In my late teens I read the book ‘No Logo’ by Naomi Klein and I started questioning where things I bought were from and how they had been made. Unhappy with the answers I received I started buying most of my clothes from charity shops. Within a few years of this I bought my first vintage dress from Camden Market, a 1950s novelty print dress…

...Art Deco is certainly the style I lean towards aesthetically. I love the clean lines, use of asymmetry, and geometric aspects of art deco design and find it works well within my home environment. I find the clothes to be phenomenally well made and beautifully constructed. I particularly like the freedom of 1920s dresses, the use of lapped seams and interesting lines in 1930s designs, the tailored costumes of the 1940s and the fit and flare styles of the New Look…

...I think it’s really important to be comfortable with your look. That said, whenever I dress in vintage that requires it (i.e. 30s-50s) I always wear the correct undergarments as they make clothes fit much better. I wouldn’t be without a Triumph Doreen!
