A touch of nostalgia as vintage style comes to Laurencetown
A private collection of authentic vintage clothes and accessories owned by The Living Vintage Company, will be displayed in a fashion show extravaganza in Laurencetown on Saturday June 14.
Living Vintage is a travelling fashion show where models ‘put on the style’ and show off a magnificent collection of some of the most stylish haute couture of the forties and fifties, in a great atmosphere of fun and nostalgia.
Owned by sisters Bridget Owens and Marian Keenan, Living Vintage is a not for profit organisation and all monies raised are donated to the designated charity - the “Education4 Life” programme run by Sr Bernadette Duffy in South Africa and Living Vintage’s chosen charity - Cancer Research.
Living Vintage very much welcomes this first visit to Laurencetown as they have many fans and supporters in the area who have attended the shows all over Ulster.
Bridget said: “Living Vintage evenings are great fun with plenty of laughs and many happy nostalgic memories.
“We are extremely proud of our collection of authentic forties and fifties fashion and all the outfits are accessorised with the appropriate vintage hats, gloves, bags, jewellery and of course, seamed stockings.
Bridget’s sparkling script is pervaded with a hilarious story line with one of the models Marian, as she shares her quest and frustrations in finding a date and a husband.
Marian who travels from Ballymena, is a co founder of Living Vintage and expresses her desire to be happily married whilst modelling an amazing range of 1940-1950’s coats.
The audience welcomes her appearance in each round and has great sympathy for the plight she finds herself in.
The evening will showcase day dresses, suits and evening wear and is rounded off by a stunning bridal show.
Living Vintage fashion shows have been met with huge acclaim all over Northern Ireland and beyond, and their fashion shows are regularly complete sell-outs. Make sure to get your ticket early to avoid disappointment.
The event takes place on Saturday June 14 in the GAC Hall, School Road, Laurencetown at 7.30pm with doors opening at 7.00pm.
So sit back, relax and be transported back through your mummy’s or grand mummy’s wardrobe.
