If you're a hard-core vintage clothing fan like me, or you're just looking for a great hat or piece of jewellery to set off your fall outfit, you don't have to go all the way to New York to find beautiful vintage clothing and accessories. This Sunday, October 21st, is the Gadsden's Toronto Vintage Clothing Show at Wychwood Barns. The show runs from 11 am - 4 pm and features 30 dealers selling everything from bakelite jewellery to 20's cloche hats and 1960's two-tone pumps. Admission is $8.
I attended the Spring show last April and was impressed with the selection, and the prices, and picked up a couple of hats, an orange angora cardigan, and some barkcloth that was intended for curtains (which still haven't been made). I'm wearing one of the hats in the photo below.
For more information about the show and the dealers who will be there, check out their website here.
I finally found a photo of what I was wearing to the reception for the Art of Fashion Design Competition. I wore the Jack McConnell hat that I purchased at the Spring Toronto Vintage Show, and a Joseph Ribkoff jumpsuit from The Sentimentalist.
