As well as the Frock Me! vintage fashion event, another London vintage fashion fair is coming up – Battersea Vintage Fashion Accessories & Textiles Fair (BVFF), which takes place on Saturday 2nd July.
The BVFF is now in its third year and was recently voted No.16 out of 100 in Vogue’s “Guide to the Greatest Shops off the Beaten Track”. It’s a magnet for celebrities and fashion designers, digging through the past for a bit of inspiration for 2006, not to mention some classic fashion pieces.
Stallholders come from all over the UK and Europe, with 65 stands specialising in everything from vintage buttons and trimmings to 18th century costume, 60s high fashion and costume designers for stage, film and TV. With over 700 visitors through the door last time, it might be as well to get there early.
If you can’t get there in July, other fairs take place on 29th October and 10th December.
