The Camden Vintage Furniture Flea – Judy’s Vintage Fair 

 

Voted ‘BEST FAIR’ by the Vintage Guide to London & the go-to place for the old-world home, The VINTAGE FURNITURE FLEA returns to CAMDEN!

Atomic-prints to ornaments, cushions, crockery and glass – our homes are as retro as our wardrobes nowadays!

Doing away with expensive replicas and focusing on quality and affordability, the Flea provides an antidote; a celebration of mid-century living from the 50s and beyond, the event offers up TOP vintage traders, all offering furniture and homewares without costing the earth!

With traders coming from all over the UK, expect to see the eclectic:chairs, tables and more by giants like Ercol and G-Plan, barware and kitchenalia, textiles and fabrics, sewing machines, cameras, record players and radios, cocktail glasses and figurines, posters and magazines, lampshades, mirrors and more – from toys to telephones, ceramics to lighting, no box is left unticked!

A celebration of the KITSCH & THE COLLECTIBLE, prepare to be wowed! Offers and discounts, a sit-down tea-party and bargains galore- a Sunday peruse waiting for you in the heart of Camden.

For those wanting to get in first, we offer Earlybird from 10:30am, with general entry from 11:00am.

Celebrated in TIMEOUT, STYLIST and by the BBC, it’s a walk down memory lane [without counting the pennies]

Breakthrough in Fashion
Oct 26 @ 9:00 am – 5:30 pm

‘Breakthrough in Fashion’ is BACK, but this time, it’s much bigger and better than last year…

For this year’s event on October 26th, we’ve invited buyers from the UK’s leading fashion brands to meet to EVERY fashion designer in the room, including Missguided, JoJo Maman Bebe, ASOS, Fortnum & Mason, and more.

And our headline sponsor and exhibitor, London Ethnic will be putting on a competition which automatically enters each attendee into a prize draw where FIVE designers will be selected to showcase their work throughout the day on our runway.

The winner will receive a cash prize and other perks by London Ethnic, who will judge the competition.

Also confirmed to sponsor and exhibit is Fashion Pony, Joelson JD LLP, The Leather Satchel Co, Propeller Digital, Launchmetrics, i.LEVEL Software, Simmons Gainford, and more to be announced. We’ll have a dedicated networking room so you can meet your peers and make those all-important connections.

So What Is ‘Breakthrough in Fashion?’

BTIF is an event that supports and educates independent fashion designers who run their own businesses, or want to. If you’re a designer who is looking to build a successful fashion brand, our event will educate and equip you with the knowledge, skills and contacts you need to ‘break through’ as a designer.

Who Can Attend?

Fashion design graduates or emerging designers who are looking to set up their own brand, and established designers who’ve already had a head start in the industry. As long as you have a passion for improving your success as a fashion designer, this is the event for you.

And don’t forget to watch the video from last year’s event here, and check out the photos.
