Vintage Fashion Event: Hammersmith Town Hall

The vintage Fashion event was held at the Hammersmith Town Hall on Sunday 19th May 2013: I hurried there after the car-booty at Battersea Park; missing this event was not an option.

So much choice in this event compared to the Alexandra palace vintage fair, in terms of fashion and accessories. Fur coats, Vintage jeweler, 1920s-30s handbags, vintage lace fabrics. I was excited to find a vintage Mary Quant's dress . Mary Quant was the legendary London designer who brought about the Miniskirt and Hot-pants style. If you like Minis and Hot pants i can imagine you thinking (Aaahh God Sent).

The Legendary Mary Quant Dress
I spotted this exquisite late 1930s vintage cashmere evening coat- , beautifully padded shoulders with small waist and wide hemline:

I would love to share with you, on different posts,- the stores or individuals selling, hiring clothes/costumes around London. I met quite a few of these lovely people at there and it was just nice to have a chat. For some- collecting Vintage clothes is a passion and the event was giving them the opportunity to share their collection with the public and of course make a few sales.
