Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have noticed that vintage has been firmly establishing itself as a hot fashion trend. Even the likes of Beyonce, Julia Roberts, Kate Moss and even Michelle Obama have been snapped embracing the vintage vibe. And with no signs of this trend slowing down, the nationwide Love Vintage Clothing Show & Sales will be a haven for nostalgia, entertainment and amazing shopping!
Whether your fashion obsession is fabulous 1920s beaded dresses (think Underbelly Razor and The Great Gatsby), glamorous couture gowns from the 50s, or seriously groovy 70s suits, boots, belts and buckles, you’ll find stylish, funky, quirky and glamorous gear for guys and girls at Love Vintage. Discover designer fashion brought in from New York, London and Paris – you might just find a vintage treasure from Mary Quant, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Versace or Prada.
Australia’s best dealers in vintage, antique and retro textiles, jewellery, homewares and collectables, all set to come together under one roof. Specialist traders will be selling wonderful antique tablecloths, hand-made aprons, vintage sewing patterns and magazines, antique prints, jewelled ‘50s compacts and lipstick cases, rare Bakelite brooches, the prettiest parasols, quirky kitchenalia, vintage posters and prints, and so much more!
Enjoy fashion parades, workshops and music all weekend, and visitors are especially encouraged to dress in vintage chic at the show’s ‘Red Carpet’ opening on Friday evening. Wear your favourite fashions from the 1920s to ‘50s, ’60s to (uh oh!) ’80s complete with accessories, makeup and hair styling – strut your stuff on the catwalk for our judges and you might be crowned ‘Best Dressed in Vintage’. There are lots of fabulous prizes to be won! Our glamorous hostess and mistress of parades, Miss Bonnie Rose, is pictured above right.
Admission: Saturday & Sunday: Adults $14, Seniors $12, Children (10-16 years) $7, Children under 10 free. Friday Night event ticket prices to be confirmed. Tickets available at the door or online at www.lovevintage.com.auShare
