The Vintage Wardrobe; A treasure trove of fashion marvels
People often assume that London is the best place for vintage shopping clearly they have never heard of The Vintage Wardrobe.
An online closet full to the brim with one off wonders and pieces you haven’t seen since the 60s (either on yourself or on your mum) The Vintage Wardrobe will undoubtedly provide you with an unique piece you will keep forever.

Whether you are a grunge Goddess inspired by Courtney Love and Drew Barrymore or a 70s siren who loves the fashion of Farrah Fawcett and Jane Fonda you must check out Vintage Wardrobe for some old school styling.
Although based in the North West products are available to buy online and Sameera often travels to vintage fairs across the North West, so keep your eyes peeled for the Vintage Wardrobe you may be able to snap up your own retro fashion gem. Sameera also states that every care is taken when choosing which products she picks; “I source pieces for The Vintage Wardrobe all over the country, and I'm very particular about quality and wearability, to ensure that I provide amazing vintage pieces to other vintage lovers.”
What is also great about Vintage Wardrobe is that the website is simple to navigate, you can sort by product type, cost and even era. So if you are perhaps invited to a 80s night out pop over to the Vintage Wardrobe website for the perfect party staple which you could modernize for every day wear or even keep it old school in head to toe vintage.

British fashion designer Patrick Grant has designed a menswear line for Debenhams which will be launching in September, ready to buy online and in all stores for winter 2013.
The Savile Row tailor has a strong fashion CV, being the majority shareholder for Norton & Sons as well as their subsidiary ready-to-wear company E. Tautz & Sons. He is also a judge on the BBC 2 show The Great British Sewing Bee and a blogger for GQ.com.
Now for 2013, Grant has partnered up with Debenhams to create a 70-piece male clothing line which includes both formal and casual wear, and will appeal to both the young and older generation.
Debenhams has paired up with several male fashion designers in the past including Henry Holland, Jasper Conran and Jeff Banks, and now Patrick Grant will be following in their stylish footsteps to generate a fashion line which appeals to all.
The prices will range from £14 to £299, and with this we can expect a high quality collection and as with the majority of Debenhams’ clothes a great price for what you will receive.
Grant’s pieces will fall under the title of Hammond & Co and will therefore see the resurrection of the Hammond & Co tailoring label – a prestigious tailoring company which was at its peak in 1776 and much loved by the men of the Royal Family.
Having made his way onto many best dressed lists as well as being the winner of menswear designer section at the British Fashion Awards 2010, Patrick Grant is most certainly a great addition to the Debenhams team and it’ll be exciting to see what he brings to the table come September.
