Deborah Woolf to join the judges at The Goodwood Revival 2013

For the third year running, vintage loving Londoners have nominated and voted for their favourite vintage businesses in The Vintage Guide to London’s Vintage Awards.  Deborah Woolf Vintage was runner-up in the ‘Best Designer Vintage shop’. The final round saw 1,800 individual votes from the public.  Deborah Woolf Vintage, open 5 years this month, has become a destination for collectors, stylists and designers looking for inspirational vintage fashion.

A happy customer wears 1960s Diorling suit for Christian Dior in black and white geometric print cotton. 1960s enamel mesh handbag with white lucite clasp. 1960s Bally Suisse silver leather shoes with block heel. 1960s white crochet gloves. 1960s white enamel Trifari choker and a pair of 1960s old stock sunglasses.
With a vintage boutique on Church Street plus a studio archive within Alfies Antique Market, Deborah’s extensive fashion history knowledge and great skill at helping clients find what flatters, ensures any outfit will look authentic and chic. Stock ranges from 1900s to 1970s, with many items from British, European and American fashion designers of the 1960s and 70s with emphasis on British Boutique and print designers, such as Liberty,  Biba and Ossie Clark. Deborah stocks a small range of vintage menswear and accessories. She currently has two rare original 1950s and 1960s Drape jackets for sale, for the Teddy Boy and early Beatles look. She also has a range of Victorian to 1960s baby and childrenswear.

The Goodwood Revival is the worlds most popular historic motor race meeting, the only event of it’s kind to be staged entirely in a nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s. It holds a dedicated Ladies Day as well as the daily Best Dressed competition for both Ladies and Gents. This year Deborah and her husband William have been asked to join the expert judges at The Goodwood Revival  ‘Best Dressed’ competition. Regulars to all three days of The Goodwood Revival for several years, Deborah and her picture frame maker husband William have both previously been short listed in the event’s Best Dressed competition. 

The Best Dressed competition is run by the Creative Director of Men's File Archive Nick Clements and fashion photographer Matt Hind. Nick and Matt will be at The Goodwood Revival again this year picking out candidates for the coveted ‘Best Dressed’ award. Those that look the part and embrace the spirit of dressing up with √©lan and sophistication will be invited to be photographed in the Men's File on-site studio. Prizes will be awarded by the judges each day for categories to be confirmed.
