How much?

While global fashion designers advocate bold 70s prints as the big story or dazzling onlookers with jeweled party dresses and vertiginous heels, there’s plenty of inspiration in this town to bring your inner fashion designer out to play. This craft outfit channels vintage trends and a classic style that gives you a knowing sartorial edge when it comes to dressing up . Drop in to The Papered Parlour and get all the skills and materials you need to design and make a dress from scratch. The varied programme of workshops and events at this creative Clapham bolthole gets even the most scissor happy and needle shy humming with confidence. Aside from sewing, regular weekend classes and workshops include screen-printing, millinery and silversmithing. Its time to give those Pucci-esque curtains a new lease of life and strut your stuff. / Maeve Hosea
