Pics! Melbourne Vintage Clothing Show – Circa fashion parade

As you know, on Saturday Circa held a vintage fashion parade at the Melbourne Vintage Clothing Show.

The room was packed – I didn’t want to obstruct anyone’s view so these pics are taken down the side…hence the sometimes unflattering angles… This is part one of my Melb Vintage Clothing Show, a second post will follow and also an edited video where you can see the front of the frocks.

Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone who helped make the event happen –

The fabulous Master of Ceremonies: Andrew McClelland.
The wonderful models: Candice, Kylie, Prue, Alex, Fiona, Eszter, Becky, Anna, Lux and Loretta.
The great backstage crew: Anniene, Cass, Esther and Erika.
The video camera operator: my darling husband Tim.
The invaluable Circa shop ladies for helping me get all the outfits together: Victoria, Esther, Erika and Kate.
Janel, the show organiser for inviting us to be a part of the first Melbourne Vintage Clothing Show.

The soundtrack featured select swing dance classics by Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman. And now….the pics….as always, click on an image to see in full, click again to see in full size. Fashions from the ’20s to the ’70s.

For more pics from the parade, see Carli’s blog Konad-licious!. Thanks Carli! Chealse V on Flickr also has some great shots – and much better lighting too.


  1. It was a great fair. Sadly I missed your show as I was there on Sunday. Pray tell, where is Marianne from Esme and the Laneway? She’s so warm and down-to-earth (which is nice in the sometimes exclusory vintage scene). I’d hoped to see her in some of your pictures.

    Beautiful frocks indeed.

  2. Sorry you missed the parade Rae, but hopefully the pics (and video when it’s done) will help compensate – was hoping Marianne could join us – she modelled for the Lindy Charm School just before and sadly had another engagement so had to miss the parade.
