by Happy Feet – Nottingham’s Swing Dance Society
[above – some of the outfits from Piplotex]
The Flashback II event in Nottingham last week was, in my opinion, fantastically fun!
The evening started off with a taster session of swing dancing by Happy Feet, which was so lively and everyone who got involved clearly enjoyed themselves! I for one would love to have a go!
After the dancing, I had some time looking around the lovely stalls and workshops. Spinster’s Emporium held their own free customising workshop where they had all sorts of haberdashery to transform your clothing. There was several stalls with accessories, both vintage and vintage repro. For example, Love U More were selling their bespoke upcycled accessories such as floral hair pieces and cute bracelets.
I treated myself to some bangles and a hair flower from one of the stalls!
Shortly afterwards, the vintage fashion show commenced, featuring pieces from brands mentioned above such as Piplotex and Frock which were my personal favourites. The Mexican inspired outfit on the left was by far my favourite outfit of the whole night!
After the fashion show, music was played long into the night and I wish I could have stayed longer; the evening really was great and I hope to see another event coming up again soon!
With special thanks to Clementine Paro who organised the whole evening.
