The Grapevine Convention Center will transform into a step back in time the weekend of October 26 and 27th. The Dallas Vintage Clothing & Jewelry Show brings together the best of vintage fashion and jewelry for those who adore vintage.
The word “vintage”, when used with clothing and jewelry, means dating back to between the 1920’s and 1960’s. The best of these decade’s fashion designs will be for sale at this show.
You may wonder why the vintage look is in style now. Take a look at supermodels and celebrities who dress vintage, such as: Kate Moss, Dita von Teese, Renee Zellweger, Julia Roberts and Chloe Sevigny. These stars have made headlines with their vintage fashion flair.
A second reason is for resourcefulness. The idea of reusing second-hand clothes and jewelry can help with our goal of recycling instead of throwing away perfectly useful items.
True vintage items are made from sustainable materials that don’t show wear and tear like some of our newer clothing items do. The jewelry may be considered “costume” to some, but the pure vintage look offers much to be admired.
Vintage vendors travel in to display their wares at this marvelous show: Erik Yang of “Lush Life Antiques”, Janet Waldrop with “Skip 2 My Lou”, “A Collective Nest” from Norman, OK., “Lady Di Antiques” from China Grove, NC, “Pure Vintage Chicago” from Chicago, IL and of course my local favorite “Vintage Martini” from Carrollton. I have attached a previous article below showing a few of the Vintage Martini’s fine items.
Free admission to this event is given to those who wear their vintage fashion from head to toe! If you lack the proper coiffure to finish your vintage look, local celebrity hair stylist Lynne Evans of Vintage Flair will offer her vintage hair fashions to patrons of the show.
The Grapevine Convention Center is located at 1209 South Main Street. Hours for this show are Friday, October 26, 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. and Saturday, October 27, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Complete details are available on their website.
If you’re considering going vintage for Halloween, you won’t want to miss this show!
