This weekend Ian is at the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show! It should be one amazing day – and he promised when he spoke with Alan Neal of CBC Ottawa Radio’s All in a Day, he’s bringing the items pictured here.
But that’s not because they’re the best, most expensive, or most desirable labels we have – it’s because what we do well at shows such as this is to have wearable items that are relevant to contemporary fashion. These items reference the Fall 2015 Collections from Balmain for H&M, Givenchy, Dries Van Noten among others.
Victorian and Gothic-inspired items have a dark allure for those who live in winter cities – these items just need fashion-savvy people to make them their own.
Catching trends on the upswing is easy with vintage – this winter you can wear things on the cutting edge of yesteryear, that are somehow fresh again. Keep them for another 20 years, and you can hit the fashion cycle in its Influential stage again!
We’ll also have classic items from every decade from the past 100 years – all wearable, stylish (not just fashionable) and in the best condition one could hope to find them in.
Please do come to see us at the show!
