Catwalk and Cocktails; The New Vintage Look

Being interested in all things 1940s & 50s we were very flattered to be approached to be included in the catwalk show for The New Vintage Look. We eagerly obliged as this evening was for a great cause, all money raised went to the Royal Brompton hospital in London. This event was organised by the lovely Bethan Soanes who you may know from her blog Nothing but Bettina Scarlett.

The event took place in the luxurious burlesque venue Proud Cabaret and being a stones throw away from our office we decided we had to go. So after a long day in the office we decided to glam ourselves up and head for an evening of vintage reproduction fashion and cocktails.

 After walking in to the venue filled with a gorgeous crowd in their 40s & 50s finest we found a table and had a gander at the show pack. Filled with an introduction to each of the clothing brands and sponsors and some freebies this was a great memento for the night.

We played the CD in the office the next day to relive some of those wonderful retro tunes that accompanied to catwalk show.

We managed to choose some delicious cocktails and settled in to watch the catwalk shows and entertainment. (I forget the name of mine but it included Gin, Grapefruit & Elderflower and went down rather nicely)

There were a few vintage repro brands showcased and each had around 12 outfits. We included a mixture of our new SS2012 collection and our classic pieces in our segment of the catwalk show and were excited when we caught a glimpse of the first outfit.

Our New Futura Play Suit on the catwalk. Find it here on our site!

Our Dolores Doll White Hibiscus (find it here) is our classic swing dress in our ivory and pistachio hibiscus print new for this Spring! This great photo of the show was taken by photographer Tigz Rice.

We had a great night the outfits in the show were gorgeous and I came away with a few more things on my list of clothes I NEED in my life.

All in all a great night of Vintage fashion!
