It may seem like just yesterday, but the 90s are officially a vintage era. We should have seen it coming when wearing double denim was no longer a faux pas and rumpled bed head hairstyles started to appear on the catwalks.

Now designer Wayne Hemingway and a team of academics from the University of Wolverhampton have confirmed that the early part of the decade, 1991-1992 (the period that saw 90210 become the most famous postcode in the world and Bryan Adams’ (Everything I Do) I Do It For You spend 16 weeks at Number 1), can now officially be classed as vintage as a result of the 20-year gap, reports the Telegraph.

To celebrate, Hemingway has gone with a 90s vibe for his Vintage Festival this year. Taking place in Boughton Estate in Northamptonshire from 13-15 July, the festival will play host to 90s-style Madchester raves with DJs such as Terry Farley, Danny Rampling and Norman Jay on the decks, while the vintage marketplace will be selling nostalgic novelties and 90s designer finds.

We've already started revisiting our, rapidly diminishing, youth - check out our Nineties Nostalgia gallery here.
