Vintage in Brisbane

My lovely friend Mistress Chrissy of  The Lindy Charm School for Girls was interviewed by ABC radio in Brisbane over the wekend to talk about vintage fashion and the upcoming heritage calendar.  I had to share this one with you.

Thank you to ABC Radio and Peter Scott for this piece.

“Remember the clothes you, your mum or grandmother wore in the fifties and sixties? What was worn on the Gold Coast?

It’s becoming more and more popular for people to collect or wear vintage fashions. The old clothes will be a feature this weekend at a fashion parade and next weekend at a fashion fair.

Christine Keepence (pictured) talked about what was so good about these fashions. Looking very striking in her forties maternity wear, she says one of the most important features of these fashions was that they were made to last.  Listen to Chrissie here, especially for the story she tells about the blue and white denim full-piece swim suit that can be seen hanging over the rail in the picture.

You can see the parade of vintage fashions at this weekend’s “The Way We Wear Fashion Fair” will be at the Greek Community Centre, Bundall on Saturday 15th May (12 noon – 6pm) and  Sunday 16th (10am – 3pm).”
