Mother’s Day: Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair in Shoreditch

SEEN was quite honestly reeling when she staggered out of the last Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair in February. The sheer richness and beauty of the clothes, jewellery and accessories made her feel quite drunk.

If you didn’t know, this is THE fair that London’s stylists check out seeking inspiration for London Fashion Week. It’s a friendly and accessible event in the wonderfully vintage Courthouse Hotel and SEEN can’t recommend it highly enough. Just don’t take the housekeeping.

SEEN hears that plenty of fresh stock is promised in time for a spring wardrobe overhaul. Look out for pieces from the Victorian era through to the 1990s and designer labels including Dior, Chanel, Ossie Clark, Burberry and more. Carefully handpicked traders and a vibrant atmosphere are building Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair a reputation in their new neighbourhood. SEEN can attest to this. There’s a really friendly vibe and many fair-goers attend dressed up to the nines.

The hotel’s brasserie will also be open on the day for coffee, afternoon tea and cocktails, accompanied by a live jazz performer to top off the perfect day out. Don’t forget, the 26th March is Mother’s Day too, so for mums who really deserve to be spoilt, book a stay at the hotel with code CLERKENWELL17 to receive a special rate on rooms and complimentary access to the fair for a 5-star vintage experience.
Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair
Sunday 26th March 2017 from 11am until 5pm
The Courthouse Hotel
335-337 Old Street
Entry to the fair is £4 (£2 for students) on the door
