I like nothing more than a spot of vintage shopping - that search for the perfect piece, the thrill of actually finding it and then imagining who wore it, when and where ....
A new exhibition by the Yorkshire Fashion Archive at Salts Mill in Yorkshire plays on this theme with a display of treasured outfits - everything from wedding dresses and going away outfits to homemade party dresses and Burberry trenches.
All the clothes exhibited have been either worn or made in Yorkshire with both wearers and items equally represented. With the county's strong link to the textile industry [hello school history lessons] it's no surprise there is such a wealth of material on offer. If you're in the area, or anywhere nearby, it's well worth a visit.
Dress Rehearsal: An Exhibition of Garments from the Yorkshire Fashion Archive runs until May 15 at Gallery 2, Salts Mill, Saltaire. For more information go to www.yorkshirefashionarchive.org
