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? Championed by the likes of Alexa Chung and Kate Moss, vintage clothes offer the fashionably intrepid refreshingly different designs and quality clothing on a budget. 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.

Meet: Riz Maslen

Riz describes her style as an expression of her personality. “I am anti-brand; I like to mix styles together and mainly shop in second hand shops. I like my look to be a mixture of contemporary and vintage. I love 1920’s and 30’s styles and take inspiration from these eras.”
