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.
