2 weeks to go til Vintage at Goodwood

In just two weeks, we will be at the first ever Vintage at Goodward Festival and we couldn’t be more excited!

Created by Wayne & Geradine Hemingway MBE and Lord March, Vintage promises to be a unique music and cultural event, bringing together and celebrating 5 decades of British cool – all held in the glorious surroundings of the Goodwood estate. Music, Fashion, Film, Art & Design.

Celebrating 5 Decades of British Cool

Wayne Hemingway shared with us The Future That He Chooses;  ‘The Future I choose is fitter, healthier, happier, less greedy, more liveable, more equal and beautifully designed!’

‘The future will be one where sustainability and kindness to all living things won’t be the option of the thinking few, it will become the normal way in which we all operate.’ Louise Kamara, Sustainability Curator for Vintage

We will be there as part of the Sustainable design worskhops. Come and find us:

Fri 11-1 and 3-6
Sat and Sun  1-4 and  5-7

It is an invitation for you to take part in Think Act Vote Refashioned. You can make your very own Think Act Vote one off piece and then have it photographed to be in our book, as well as a post online about how you went about your customisation.

You will be in very capable hands as the workshops will be led by Laura Metcalf and Alison Lewis who met on set of a channel 4 television pilot, they have been working together most recently on alterations and repairing vintage clothes at Clerkenwell Vintage Fair in London.
