VV Brown's fashion plans

22 January 2009


OK, first things first... in case you don't know the name VV Brown, here's a compact VVB guide: she's a super-cute 24-year-old multi-instrumentalist who creates doo wop indie (that's really poppy, catchy indie with a kind of '50s vibe), she's currently supporting the Ting Tings on tour, jump-started her career by performing a stint on Jools Holland, is influenced by anything from the B52s through to Aretha Franklin – and what Grazia loves even more than her ‘Crying Blood' tune getting stuck in our heads, is her obsession with all things sequinned. Actually, we reckon she'd give Pat Butcher a run for her money when it comes to sparkly fashion (fact: she adores master designers of the sequin dress, Ashish). VV's style on and off stage is pretty eclectic and fun, and she likes to pick up unique pieces – so imagine our excitement on hearing her plans for the fashion world... Using her style maven's eye, she's opening an online vintage store in April with her BF Tari, called Ten Vintage. You'll be able to catch some cool new designs as well as customised pieces. And if that wasn't exciting enough, VV's got some secret plans for London Fashion Week. Hmm, singing for the Ashish show perhaps? We'll keep you posted.
