VA x Topshop Master Class, this weekend . . .

Vintage Academe – Topshop - LFW Event

To celebrate London Fashion Week, Vintage Academe will be curating an installation at Topshop’s Oxford Circus store. The installation will showcase the most important pieces from our collection of 20th century fashion. The display will range from 20s Vionnet and Chanel, through to 90s Alaia and Herve Leger.

“We have long admired Vintage Academe and are delighted to be able to offer it’s unique archive of fashion history to customers. This exhibition offers the perfect balance to the contemporary designers with whom we collaborate on a regular basis.”

The Master Class
On 19th and 20th February, VA founder Clare Nicholls and VA Curator, author and fashion historian Judith Watt will be in-store to give the history behind some of the clothes and the designers who created them. Visitors will be able to try on some of the pieces – with vintage-styling advice from Topshop Style Advisors – and some pieces will be available to buy.

“VA are delighted to be a part of Topshop’s London Fashion Week celebrations. This is the perfect opportunity for VA to open our archive to Topshop’s fashion-savvy customers, and establish ourselves as Europe’s finest luxury vintage retailers.”
-Clare Nicholls, Founder of VA
