Fun Stuff To Do

Pinterest fashion board

There are loads of cheap and cheerful ways to customise, upcycle and generally jazz up your clothing.  Tie dye some old clothes or customise T shirts by adding your own photograph or image or punk it up using studs on shoes, bags and jean pockets to give them a hard edge look.

Visit and sign up to Pinterest for free, it is a fantastic way to find  fashion and makeup images which you can group together to create your own look and build your own virtual fashion mood board.

Why not make your own jewellery? We love Bijoux Beads Shop and online store with a wonderful wealth of beads, gems, ribbons and much more to create some funky festival jewellery or a great hand made gift for a loved one.

Great Places To Visit

Vintage and charity shops are ideal places to trawl for retro clothes and accessories to create an edgy look that’s completely your own style. Style icons Kate Moss and Alexa Chung love vintage and second hand. Want to shop vintage in the comfort of your own home? Then visit Rok It, London.

The Fashion Museum in Bath is a place where you can discover more about British fashion through the ages, the world class collection includes historic and contemporary clothing. The City of Bath is great for shopping, with all the major high street brands plus little boutiques.

The Fashion and Textile Museum is a cutting edge centre for contemporary fashion, textiles and jewellery in London. Founded by iconic British designer Zandra Rhodes, the centre showcases a programme of changing exhibitions exploring elements of fashion, textile and jewellery as well as the Academy which runs courses for creative students and businesses.

The V & A of course is the best museum to visit to discover decorative art and design. With a permanent collection of over 4.5 million objects you’re sure to find displays to interest you! Plus, they run extremely popular and diverse exhibitions that let you get up close to extraordinary fashion collections from renowned designers.

Try and seek out one-off shops and boutiques that tend to cluster away from city centres. For example, The Custard Factory in Birmingham has masses of vintage and retro shops selling clothes and home furnishings or visit the Northern Quarter in Manchester for an eclectic range of shops and places to eat. Bicester Village is another great shopping destination filled with designer outlets and many bargains to be had!
