…Great fun had by vintage lovers at jelly’s Open for Art Festival workshop
Friday 3 July saw the first of an exciting new vintage workshop ‘Step into Vintage’ launched as part of jelly’s Open for Art Festival at the Jelly studios, Jackson’s Corner in Reading. Delegates were treated to an informative and enjoyable evening finding out about the benefits of vintage fashion and how to incorporate it into their wardrobes. The workshop was run by Alexandra Vintage and All Vintaged Up, two local vintage businesses who work closely together to champion vintage fashion.
Following talks by Alexandra Vintage and All Vintaged Up, there was a vintage quiz, some fizz and an opportunity for some personal styling and shopping. Delegates had lots of fun experimenting with the vintage clothing and accessories collections on offer and of course plenty of selfies were taken to share on social media sites!
Gayle Stone, who attended the Step into Vintage workshop said, “I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. It was informal and fun, and has given me some great tips and knowledge to help me wear and buy vintage clothing and accessories in the future.”
Helen Brown of All Vintaged Up said, “It is great to be able to share our passion and knowledge of vintage fashion with others and to see them get excited about the unique looks that can be created. Vintage is an affordable and ethical option, which is becoming increasingly important to a lot of consumers when it comes to shopping for clothes and accessories. Not to mention how versatile vintage is, it is a great choice for so many reasons and we want to convert as many women as we can. Join in the vintage conversation by following our hash-tag #CHOOSEVINTAGE.”
