    As summer comes to a close, The Antique and Vintage Wardrobe is busily curating stock for the first fair of the season. The Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair opens its doors on Sunday 9th September at 11.00am and is not to be missed. With 50+ of the very best vintage dealers in the country, it is the perfect place to find those unique items that will make you stand out from the crowd this winter. If you find an item you love but it doesn't quite fit, fear not, as the extremely talented Jonathan Loe from Faustus London will be on hand to alter items so that they fit to perfection.

    The Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair is conveniently located in the Freemasons Hall, 60 Great Queen Street, just a quick walk from Covent Garden or Holborn tube stations.  There is also free parking in the surrounding streets.
