Archway may not seem the most likely of places to find that 1974 Chanel you've been craving, but if you can pull yourself away from the retro boutiques of Brick Lane you might just find a gem at this weekend's Vintage Fashion Fair. Held at the Byam Shaw School of Art this Sunday from 11, £3 will give you access to clothes, accessories and textiles dating from the 1800s - 1980s. As well as traditional vintage clothes collectors, as it's held at an offshoot of St Martin's you can expect those wonderfully arty types to have turned their hand to making their own brand new designs with vintage materials. Prepare yourself for the Xmas season and go and bag yourself something you know no-one else will be showing up in.
