Well it's finally almost upon us, the much anticipated vintage cocktail of fashion, music, film, art & design.... that's right, it's just three weeks until Vintage at Goodwood.
Unfortunately (and trust us, we've cried about this) LMD won't be able to make it due to other commitments, but hell, that just means YOU will have to go and have our share of fun as well as yours...!
If you haven't yet heard of Vintage at Goodwood (doubtful), allow us to enlighten you... to quote their (amazing) website, VAG is...
"...the first of what will be an annual music and fashion led celebration of creative British cool from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s, featuring the leading DJs, bands, collectors, purveyors of vintage clothing and vintage vinyl from each decade, as well as contemporary bands and brands inspired by Britain’s rich creative and cultural heritage."
No matter which decade you idolise, no matter who your vintage icons, no matter what your style, you'll find music, dancing, films, food, fashion and inspiration a plenty. Set in the South Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in West Sussex, close to the beaches and harbours, where better to join forces with fellow vintage lovers for a weekend (or even just a day) of retro fun and frolics.
Now, just because we can't be there, doesn't mean we can't style your bad selves for the occasion! So here are a few of our top LMD picks to wow the crowds...
