Channel 4 programme ‘This Old Thing’ has sparked a resurgence of interest in vintage fashion, helping unsure fashion lovers broaden their shopping horizons. Presenter Dawn O’Porter has brought Grays under the spotlight by wearing – and dressing her protégés in – several outfits from Vintage Modes at Grays. As a regular shopper at Vintage Modes herself, she also featured us as a vintage shopping destination in her book ‘This Old Thing’. Thanks Dawn, we’re always glad to have someone looking fabulous in our collections!
