Excitement! Vintage at Goodwood OPENS TOMORROW!

12 August 2010


Vintage at Goodwood Festival starts tomorrow! Invented by Red or Dead founders Wayne and Geraldine Hemingway and located in the rolling Sussex countryside, it also goes by the name ‘The Festival of Our Lives’ and can only be described as 'multi disciplinary'. It sets out to celebrate British cool by combining the best of contemporary music, fashion, art, design and culture from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. It sounds like a very enticing mish mash to us.


Just two of the reasons we’re blowing the dust off our pink rollers and selecting the perfect shade of lipstick to match our cone-heeled shoes are – the Dr Martens shop, selling boots including vintage lines that are still produced in the original factory in Northamptonshire, AND on Saturday, a set from Noisettes, of whom the lead singer Shingai is the face of the brand, of course!

Louise Gray's amazing looks

Ooh and another thing. Even though we don’t think this qualifies as ‘vintage’ in the slightest we were properly stoked to find out that a few of our favourite London designers from the NEWGEN initiative will be showing collections there, because they’ve been chosen as ‘Future Vintage’. This means that their pieces are worthy of collector’s item status and worth snapping up and holding onto - quite right too.

Holly Fulton, David Koma, Louise Gray, Mary Katrantzou and Michael van de Ham have all been selected for the catwalk show. We cannot wait! Grazia will be there as well, Style Hunt-ing, and blogging and tweeting live! Come and join us! If you still haven’t got a ticket then hurry to: vintageatgoodwood.com
