  Vintage clothes Saturday 12 January 2002  
Many people enjoy rooting around in jumble sales and Oxfam shops for a chance sighting of that full length fake fur coat or 60s mohair suit.

But the fashion for wearing second-hand clothing received a boost recently when Gwyneth, Winona and Madonna all turn up at awards ceremonies in clothes their grandmother's might have worn. But of course nowadays it's not called second-hand - it's vintage.
Next Wednesday Vogue is holding a grand jumble sale of vintage clothes donated by fashion designers and celebrities. It's in aid of The Fashion and Textile Museum and the Red Cross.
Vogue's editor Alexandra Schulman talks to Jennifer Chevalier.
