25th edition of Clothes Show Lives is just around the corner and Harper & Lewis Vintage is going to be there again! Vision Village, heart of the show – that’s where you’re gonna find us.
It all started in 1989 in London on the back of then famous television show which was designed to get the general public into high fashion. Since 1990 the event has been held every December at Birmingham’s NEC. This year we are all going to celebrate its 25th birthday.
The Clothes Show turned out to be very influential in the fashion’s world. Designer Christopher Kane said “The Clothes Show made it feel more relevant, and also more accessible to the working class because of all the high street stuff. It definitely made me want to go study fashion at Central St Martins.”
Young new talents have frequently been hunted at the show by established model agencies – supermodels Naomi Campbell, Jodie Karen and Caprice have all walked the Fashion Theatre Catwalk. Caprice said “I’ve never experienced anything like it – Taking to the stage in front of 6,000 screaming people. It was amazing!”
The countdown to the UK’s largest and most talked about fashion and beauty event of the year is on and Harper & Lewis Vintage is getting ready to join the event this year again. You will be able to find our massive stand which is being designed and built at the moment. We are so excited!
