A Conversation with Vintage
I was the only guy there. Well, apart from the staff, of course. The presentation at MAKE Business HUB was indeed about vintage, but it had a decidedly female-oriented focus.
That's not to say it was a complete loss for me; presenter Rawya Catto delivered a pretty comprehensive walk-through on vintage trends in social media, food, film/TV and mainstream fashion, and also covered ancillary topics like the difference between vintage and retro (something to do with actually having been produced for use in the historical period). In addition, she listed a few local options, from high end dealer Garderobe to the more bargain-friendly Flea Market, and brought along a few samples for examination by the audience.
