The flyers for our first Vintage Fashion & Bridal Fair arrived this morning. They are perfect! Now it may be 4 months to the big event but I am excited already! There has been a lot of interest shown in this vintage fair, and not just by brides-to-be. The event will incorporate fabulous vintage bridal fashions & accessories with vintage special occasion wear, jewellery and all the usual trimmings found at our regular fairs, so it aims to satisfy the  lusts of vintage shopping addicts as well as brides, mothers and guests.

A couple of exhibitors brought along some taster items to our February event so that I could get some advertising images, and our resident retro hairstylist Kelly had fun trying on a gorgeous bridal gown from Banshee Vintage that made her look somewhat like a silver screen goddess.


Brenda from Dream Jewels had brought along one of her prized possessions; a silk and lace gown dating c1850. It caused quite a stir and more than a few murmers of admiration. Needless to say, no-one was brave enough to try this museum piece on no matter how robust it was. The colours and the detail are amazing:

I was also smitten by this vintage head dress and these pretty bridal posies from Dream Jewels. I wonder what tales of vintage romance and love they could tell?

The Frock Around The Clock Vintage Fashion & Bridal Fair will take place on Sunday 13th June 2010 at Malone House, Barnett Demesne, Belfast from 12 noon - 5pm. Watch this space for more details coming soon.
