Finds of the Fair 12th December 2010

For the Vintage Village Christmas Special Fair we were lucky enough to rope in a guest curator of the 'Finds' - fashion stylist Elizabeth Moss.  Not only has Elizabeth worked with stellar clients such as Dazed and Confused magazine, Topshop, pop star Kate Nash and Co-operative Designs, she is also a lecturer in fashion at the University of Salford.
