The first UK vintage festival opens today

Let the treasure hunting begin

Vintage fans listen up: the first UK vintage fashion fair has opened today at the Swindon McArthurGlen Outlet store.

They've enlisted Angelo Caroli, owner of Italian vintage emporium A.N.G.E.L.O., to help curate both an exhibition of some of the twentieth century's most iconic styles and a pop-up store.

The 'Timeless Style' exhibition will showcase everything from the Gucci Bamboo bag and the Yves Saint Laurent safari jacket to pieces worn by Jane Fonda and Marilyn Monroe - you'll even be able to get a glimpse of the original Hèrmes bag inpired by and designed for Jane Birkin.

As for the store? Needless to say we're not talking musty, well-worn offerings here. Insted you'll be able to hunt through vintage treaures from Chanel, Hèrmes, Dior, Versace, Céline and more.

The festival will stay at the Swindon Designer Outlet unil 17 May before popping up again at the York Designer Outlet from 21 May - 7 June. Visit  for more details.
