On Saturday, The Fedora Lounge held it’s first ever Melbourne meet. It was a very busy day with many cocktail bars and the Deco exhibition at the NGV all squished in there, along with a spat of charlestoning.
Anna and I were working in the shop on Saturday, but a few of the Loungers were able to meet me for a morning coffee at the Gertrude Street Enoteca and a bit of a Show and Tell at Circa.
It’s not often I get a chance to show an appreciative audience some of favourite 1920s and 1930s garments undergoing restoration.
Mojito and Splatt – I’m in the middle, holding the Art Deco catalogue.
Thanks to Mojito and Splatt for letting me use their photos – for the full set, please see the Fedora Lounge post about the day. Another event is coming up on August 30th. This time I think I’ll tag along for the cocktails!
