Vintage Fashion Show

Steps of Setting Up A Vintage Fashion Show

Fashion shows are usually held for a number of reasons such as promoting the works of designers and for fundraising in which money is raised for a specific charitable cause. However, a lot goes into holding a smooth show, and if you don’t have the experience or knowledge of how to go about organizing one, the result can be total chaos. If you wish to hold a fashion show in Orange County to showcase your vintage or vintage-inspired collection, to raise funds for a charitable cause, or for any other purpose; the proper organization is necessary. Here are the steps to take in organizing your show.

Get help

Organizing an entire fashion show on your own is tricky. With the multiple tasks that have to be handled, you need a team comprised of talented people such as wardrobe specialists, hair and makeup artists, emcee, seamstresses, and advertisers. This team will help you organize and run a successful fashion show.

Choose the venue

The different elements of the fashion show, from the clothes, makeup and hair to the different parts of the venue need to blend together and tell a single story. The architecture, ceilings, floors and other parts all contribute to the show’s interpretation. For your vintage show, you should find creative ways of making the venue tie in with your vintage collection and theme. When you are holding your Fashion show at an orange county venue or any other place, you also require considering factors such as accessibility, the venue’s reputation, special effects, event flow, budget, and the number of guests to expect. However, don’t be bound by what is normally done. Be creative in your venue selection depending on the type of show you are aiming for. If you are going for a less conventional kind of show, the freedom in venue selection is immense.

Find models

You need models to wear the clothing. You can find models through a variety of ways, such as through an agency, or advertising in a local college. You can also use word of mouth to advertise your planned show and the fact that you are looking for models. Don’t be surprised if you are overwhelmed with the number of interested candidates, in which case you will need to have some criteria for selecting the ones that best fit your requirements.

Plan, plan, plan

The level of planning goes hand in hand with having a great team by your side. You need to fit models, rehearse the entire show so that by the time the show starts, everyone knows what they are supposed to wear, how they are supposed to walk, how and where to strike poses and so on. You also need to make sure that the show everything will fit within the scheduled time period. Have contingency plans in place as well should anything go against the initial plan.

With all the plans in place, the show should ideally run smoothly. In reality, however, a number of things can arise, from wardrobe malfunctions and loose pieces and missing or sick models. Your contingency plans can help you keep the show running, but you also need to be flexible. You will also likely rely on your team a lot to keep handle the problems that arise and keep the show on. Therefore, select members of your team carefully.

Costs to Factor in Your Vintage Wedding Dress Budget

A wedding dress is an important part of the wedding and one that takes a significant chunk of the wedding budget. Many brides don’t mind splurging on their wedding as long as they look beautiful. An equally significant number of brides want to get the best dress for the least amount of money. Whatever the case, it is important for the bride to factor in all possible costs in their budget so that they have the resources ready for any occurrence. Here costs related to wedding dresses which any well-prepared bride must consider.

Purchasing or hiring cost

How much does a wedding dress cost?’ this is a question every bride-to-be must take into account when preparing a wedding budget. Whether you are buying a brand new designer dress or buying or hiring a second-hand dress, you need to know the price range within which your desired dress is likely to fall. Of course, the prices would vary depending on a number of factors including the designer, the details of the dress, and location of the store.

The average cost of buying a new wedding gown is estimated at $1320. Lovers of vintage dresses can find unique, original vintage dresses at varying costs. The exact cost of an original vintage dress will be influenced factors such as the fabric, the uniqueness and embellishment of the dress, and size. The prices are of course likely to be cheaper if you are hiring. If you are getting a custom-made gown, it may cost you more than a ready-made gown.

Shipping costs

If you’re getting your dress from a local store or designer or hiring from someone near you, you can save on the shipping cost. If however, you are getting your wedding from far, you will need to factor the costs of shipping the dress. This cost can be more if you are getting a custom-made dress designed and altered from a far-away designer. This is because there may be several backs and forth shipping costs that must include in your budget.

Alterations

Most brides need their dresses altered several time before the wedding day so it can fit them perfectly. Alterations are inevitable with wedding dresses being bought as early as eight months before the wedding day. The average bride goes for at least three fittings where adjustments are made; spending as much as $250 extra.

Even the lucky ones who find the perfect fit and design on purchase might still need alterations since the body can change significantly in eight months. The exact cost will depend on the seamstress and the extent of the alterations. Some designer salons offer some free adjustments that you can take advantage of. If you have a family member or close friend who can make the adjustments for free, then lucky you! You will not spend as much. If you don’t know anyone with the skillset you need, you must look for a good one early. Any smart bride will consider these costs.

Weddings, though a one-day event, can be costly and can cause a lot of stress. Reduce the stress by being prepared and budgeting for everything, especially the most important ones.

A modern LED touch for your vintage bathroom

1930s dress designs, the 1920s, and 1930s color schemes with lighter, neutral color shades, 1940s-inspired wallpapers, bold post-war colors, exotic pastels of previous years, floral fabrics, dark wood, furniture designs and lighting fixtures; some people just love it vintage. However, even with the love for vintage things, some also like to add a modern touch to their homes. If you are one of these people, how about adding a small modern, relaxing touch to your bathroom with LED shower heads?

LED shower heads are walk-in shower additions that have led lights. They add both beauty and functionality to your bathroom. Different varieties come with different features. These include different sizes and shapes as well as water pressure, several colors changing as the water temperature changes, some are handheld while others are not, and others have different spray settings. Others models allow you to choose a color you want while for others, the color is fully controlled by water temperature. Most of these shower heads also warn you if the water temperature is getting too high. They do this using the LED lights. For the temperature controlled ones, the light will turn red or any other color depending on the specific model. Others have a warning functionality where lights flash letting you know when the water is getting too hot. These shower heads offer several advantages which is why you should consider buying them.

Relaxing water and color therapy

After a long day at work, a shower is likely one of the things you turn to help you relax. Some prefer the relaxing feeling of rain falling softly on them while others enjoy feeling like they are beneath a waterfall. Well, with LED heads, relaxation is taken a notch higher. You get the benefit of water with whatever pressure and the benefits of color especially if you can choose the color you want. Common colors include red, blue, green and purple or a mix of several colors.

Environmental-friendly

These modern shower heads use the running water as their only source of energy. They also help to reduce the amount of energy spent since the water-powered shower heads can well illuminate the bathroom.

Different types and designs

Whether you prefer wall-mounted, rainfall, handheld, or shower panel types, you will find LED shower heads for all these types. The designs are also different, so you have a wide variety to choose from.

Easy installation

Unlike regular electricity-powered shower heads, the LED alternative can be easily installed without the help of a specialist. All one needs to do is to unscrew the old head and to replace it with the new one. Further, the fitting will match almost any standard shower hose.

Fun for kids

Your kids will likely enjoy the colors. With colors changing and others having vertical lines of different colors, the kids will be amazed, and if you are lucky, you will no longer have to sweet-talk them into taking a bath.
With LED shower heads, you get these benefits without paying much more for them. All this and their being water-powered will contribute to you saving some money. They offer a great way to start your day and unwind after a hard day’s work.

The History of Levi Strauss Vintage…

levi strauss vintage jacket

Today’s fashion has been influenced by yesterday’s runway masterpiece and the cycle goes on and on. Fashion has withstood time and time is inevitable.

So how can this be proven? By a simple representation: Jeans.

The Blue Denim that everyone is wearing today both for style and function.

And the braindchild? Levi Strauss.

Levi Strauss originally began his venture into the business in 1853 with an idea from his would-be business partner, Jacob Davis, to create heavy duty jeans meant to workers held together by copper rivets.

Levis Strauss has been a fashion icon for many years now since its birth in 1853. The blue jeans have been invented to be a work wear riveted-for-strength pants that was initially meant for blue collared individuals. The logo has become a symbol of its strength and has since been patented on 1873. The popularity of the pair has since sky rocketed and was praised by not only the niche market they were aiming for, but by different classes all over the country.

The Levis Strauss jean jacket vintage was made notoriously popular when John Wayne, Bing Crosby, James Dean and Steve McQueen started wearing it. Wearing the vintage jean jacket has become the identity of cool and trendy.

Fast forward to today, the Levis Strauss brand still withstands the test of time just like their denim jeans and with it comes another icon fashion wear, the Levis Straus Jean Jacket Vintage. Dubbed as the synonym of freedom and change reflecting the hard working American.

Levis Strauss has banked on another timeless piece with the vintage jean jacket and is sure that this trend will never go away. The brand has made its name through the representation of self-expression and independence.

The vintage denim has now become staple and will be for years to come, an investment that goes beyond monetary value. Levi’s Strauss’s 164 years in the denim business has proven its capacity to create more than just the trend, it has created function within fashion.

The 10 Best 1930’s Vintage Dresses

Every decade has its own focus. When we talk about 1930’s, we have to think about a transition era, where fashion started thinking about the clothes being more fitted and we thought about showing a more curvy figure, think about the hour-glass shape that we have in mind these days.

However, the 30’s had still a lot from the previous decade, and as a result, we found ourselves seeing both boxy silhouettes and more fitted ones. Fashion started giving importance to the waist, and the clothes started reflecting that by highlighting this part with belts and more structure fabrics. The great thing about this is that if you want to channel the 30’s you would probably look like you’re dressing for this age, but with a great retro vibe, due to the elements that make these clothes look very current.

Iconic by UV 1930s Black & Gunite Beaded Chiffon Elysian Dress

View On Amazon

One thing about the clothes from this decade is that we basically got rid of the fringes, and replace them with layers or fabrics that would add a lot of movement to the dress. And even with a photo, you can see that this dress is light as air, and the skirt moves beautifully. That’s because it’s made out of 70% polyester and 30% silk. The opulence of the previous era is present in the side beading, which looks amazing on the black fabric. Being made of such a light material, don’t expect it to stretch at all because if it would, you wouldn’t be able to move so freely. The fabric is also semi-sheer, but you don’t have to worry about see-through because the skirt is completely lined.

Remember that gorgeous dress Emma Stone wore at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards? I do! It was a beautiful blush Valentino with a lot of beaded stars on it, and that remind me a lot of this dress. This model is exactly what we’re talking about the 30’s: a transition silhouette, where the dress is not too boxy but also not too fitted. It’s made out of 100% polyester with a 100% polyamide lining, which guarantees nothing can be seen through the fabric. This dress has a lined hand beading with stars all over it, starting from the V-neckline and going through all over the dress.

Art Deco was one of the biggest artistic influences during the 1920’s and 30’s. It was so much of an influence that even got to permeate our clothes.

It’s made out of 67% polyester, 23% polyamide and 10% spandex, with a lining made out of 95% polyester and 5% spandex. As you can see, it’s made to hug your curves in a very delicate way.

ReVamp Pepper Dress

We would love to say that there was all glamour back then for women. But no, they also had to work both in an office or at their houses, and for those tasks they needed something less beaded and more comfortable. And that’s how we got our first cotton dresses. This model by ReVamp has an interesting square print, on a very nice and practical color, such as blue. Like most of its dresses, this one is handmade in Los Angeles, but also makes its pride about being made out of all natural fibers. The silhouette of this dress is also fitted, but it has an interesting shape at the bottom. The collared neckline makes it even cuter and the buttons help you determine your level of cleavage (and it’s always nice to have that option).

The 11 Best 1940’s Vintage Dresses for Women

The 1940’s were all about the waist and the hour-glass figure. Leaving behind the opulence and the sparkle of the 20’s and early 30’s, this era revolved around comfortable fabrics, high waist tops that accentuated the waist and of course, A-line skirt. We’re not trying to say that this was the only silhouette existing during the 40’s because the pencil skirt also had a big role in women’s fashion around these time. However, the flare for the big skirts was starting and everyone wanted to get them.

The interesting about the 40’s is that you probably didn’t know that most of the retro clothes we can find on the market are from this decade (and also the 50’s). Just think about it: when you mention retro or vintage, you can find yourself thinking about an A-line skirt with a cardigan or about any of the dresses that we are about to show you. You know what’s the best part is? They’re on trend right now!

This is what I’m talking about: can you think of any other dress that looks more retro? Because I don’t! It’s almost like the pin-up style was condensed on a dress and delivered to us. This red beauty is 97% Polyester, 3% Spandex and it has everything from the 400’s. The waist, the skirt, the color, the polka dots. One great thing about this piece is its sleeveless quality and the beautiful halter silhouette on the top. This is a dress you can wear with heels or flats and feel instantly fabulous. It’s so pretty we wish it would come in more colors, but life can’t be always perfect.

Big A-line skirts, that’s what 940’s were all about. The fuzz was so big that in 1947, Christian Dior created something we got to know the ‘New Look’, a concept of dressing that will totally accentuate the waist and give women the ultimate hourglass silhouette, along with a ton of elegance. This model embodies everything of the New Look’s essence, in the classiest color of them all. Made out of 100% polyester for a solid consistency (especially from the skirt), it features a scoop neck and a four button line at the top. A dress like this will give you a chic status you would’ve never dreamed of.

1940s Cord Dress

Of course, there were women that didn’t really love the idea of a big puffy skirt (with which you probably had to wear something underneath to keep it up), so fashion came up with a different strategy. And that’s how we have the shirt dress, an item that has changed over the years but it keeps its essence: it looks like a long shirt, but more stylish. This piece by J Peterman is 100% made out of cotton, which makes it an excellent piece, very breathable and light. It features a very beautiful button down front, kind of like a long rope with a very chic vibe to it. The good news is that you can get this dress from a very wide range of sizes (from 2 to 20 plus), but you have to be careful because the length varies from 44” to 47” depending on the size. Dry cleaning is recommended for this item.

This dress is so retro that is one of the few that features a big part of the 40’s: padded shoulders. If you were wondering about the fur collar yes, it is included. And it’s because of this detail that dry cleaning is the most recommended option here.

Stop Staring! Ella Cherry Wiggle Dress

Very fitted dresses are a great option for the thin ladies out there, and also for the curvy ones that are proud to show their figures. But the problem the thing girls have is that, with a piece of clothing so body-hugging, they can actually look too skinny. To help with this matter we have printed fabric, as this beautiful cherry pattern developed by Stop Staring! This dress is made out of 55% polyester, 42% cotton, and 3% spandex, definitely a lot of structure here. The neckline is very retro and vintage-looking, and the balloon shape of the sleeves makes it even cuter. One piece of advice direct from the fabricants: the dress runs small, so it’s better if you pick a size up to ensure a perfect fit.

The 10 Best 1920’s Vintage Dresses for Women

The glorious 20’s will forever remind us of The Great Gatsby. It was a time for opulence, glitter, beading, dancing and singing. And it was so cool that we keep recreating it and adding our style to it because fashion keeps coming back to all the resources this decade gave us for clothing.

Of course, when you think about the 1920’s your mind goes straight to the flapper dress. The fringe and the sparkling details catch our eye from the very beginning, and again, fashion has been trying to emulate that same effect every now and then for decades. However, one of the most important things we have to consider when it comes to the 20’s is the silhouette. Nothing fitted, just boxy dresses that were more relaxed and fun. Why? Because in that time the ideal body didn’t have a small waist like we all dream about now, and dresses wanted to highlight another feature. Also, there’s life beyond the fringe, and 1920’s have a lot more to offer.

If you’re thinking about a vintage dress, this is a great decade to look into. You would look fabulous at parties and events without much effort.

This is what we mean when we say there’s life beyond the fringe. The 1920’s had a preference for ‘midi’ length (actually, every decade before the 60’s did) and that calls for more loose fittings. One brand that’s particularly good at dressing you like you live in some other time it’s Unique Vintage, and you’ll confirm that through this post. This model is 100% nylon, and the biggest feature is its intricate hand beaded that will definitely stand out in any situation. One good thing about wearing vintage and retro clothing these days is that the pieces come with a modern edge. This dress, for example, has a little bit of a stretch quality, which makes it fitted. Two important things to have in mind: you can only wash this by hand if you want to last more than one party, and the slip you see in the photo is sold separately.

Imagine it for a ball or a wedding, with modern accessories… you’ll nail it! This dress biggest attractive are the ½ sleeves, these play with the concept of see-through and look absolutely great.

Unique Vintage knows that is not always about the beading, but also about the quality of the fabric and a very nice silhouette. This dress, for example, features a drop waist fitting that goes perfectly with its ‘midi’ length. On the top part you can find beaded details that will highlight the straps and the center detail, pair with a see-through fabric. This material is very light, but you have to keep in mind that it doesn’t stretch at all.

From a very light and discrete dress to a piece that will tell everyone you’re coming from a mile distance. This dress is made out polyester and chiffon, a combination that makes it light but strong enough to support the hand embroidery that it comes with. This option is great for a night party, in which you want to catch everyone’s attention. Trust me, you will get it. You have to take into consideration the fact that this dress can be a little heavier than anything in your closet, due to the embroidery weight. Also, consider that it goes from 02 to 26 in sizing, but the length is the same for all the options (90.53 cms or 35 inches).

Sometimes we think about getting a dress that will look expensive but at the same time not having to spend all our money on it, especially if it’s not a dress we’re going to wear on a regular basis. And as much as we love beading, we have to admit that we can’t always afford it. That’s why we have options like this Sakhee dress, with a very beautiful beading that is not excessive but it doesn’t leave you thinking about wanting more. This evening chiffon dress has a great embroidery design and a tunic silhouette, but you will notice that is a little shorter than all the other options, which makes it flirty and fun.
