The Goodwood Revival starts this Friday, and coincidently, it’s also Stirling Moss’ 81st birthday. Despite mixed opinions about its recent ‘sister’ event, Goodwood Vintage, held last month, the Revival is a well-established and much-loved event where almost all the attendees take the retro dress-code seriously and the result is a glorious display of fashions and mid-twentieth-century outfits and some excellent car racing as well.
We find the 40s and 50s as being the most popular costume choices,with American Gi Costumes for men and women topping our costume list of top sellers, with 1950s costumes not far behind. It always helps if the weather does it’s bit, but that’s in the lap of the gods! So the theme for today is retro-fads and fashions.
