a vintage affair

Shopping for all things old, meant that this issue we focused on vintage. With the 2012 Olympics on the horizon we hunted through all the local charity shops, vintage stores and car boot sales to find our Game On supplies, for all you sportswear fanatics to feast your eyes on. Bringing retro sportswear back into colourful style. Feeding our love for vintage resulted in a new hobby; attending vintage fairs. From Southampton to London we discovered what all the hype on vintage fairs was about. Apart from the art of shopping ‘old skool’ we found another new obsession, what or even who is our latest obsession? Larry Clarke of course! Exploring his work we admire the gritty realism conveyed in his photography we couldn’t love him more!

So celebrate all things old and feast your eyes on our first ever issue with the birth of ORIGINATE.

Enjoy! Editor In Chief: Jodie Brooks

Vintage Vs Retail?

22-year-old performing arts student Ami Cheesman likes to mix it up with a bit of vintage and high street. ‘I like to have a balance, but I find vintage clothing is a lot more versatile and unique which is important to me and what I look for when shopping’.

A VINTAGE AFFA Hidden treasures at the vintage fair

With everyone wrapping up in their granddad’s old jumpers and floating around in their nan’s ancient frocks I expected to loose my vintage fair virginity in a stuffed room with a few bargain hunter injuries, a coat hanger in the eye at the least. But nothing, I came out with my dignity and a bagful of bargains! With entrance fee being as little as £2 (£1 with an NUS student card), and almost every stall having a pound-anitem boxes, why would anyone miss this opportunity for some guilt free bargain hunting? I went on a vintage spree from Southampton to Winchester to London to see what the vintage fair hype was all about. Jodie Brooks


Vintage magazines, postcards, art, toys, accessories and patterns are priceless treasures!


Pieces that clearly represent the era in which they were created are true visions of vintage, gold dust!


Retro-Vintage! By this we mean vintage clothing that evokes an even earlier era than the one in which it was created.

Reasons Reasons to to have have yy A Make Over

Always wanted to look like a pin up girl? Vintage salons set up their stalls to offer you the chance to get your hair and make-up done vintage style! Services priced at around ÂŁ25, a bit steep? Watch and learn, take notes and practice at home!

Bringing Stylish Back

Step back in time and appreciate the history of fashion, embrace what your Nan used to wear and celebrate the stylish decades. I used to laugh at old photographs of my nan in her frilly frocks and Simon Cowell-high jeans, but now, like most of you will do too, I look up to these photographs, inspired by the flappers of the 20s and the club kids of the 90s. While Vintage pieces can compliment current trends, they can also set you apart from the mainstream with most vintage pieces being one-offs!

Cheap Chic

Go to the high street and get a dress for ÂŁ40 or, go to the vintage fair and get one for a tenner? This is a no brainer, not only is it guilt free for the fact your literally paying peanuts for pearls, but by recycling you are helping the environment, making use of old pieces that someone once cherished as much as you will.

your your own own Vintage Vintage Affair Affair Ditto Disaster

We all have to admit that no matter how much we love Topshop, we hate the guarantee that comes with each purchase, knowing anything you buy is one of many duplicates, at least two other people you know will have that top you just bought. So what better excuse to go to a vintage fair than to bag some unique, one of a kind pieces, which is after all what we all want.

Echo friendly

So vintage obviously tops retail. Not only will you find recycled, fashionable, quality clothing for pennies, but also due to the fact thrift shops are almost always run by charities, you are also donating to charity all in one purchase, a great way to achieve unique chic.

Fun Fair

Vintage fairs are not only a great day for shopping but they are also a celebration of the past, embracing vintage clothing, hair and make-up, music, art and pretty much anything that brings back memories of the fashionable moments gone by!

I am woman

No characteristic is sexier than intelligence, no woman more desirable than the thinking man’s crumpet. There is nothing more unpleasant than a woman whose love has been unrequited, for hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. There is no foretelling the way she will behave, she is very much her own woman. It is unpredictable how many people she will seduce, the scarlet woman.
