What you'll do

Meeting at Kooks Restaurant, 56 Gardner Street in the North Lanes, Brighton, guests will have coffee/tea and cake while Susan gives a short talk about vintage fashion. Starting with a quiz sent out beforehand Susan will give a brief presentation about fashion history and why certain garments have survived to become vintage. There will be a brief discussion about what is considered as the current vintage trends and an explanation about the specialist shops that we will be visited on the tour. The shops have been hand picked to feature the owner/managers special interests. Guests will then visit 6 shops who have agreed to take part in the tour. Staff will be on hand to give specialist advice. Other shops of interest will be pointed out on the tour so that guests can visit them at a later date.

Where you'll be

We will be looking for treasure in the North Laine's of Brighton. We will visit 6 unique vintage shops that have been chosen for their varied merchandise, as well as the best selection of clothing types. Vintage clothing can be bought in bulk or hand-picked and the shops we will visit all have curated and styled their collections in a modern approach. The clothes are clean and well maintained.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 18 and up can attend.

More tips

Groups of eight people would be the ideal number although the tour would still run with 4. If its raining its wise to bring an umbrella its not far only 5 mins walk to the shops.
