There's a cool event being held this Sunday afternoon at Art Central:
A group of Calgary vintage clothing sellers are bringing their wares to Art Central for a unique one day only “Vintage Pop-up Marketplace”.
After a successful Vintage Style Week held at Fashion Central in September of last year, this group of vintage clothing sellers have decided to do another show. “We thoroughly enjoyed bringing our vintage fashions to the downtown core.” said Leslie Holth, co-owner of Vintage Bliss. “Calgarians appreciate the uniqueness and quality of these one of a kind items and love working them into their wardrobes. They also understand how wearing vintage is not only fashionable, but sustainable, as these items have no environmental impact on our world.”
Holth, along with vendors Bonton Vintage and Patina Design Works will be selling clothing, jewellery, accessories and select collectibles from the 1920s to the 1980s. There will be a special focus on party dresses for graduation and gala events as well as clothing and gifts for guys and girls for upcoming Valentine’s Day.
“We will also have roving models dressed in vintage finery, a professional photographer documenting the event and other vintage related surprises.” said Holth. “A Dress to Remember” happens on Sunday, January 30th from 12 noon to 6pm at Art Central. The marketplace will be held on the lower level common area of the building. Art Central is located on the corner of Center Street and 7th Avenue SW.
