Learn how to select vintage items, styling with the latest trends, and break away from fast fashion uniformity to create your unique outfit of the day!
Vintage clothing can be anything from second-hand items found in shops to clothing handed down by family members. Vintage clothing is often irreplaceable, with personal stories behind the items and their designs.
Fashion stylist Denise Ho will share tips on how to mix vintage clothing with modern items from your wardrobe to create different styles. You will also learn about vintage clothing, including tips on finding and distinguishing vintage items, how to utilise clothing sizes and tailoring, and maintenance techniques for different textiles. Our educators will bring participants to visit the Special Exhibition Madame Song: Pioneering Art and Fashion in China to explore the wardrobe of the iconic fashionista.
You are welcome to bring a vintage clothing item or showcase your vintage outfit on the day of the event. The instructor will invite participants to share the stories behind their vintage inspiration. Click on 'Register' to sign up.

A designer by training and stylist by trade with 20 years of experience, Rhode Island School of Design graduate Denise Ho has styled for many magazines, celebrities, and major brand campaigns. In the past eight years, Denise has also worked with sustainable fashion brands and nongovernmental organisations to design environmentally conscious garments that follow zero-waste and upcycling techniques, using recycled fabrics.
