Australian Antique and Art Dealers Association Fair 2016

One of my favourite local events for the hunt of vintage and antique clothing events is soon coming up – the Australian Antique and Art Dealers Association Fair. “Antiques and Art” might conjure up a vision limited to furniture, jewellery, and exquisite works by old masters (not to mention a price range out of reach […]

ROCK AROUND RANDWICK RETRO AND VINTAGE FAIR 2016

This was the Sixth Rock Around Randwick vintage fair, but its been a few years since I’ve attended and I was curious to see how it was running.

Expertise Events and the Lindy Charm School for Girls […]

How to Gatsby

It’s that time of year again – after planning our Napier Art Deco wardrobes and devising our own unofficial schedule with friends to go alongside the official program, it’s time to finish packing the bags and prepare for the moment the wheels on the plane go up. I was asked to give the “How to […]
