Tracing the riviera’s rising popularity in the early twentieth century, you’ll discover the fashion, faces and places of this glamorous stretch of coastline and find out how the French Riviera became known as the ‘playground of privilege’.
Plus, for all you vintage fashion fans, the event includes a session with author, treasure hunter and Vintage Secret founder Naomi Thompson on how to buy, style and collect vintage.
