A collection of antique and vintage delights
Vintage clothing is a trend which has become steadfast in the vocabulary of fashionistas. It is also a trend not solely dedicated to either sex which makes the reaches of vintage fashion even more impressive. Across Australia there are a growing number of vintage fairs and markets which are delivering the most decadent examples of yesteryear fashion, accessories and home wares to eagerly awaiting customers.
The 2014 Way We Wear Vintage Fair this Autumn will be a highlight on any vintage fashion lover's calendar. It gives them an opportunity to not only dress in their finest wares and 'Frock Up' to the event for a chance to win $200 but the opportunity to rifle through some of the country's best hand-selected vintage pieces to restock their wardrobes with.
Dress for Vintage Fair Success
The Frock Up event has been held twice annually since its inception in 2007. From quaint beginnings in a small town hall to a growing collection of dealers who now easily fill the Mt Gravatt showgrounds, the vintage fair has certainly enjoyed helping the vintage wares revival.
This year over 30 vintage dealers are expected bringing their coveted collections of antique items and retro clothing spanning 80 years from the 1920's all the way to early nineties. You can be assured that there will be some decadent fifties prom dresses to swoon over as well as rockin' platforms to dig, not to mention the collection of hats, pins, shawls, bags, gloves and aprons amongst others on offer. For antique collectors there will also be glorious old-school chairs, kitsch house wares, intricate lamps, ornate mirrors and memorable paintings to round out the wonderful collection at the Way We Wear Fair.
The Way We Wear Vintage Fair 2014 will be held at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds in Queensland from the 21st to the 23rd of March. Tickets are $8 for concession and seniors, $5 for children and $10 for adults. Children under 12 are free. For more information connect with them online at Frock Up Brisbane.
