Making Vintage Accessories

Choosing perfect accessories is the essential finishing touch to any outfit and can make the most ordinary ensemble look special.

Taking inspiration from the fashions of the 1920s through to the 1960s, there is something to suit everyone. Learn to re-create 1920s Art Deco elegance, 1930s Hollywood glamour, 1940s utility and make-do, 1950s feminine and flirty or 1960s mod and chic. Each era includes a unique selection of bags, hats, scarves, collars, belts, gloves and textile jewellery embellishments.
