Students shine at Fairtrade fashion show

Eyes up for vintage fashion at Wardrobe Clothes Agency.

On the trail of vintage fashion

As Christmas panic descends, how about heading away from the bustle of Hastings town centre for some vintage fare?

With a trail of shops stretching from St Leonards to the Old Town, Hastings has a diverse vintage scene that is well worth seeking out. Grace Vogiatzis shows the way.
