Stardust Years Vintage Fashion, 3 Walcote Place, off the upper High Street, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 9AP
Owner of Stardust Years Vintage Fashion, Karen Fitzsimmons gives an informal talk on some of the unsung heroines of vintage fashion and design. PRE-BOOKING ESSENTIAL.
Join us for a glass of wine at around 5 before a talk starting at 5.15 on the women behind the fashions. The lives and creations of a number of designers – some of whom may be less well-known, but all of whom played a part in forming the wardrobes of women of the time and the present day – will form the main part of the talk. Stardust Years Vintage Fashion’s owner, Karen Fitzsimmons will be using photos and vintage garments to illustrate the impact of these extraordinary fashion designs and creators and to show how their work is still relevant today.
Karen’s enthusiasm for vintage and her love of Hollywood glamour led her to open Stardust Years in 2013, and this talk takes as its inspiration the women whose work contributed so much. While still referencing the legacy of more famous designers, Karen will also be showcasing some of those comparatively unsung designers whose impact is no less valid.
● Saturday 15 September: 1700-1745
Max 15 people per tour/session. Talk will take around 30 minutes.
We’re opposite the Rider and Horse statue, just off the top of the High St, close to the Great Hall and the Westgate.
