Sadie Doherty

Age: 23

Occupation: Works at The Vintage News (www.vintagenews.tv) and part-time milliner's assistant

I started jive classes when I was 17 and would sometimes wear a full skirt and perhaps a quiff and a high ponytail if I felt like making a bit of an effort. After a couple of years I started dancing lindy hop and that’s when I really got into dressing the part - first the hair, then the make-up and the last thing to go ‘full-time’ were the clothes.

I love how I feel when I put together an outfit that flatters my shape and being able to pay tribute to past styles, even if with just a flick of eye-liner or an original brooch. I feel that everything that surrounds vintage - the music, dancing, clothes, and etiquette just suits my personality. I’ve even been told Sadie is ‘a good vintage name’ so I guess it was meant to be!
