Old-world glamour that’s never old-hat – welcome to The Affordable Vintage Fair!
Founded in 2005 by former fashion [there it is again!] graduate, Selfridges personal shopper and celeb stylist Judy Berger our first fashion event took place in our homestead of Leeds in the giddy grip of 2005.
With an ethos of affordability, the formula for the fairs was a simple one; gather premiere vintage traders from all over the UK, check them for affordable, eclectic vintage stock and gather them together, if just for a day.
7 years and 30 cities later, affordable vintage fashion remains at the heart at what we do. From 20s beading to 80s brights, 60s shifts to 50s florals, our fairs, markets and kilo sales provide an affordable go-to place for anyone to shop old-world, be ye vintage veteran or not.
Curating 6 major festivals as well as events, the icing on the proverbial cake came in 2010 with an invitation from Red or Dead founder Wayne Hemingway to curate the marketplace at Vintage at Goodwood, subsequently curating Vintage at the South Bank [alongside this year's Vintage at Wilderness event.]
Featured in Vogue, Elle, Asos, Stylist, Red, Marie Claire and Company, recent years have seen Florence Welch, Daisy Lowe, Chloe Sevigny, Brix Smith-Start, Pixie Lott, Bip Ling and Jade Jagger come for a peruse [showing you never know who maight pop-up!]
