Nicole Jenkins is one of the leading lights in Australian vintage circles, with a reputation that extends far beyond the local scene to an international audience. One of the best types of vintage dealers – a lady who came to it through a passion for both textile art and social history, and who acquired many years’ worth of hands-on experience before opening her own vintage shop. She wrote a very thorough, practical, beautifully illustrated and accessible guide to vintage in her first book, Love Vintage (2009).
She is now venturing on a second foray into publishing, with Style is Eternal – launching tomorrow night at Berkelouw Books in Paddington (click through the link to purchase tickets to the event). This book promises to offer suggestions on how to invest in a wardrobe and accessories that offer versatility and your own personal enduring style – and from conversations I’ve had with Nicole over the years, and insights she’s shared, it promises to be as delightful and as practical as her first book.
I’ll be there tomorrow night if anyone wants to say a hallo, and am looking forward to reading and reviewing the book!
