A NEW Vale vintage shop has teamed up with Cotswold model Emily Carenza to showcase its goods just a few months after opening a shop in Evesham’s High Street.

WTF Vintage was set up by Kate Palmer, who lives in Toddington, near Winchcombe, a few years back but moved into a store in Evesham’s Vine Mews about three months ago.

Since then the business has gone from strength to strength.

Ms Palmer said: “I set up the business a few years ago but there was such a call for it I wanted to set up a shop. I really like the feel of Evesham.

“We now have a boutique on ASOS, which is really hard to get on. We also have drag queen and burlesque ranges.

“We are one of the main sponsors of the Celebrity Race Club this year with Jamie Lang from reality TV show Made in Chelsea. We are doing really well.”

Ms Palmer recently teamed up with Miss Carenza, who modelled some of her clothing at a fashion show at the Halfway Inn in Kineton.

Miss Carenza, of Stanton near Broadway, added: “The fashion show was fantastic and the dresses were stunning.

“It was great fun walking for her show.”

The keen horse rider also works for a campaign aiming to improve young people’s body image.

“Models of Diversity is going really well,” she said. “The campaign is good and I am going into my old school to chat about body image. Hopefully this will lead to me visiting other schools.”
