Vintage clothing and accessory addicts are performing the ‘happy dance’ all over Sydney as they receive word of a new bygone fashion market coming to town.
The uber stylish peeps at the Vintage Fashion Emporium will play host to a regular Fashion Bazaar, on the first Saturday of every month, featuring 11 permanent and six visiting stallholders selling everything from vintage clothing and accessories to second-hand designer goods, for lasses and lads.
Sift through wracks of pretty 1950s Peggy Sue dresses and black Audrey-inspired frocks from the 60s, or have some fun channelling your inner Cameron Diaz (The Sweetest Thing) trying on bold jumpsuits and sequinned jackets from the 80s.
The guys will like it too. Whether it’s the discerning fashion-conscious male, or lads on the hunt for a bucks party costume, there’s no shortage of choice with classic black tuxs, tweed jackets, safari suits and accessories a plenty.
And there’s more reasons to visit than the possibility of finding a once in a lifetime vintage Chanel handbag – go for free styling advice, live music and high tea to boot.
