Seda’s fascination with antiques and vintage fashion began at a very young age when she would go to Spitalfields Market and admire the collection of stalls way back in the 90’s! Seda and her sister Esra grew up in Istanbul surrounded by a family line of Tailors. "We would seek out the best bargains in Turkey and the UK, our collection of vintage garments span ten years."   Seda wanted to continue the journey and started her brand 'Lost Vintage' last year, selling hand picked, quality, genuine vintage clothes and accessories in a selection of markets, fairs and online.  Carefully selecting a variety of items, ranging from the 30's to the early 90s. You can find one off pieces for a very affordable price!  Esra and Tanya will be launching a new brand presenting quality, bold, colourful textiles sourced from Turkey, tailored the old fashioned way into simple, well fitted cuts, creating modern but timeless, beautiful clothing for women.

BE; Journalist and stand-up comic Samantha Lyster has been collecting vintage for over 20 years, back when it was called second-hand.  Last year she embarked on a world tour performing at comedy venues under her stage name Kitty Kavanagh and shopping for the most fabulous dresses.  The rails will be filled with British vintage, including a silk Harvey Nicholls jacket, a Kangol fascinator and a Liberty waistcoat, but nestled among the treasure are items from America, Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.   Gems include a 1970s era Lanvin dress from L.A, a 1980s era dress by Australian designer Leon Cutler picked up in Sydney and a 1960s shift dress from the only vintage store in Siem Reap, Cambodia.   "I also have a fabulous Marie Antoinette period costume gown that I will be selling and several of the dresses were photographed for the Japanese fashion magazine Transparent."

S present Jumble and Pearls limited editions: Strawberry & Creams, Mojito, Lemon Curd & Creamcheese & Chocolate Honeycomb..."I decided on strawberries and cream as they're by far one of my favourite things about the London summer.  The mojito cupcakes were chosen because I love a nice cold moijito on a hot day and the infusion of lime and mint is always amazing!  Lemon curd with creamcheese never really fails to get people excited, including myself. And the honeycomb is something new I'm trying as ive loved it since I was a kid!"
