Classic Fashion At The Goodwood Revival


Last weekend we took a step back in time to enjoy the stylish delights and classic fashion at the Goodwood Revival Festival. Based only a few miles away from our Head Office, Goodwood Revival is an annual occasion that sees aviation, motor car racing and vintage fashion fans come together for three days to celebrate the vintage vehicles and the golden age of motor racing. The Revival celebrates all things vintage, from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang-esque motors, to pin-up girls and dapper men's styling.

Of course it wouldn't have been a British festival without the typically British weather but that did not dampen the spirits of the festival goers, many dressed in their 1940s + 50s outfits. Between all the classic fashion outfits, vintage stalls, shiny old motors and entertainment acts there was a number of classic car races and music from bands pulled right out of at 50s movie. Now poor old Tesco doesn't get much love on our blog usually, but it deserves a mention today.

The supermarket giant recreated a Sixties-style branch for the festival stocking dozens of products from the era. Even the check-out assistants were dressed up in vintage uniforms with hair and make-up styled making the whole experience as realistic as possible. Classic products on display include Colman's mustard, Opal Fruits, Marathon bars and Carnation evaporated milk, all in their old-style packaging.

Sophie, from our Design Team in Head Office headed to the festival and took a photo diary for us to share. Dressed in a halter-neck swing style polka dot dress she had made herself, she fully embraced everything the festival had to offer, including a spot of jiving!
