Fashion Week – Vintage Avant Garde

After months of planning with blood sweat and tears fashion week came and went really quickly!! This year I managed to get to many of the fabulous events during the week – you can see all the shows here –

With the help of the totally fabulous Kerry aka we organised the vintage element of the week.

My original concept was too look at vintage differently – there are always so many images of victory rolls and pin up style looks – don’t get me wrong I love that but just wanted to do something a little different so Vintage Avant Garde was born!! A mix of Marie Antoinette with just a touch of Vivienne Westwood!!

This year the venue was the stunning Norwich Puppet Theatre – transformed for the evening with flowers and props hanging from the ceiling!!

It was a long day and the show was a sell out. Here are just a few images of the show.

I must say a big thank you to all involved – who organised the models with perfection, all the models, hostesses, photographers who captured the evening, the vintage shops and designers who showcased some stunning outfits and to everyone who came along and enjoyed the event.
My thoughts have already turned to next year – it is always hard to come up with new ideas and this show was such a success thanks to all involved it’s gonna be difficult but I do love a challenge!!
