Fashion guru Wayne Hemingway to curate special Preston Guild Vintage Festival
One of Lancashire’s most famous designers will be putting on a special Vintage festival for the Preston Guild.
Wayne Hemingway, who founded the fashion label Red or Dead, is behind the Vintage Guild showcase which will run for two days in September.
It will celebrate the best of the city’s art, fashion, film, food and music at various venues around the city.
Hemingway, who visited the University of Central Lancashire recently to encourage students to get involved with the festival, said he wanted to utilise the talent on the city’s doorstep.
He said: “We want to celebrate the things that are important in life to those in this city and leave a legacy behind. Whilst I and my wife Gerardine will co-curate the festival, the vision and drive will come from local people themselves. The event will need hundreds of volunteers to help to organise it.”
Stefano Bragagnini, a 19-year-old interior design student, said: “Wayne Hemingway is truly inspirational and it’s exciting to think that I have the opportunity to work on a creative venture with him right here in Preston.”
The festival will take place on the 1st and 2nd of September. Anyone interested in volunteering for the Vintage weekend can submit their details on the Guild website.
