“Frock Me!” Vintage Fashion Event in June, London

Frock Me! on June 8th is a vintage fashion event that is held in London several times a year at the Chelsea Town Hall. In addition to clothing, pick up accessories such as hats, shoes, gloves and jewellery from a retro era.

And according to Frock Me! organizers, vintage clothing attracts a diverse clientele, from stylists and models to fashion students and collectors and even stage and film costume designers.

Those looking to mingle with designers and celebrities may well spot them rummaging for fashion one-offs in the crowd as items can reportedly be found to suit “all tastes and budgets”.

Stocking items from a range of eras including the 1920s, 1950s and 1960s, period Pucci, Lanvin and Chanel items are all among those likely to be found at Frock Me!

Vintage Fashion Fair in London April 6

Are you going? I have a feeling this one is going to be even more amazing than the last. The Vintage Fashion Fair will be held on Sunday 6th April in Notting Hill.
Anita Bott founded this one after the end of her previous partnership with Battersea Vintage Fashion Fairs. Anita’s Vintage Fashion Fairs (AVFF) organizes six fairs a year and features vintage clothing, textiles and accessories dating from 1800 to 1970. Everything from vintage buttons, braids and trimmings to stage costumes and high fashion can be found at the Vintage Fair.
She is hoping to make this the Number One Vintage Fair in the UK and is off to a great start because AVFF was voted 16th out of Vogue’s 100 ‘Guide to the Greatest Shops off the Beaten Track’.

Ancient Vintage Fashion Inspiration

Don’t feel bad if you look to past iconic eras of fashion for inspiration, everybody does. The decades that come to mind instantly might be the 70’s or even the 20’s.. sometimes it might be the BC’s!

    prom11.jpgGuys, how will you express yourself at the Prom? It doesn’t have to be boring or uncomfortable, there are fun alternatives and choices you can make to feel like you are expressing yourself just as well as the girls in gowns. Even if you are required to wear certain things like only black tuxes you can express yourself in colorful accessories like a colorful vest or jewelry and cufflinks.

    Check out this article where the guys are showing off their school colors.

    “Prom will be a chance to display school colors for Carey Fleming, a Clinton High School junior who plans to wear red accessories with his white tuxedo.
    He won’t be alone.
    “A solid third is either white or ivory,” said Jamie Martin, manager at Tuxedo Junction at Metrocenter mall where Fleming works part time.

    Even more Tux advice here in this article “Guys can use accessories to punch up tux”

    Here is someone who really went DIY with his fashion and made his own tux.. out of Coke Cans!

    How about a Hoodie with a tie printed on it? It looks very cool!

    Oh and if you have to wear a tie somewhere it doesn’t need to be boring!

    If you really want to go ALL OUT and get crafty like Mr Coke Can did check out Duct Tape Fashions.
