just like vintage fashion, we only get better with age!

From day one of our fair, all our traders have been cherry picked to ensure we offer you the best quality and value in town and seven years on, that’s no different. Joining that list of excellent vintage traders for the first time at the fair, we have some new stalls to get excited about this May:

Sallie Ead is a well-respected name in vintage circles, and specialises in antique textiles, tribal fashion and early century pieces. As well as top condition menswear and womenswear, we’re excited to delve into the Heal’s fabrics she’ll be bringing with her.

Vintage Collective London brings a well-presented collection of womenswear that aligns with current trends. A particular love for patterns and prints make their rails stand out.

May Fair Prints Vintage Collective

From Milan to LA, We Love Vintage scour the globe for the best vintage womenswear and accessories they can get their hands on and offer it at very reasonable prices.

Just Vintage Clothing has a wide range of womenswear and accessories from the 1950s and 1960s but expect to find everything from 1930’s beaded necklaces to 1980’s oversized jumpers, all sourced from a life-long love affair with vintage.

May Fair 30s Dress

Split between London, Portugal and Sao Paulo, B Luxo Vintage has something special for boys and girls. For the gents, keep your eye out for utilitarian workwear and Victorian-era pieces, and ladies can browse through highly-fashionable garments from 1910 to the 1960s and 1970s.

Milliner Pip Hackett has long sourced vintage to inspire her designs which are sold in Harrods, Liberty and Harvey Nichols. Now she brings her collection of 1920s, 1930s, 1940s and 1950s dresses to the fair for you to find inspiration as well.

Remember the extravagant days of high end 80s and early 90s fashion? Adrianna joins us for 1 day only with an incredible ‘private collection’ of unworn 1980s and early 90s designer pieces such as Crolla, Alaia, Ozbek and Moschino gifted to her late sister, fashion editor of Vogue and Tatler in the 90s.

Last, but not least, Denise Liparoto, joins us with fabric, womenswear, handbags, luggage, shoes and jewellery. A particular eye for geometric jewellery and garments with a little drama to them (we’re eyeing up her Chinese silk jackets), you’re guaranteed to pick up an original find.
