File this under ‘Cool Stuff My Friends Do’ – my friend, the lovely Ellie Wood, recently launched her vintage fashion website Ellewood Vintage. Focusing on ’80s culture and the fashion that was prevalent at the time, each piece on the site was hand picked by Ellie. Ellie is one of my running friends and every time I see her out of Lycra, she looks amazing (she looks ridiculously hot in it too, to be fair) – her flair for picking vintage pieces is really something special. Ellewood Vintage began as a pop up vintage market stall that built up a loyal customer base.
‘Ellewood Vintage is all of it. Its the fashion, the music, the icons, the hair. It is the opulence, the grime, the political and social changes, the ethnic diversity, the culture. Ellewood Vintage is London, it is street style, it’s experimental, its youth. Ellewood Vintage is not just playing dress-up it is an attitude, a statement, a revolution, a challenge, a no rules way of life.’ says Ellie.
I know how hard she’s worked on putting this site together and launching her business. Massive congrats to Ellie for getting it going. If you’re a fan of vintage clothes and the ’80s or even if you’re not, head on over to the site and check it out.
