London Fashion Week takes place in mid-September, and EC1’s design district will have its own event to get you in the mood.
Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair takes place at the Old Finsbury Town Hall on 13 September (tickets £4). It features 50 traders selling classic designer outfits – like this 1970s Jean Varon dress. As well as being popular with the fashion loving public, the event also inspires stylists and editors. Looking further ahead on the fashion front, designer Hussein Chalayan’s first theatrical work is being staged at Sadler’s Wells on 28-31 October.
