Tying-in to her new prime-time six-part Channel 4 show of the same name, journalist Dawn O’Porter is a woman on a mission – to ignite Britain’s passion for vintage fashion! We’re a nation obsessed with cheap, disposable clothing – but Dawn and her team of vintage style experts are here to show you why hunting for one-of-a-kind fashion gems is more exciting, better value for money, and a lot more fun. Are you fed up of the same old high street shops? Are you bored of your wardrobe? Do you fear arriving at a party and seeing someone wearing the same thing as you? Yes? Then it sounds like you’re in need of a modern vintage makeover! This Old Thing is here to show you that vintage shopping doesn’t have to mean rummaging through old cardigans at a car boot sale – instead, let Dawn introduce you to a world of beautiful and unique fashion treasures, and show you how to create a glamorous personal style that is all your own. Packed full of insider vintage fashion know-how, This Old Thing will take you through the history behind your fashion favourites (including the classic Little Black Dress…) advise you on how to find gorgeous vintage jewels of your own, and show you how a few simple tricks can turn an old item of clothing into a fabulous prized possession. Whether you’re a vintage virgin or a retro clothing addict, This Old Thing is an indispensable style handbook offering even more of the vintage hints, history and how-tos shared by Dawn in the new Channel 4 series.
