  1. As someone who has spent a lifetime in the fashion business in the Uk I went with trepidation to Nicole’s talk to the U3A . Most of the so-called “Vintage ” shops I have encountered in Melbourne are in reality merely selling old clothes . However it was soon apparent that Nicole is not only a true enthusiast but extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the Vintage field . Well done -most enjoyable ,thank you Nicole
