There’s finally a chill in the air and Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair is back this Sunday just in time for the start of ‘sweater weather’. We’re unwrapping our finest collection of hats, boleros, capes, scarves, boots, and more from all your favourite decades so you can snuggle up in style this autumn.
As usual our handpicked traders offer 100% authenticity and top quality, with a few new names joining the roster.
Loaf Lifestyle joins us with unusual pieces to wear and exotic homeware. From antique textiles, kilims, harem cushions, runners, quilts and tribal dresses sourced from nomadic people in Central Asia, it’s sure to add warmth to your winter.
Paula Roboredo Rondon, proprietor of vintage fashion shops B.luxo in São Paulo and London returns with rare, collectible mid-century pieces for men and women. Expect to find tour jackets, kimonos, workwear and Victorian womenswear.
Fresh from Goodwood Revival, Just Vintage Clothing returns to our autumn and winter fairs with plenty more 1940s and 1950s womenswear and pretty accessories.
Smashing Things are a firm favourite with collectors, dealers and designers for their 1920’s feather coats, 1930’s beaded two-pieces, 1980’s Prada button dresses, and other glam garments. Owner Vesper Ward has been a vintage dealer for over 20 years so you can count on them for an expert eye.
Decorating our halls with rare posters from cult movies, theatre productions and band memorabilia, Nick Reed’s collectible artworks are looking for a good home.
American lingerie designer Jean Pacella has broken free from her corsets to create a range of beautiful headwear, bags, jewellery and bridal accessories from reclaimed vintage trinkets. We’re delighted to welcome her to the fair with her truly unique creations.
So come inside and warm up with a cup of tea, live music and homemade cakes in our tearoom before treating yourself to the autumnal wardrobe you’ve always dreamed of.
What’s more, when you join and share our Facebook event you’ll be entered into a draw for a chance to win a £50 shopping voucher to spend on Sunday at the fair.
