Vintage fashion is everywhere right now, going hand-in-hand with the retro-inspired fashions on the high street. The great thing about it is that you can pick up individual pieces at very cheap prices – if you know where to look.
And a list of places to look can be found in Shopping For Vintage by Funmi Odulate. It offers a look at the work of over 70 leading designers from the last 120 years, key fashion pieces from each decade, tips on the kind of places to find it and how to haggle down a price when you do.
There’s also an exhaustive list of the names and addresses of vintage outlets all over the world, as well as vintage fashion fairs, websites, auction houses and flea markets.
The book is available now in hardback, priced at under £8 at Amazon.
