On Saturday 30.07.2011 I got a fantastic chance to engage into the legendary Vintage Festival, organised by Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway at SouthBank Centre. The festival celebrated musical, fashion, art, design, film and cultural origins from 1920s to the 1980s. The SouthBank has been transformed into a Vintage Wonderland where I could see clubs, dance lessons, film, bands but first of all lots of vintage retailers, fashion, art and design. There were also places for makeover and workshops. It was such an amazing experience seeing all of those happy people, beautifully dressed up, moving back to their favourite eras. Hope that the pictures below will bring the mood of that spectacular event.

And then I stopped by some wall full of great posters made by Roy Newby with some interesting messages...

Then I went to some vintage fair and found those pretty pieces...
