Fashion Galore: Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair Celebrates its 8th Birthday

SEEN’s personal favourite, the Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair, takes place on Sunday 7th May, marking eight years since its founding and making it one of the longest-running and most respected fairs in London.

This year is a particularly poignant one, as the fair has moved to a new venue, the fabulous Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch, and takes on a new, more fashion-focussed approach.

Recognising the need for London to have a premium vintage event selling pre-loved designer labels such as Chanel, Dior, Burberry, and Vivienne Westwood, as well as genuine pieces in good condition from little-known vintage brands, Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair is establishing itself as the go-to fair for fashion lovers. Already a top destination with industry insiders including design houses, stylists, costume designers and more, our aim is to further cement ourselves as an essential service to the industry, with the important role that vintage plays within it, while also creating an enjoyable shopping experience for London’s style enthusiasts.

Fair-goers can expect to find 50 traders selling womenswear, menswear, accessories and textiles dating from the Victorian era to 1990s at the Courthouse Hotel which will be serving lunch, afternoon tea and cocktails throughout the day, accompanied by a five piece Prohibition Era jazz and blues band – The Volstead Orchestra bringing the sounds from the Speakeasies of the 1920’s and 30’s.
