Vintage shopping at Alfies.

London Fashion Week starts tomorrow and it's promised to be a week filled with spectacular shows, fun parties and fine exhibitions. But for those of you who don't have time to make it to Somerset House or simply prefer vintage fashion over new designer brands, we advise you to make your way to Alfies for some of the best vintage shops that London has to offer.

With exquisite items from the 30s, 40s, 50s and early 60s The Girl Can't Help It offers you the ultimate vintage shopping experience. All unique, quirky, superbly made pieces are sourced mainly in the USA by the trained eye of owners Sparkle Moore and Jasja Boelhouwer. Unit G014-022, F016.

With a shop just across the road on Church Street Deborah Woolf Vintage has expanded into Alfies to make more space for her beautiful collection. From antique folk costume to avantgarde clothing and fabulous jewellery of the 60s and 70s and vintage clothing by Biba, Givenchy, Jean Muir and Cardin. Third floor, Church Street.

June Victor has been happily settled at Alfies for many years. She sells a wide range of stunning textiles from the 18th century up until the 1940s, encompassing costume, lace, ribbons and table and bed linen. June also has a stand at Vintage Modes in Grays, Alfies sister market. Unit S040,

A visit to Gwyneth Trefor-Jones's shop Persiflage is always a treat. Stock is ever-changing so you'll never know what you'll find. One thing's for certain, though - it'll be a bargain. Unit S006-008.

Tin Tin Collectables offers one of the fines selections of vintage clothing and accessories in the world. Period costume such as handbags, dresses, shoes, hats, gloves, costume jewellery, undergarments & lingerie. From the Victorian Era to the 1970s. Unit G038-042,
