Vintage fashion – especially from the 1940’s/50’s or the 1960’s/70’s – has become increasingly popular over the last few years. This unique experience will give you the chance to learn about fashion history and create your own individual look.
London has long been one of the style capitals of the world and is home to a very active vintage fashion scene. Whether you prefer 1950’s Burberry raincoats or the colourful mini dresses of the 1960’s, you’ll find you have a lot to choose from during this experience. Find out how you can avoid the high street shops selling the same types of clothes and really develop a style which is unique to you. And vintage is not just for the ladies. In London there are many places specialising in vintage fashion for men.
During this experience, you will visit a famous fashion and jewellery collection to discover how styles developed in the past, markets with stalls selling old clothes, costume jewellery & accessories, vintage boutiques and even charity shops with vintage & designer sections. You will find bargains and go home with one or more vintage outfits really reflecting your personality.
All Excel English experience courses also include 15 hours per week of English in multinational classes.
