Drapers joined the throng at the Vintage at Goodwood festival to help celebrate 40 years of British style.
The rain didn’t dampen spirits at the inaugural Vintage at Goodwood festival, which celebrated fashion and music from the 1940s to the 1980s over three festive days from August 13.
The brainchild of designer Wayne Hemingway, Vintage at Goodwood - held at the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex - featured a high street of vintage stores including a John Lewis store replete with knitting and sewing classes, hair and make-up parlours, an Oxfam store with Clothkit dressmaking kits
and pattern-cutting lessons from the University for the Creative Arts (UCA).
A plethora of vintage stalls surrounded the main drag, along with a ballroom, disco and a 1980s-style warehouse.
Visitors tended towards 1940s and 1950s-style outfits, but the lack of 1970s garb was offset by John Lewis staff in the Celia Birtwell for John Lewis autumn 10 range and House of Fraser’s sneak peek of its upcoming Biba collection.
