Wildilocks is just brimming over with busy-ness of late, with all salons heavily booked and with a whole lot of new faces lately, and we expect many more in the upcoming months. Welcome! We’ve had lots of new stock and increasing amounts of vintage focused clients, which leads me to today’s post.
Melbourne has it’s very own Vintage Fair happening this weekend! Organised by Sydney Vintage Clothing fair’s Janel Morrissey, 50 exhibitors from all over Australia will be gathering at the Exhibition Hall at the Melbourne Showgrounds from 5.30 tonight and all day Saturday and Sunday.
Janel’s Sydney fair is reputed to be the best in Oz – a true vintage event with people dressing up, dancing, hair and make up tutorials, talks and presentations and fashion parades. At 12.30pm on Saturday, Nicole Jenkins, proprietor of Circa Vintage Clothing in Fitzroy Melbourne and author of Love Vintage will present a parade of vintage fashions from the 1920s to 1970s featuring swimwear, day wear, evening wear and ballgowns.
